Hey, im wondering if anyonehere is from williamsville or amherst (new york) wants to race their micro t on a dirt track, because im making a groomed track thats pretty first class. It's planned witha tabletop corner, double jump, and a weird sort of tabletop with a jump on top I thought of. It is being constructed right now in my yard, and it has that courragated black tubing stuff in super small version. Its 6' by 10' right now but I may expand it to 10 by 12, email me if you are interested in joining a possible club at corman14221@aol.com. thanks

If I remove the motor and put a voltmeter in place. I will see voltage for a couple of seconds and then it goes to 0. I don't think it is the motor.

in that case, its either a glitching problem, sometimes it can be a bad antenna on your pcb, or it sometimes can be the batteries in your controller. if neither of them, than the pcb unit is acting weird

I am disappointed in my Micro DT runtime; 5 minutes or less. I will definitely get a LiPo for it.

But for even longer times, what would be the problem with putting a second pack in the wheelie bar attachment and connecting in parallel with the battery in the chassis? This would require some mods to run a wire from battery 2 to 1

Any reason this is a no-no?

Regards
