Default Savage in the snow

Decided I had to run my RC even if it has been snowing. She is real clean now after blowing all the snow off.

Its a channel marker, when your at the track you put that on and it tells you what channel you have and any of the other drivers will be able to tell if you have the same channel. Most tracks ask you what channel your on and most people run 2.4ghz anyways so its not that big of a deal.

We have been running with a lot of people lately so I put it on so nobody runs me into the wall. Last time we went out there was a guy who turned his truck on to start it and I was controlling it for him while I was driving. No one has to ask what crystal I'm using.

maybe its the video but that thing does not sound like its on the pipe? i find my savage will not hit second until its on the pipe...could be the video or maybe a different engine? i have the f4.6 and it spins up much faster than that...unless its not reaching operating temp or to rich. at which point, it acts just like that, top end misfire.

maybe its just me
