Hey Derek

Thanks for the report. As we saw at PIR you can do
EVerything right and still not bust that record 8^o
Still don't know how you do your best 60', best 1/8th,
and best top speed but do it all slower, LMAO!

Anyway I feel you guys are running great consistant
times and putting on some damn fine racing!

> We might push the motors even harder next time.

I know it's got to be frustrating to be soooo close to
those 7's but maybe you guys can do it in steps (for
data collection of course 8^) and keep Bill from
throwing down the full furry of those A123 batteries
at them 8^o

Congrats again on some very respectful runs and here's
wishing you all the best EVen if you are all a bunch
of battery brutes 8^P LMAO!!!
