Was a lot of fun for sure. Great to see you out to the race Kev! Hopefully you'll enjoy that set-up on your truggy for Tillsonburg.

Lipo Fire - THAT was something to see! The guy was blazing down the straight-away, when his buggy simply lost ALL power, and rolled to a stop about 30 feet farther down. The announcer was yelling "WATCH THE STRAIGHT WATCH THE STRAIGHT" when all of a sudden...POOOOF!!! Flames started to fly 2 feet out of the side of his car!!! It was UNreal.

Will definitely be going back!!!!

Deans plugs can pass WAY more power than is consumed by an 1/8, my 42 volt airplane lipo's do just fine through deans. I do use a zip tie in me electric buggy to make sure they stay plugged in incase of a hard crash.
Since you asked:
Ben Wheeler 10th B-main truggy expert
Willy Howells 5th c-main open truggy.
Mark Hopcraft DNS (missed his main. Announcements totally sucked all weekend) expert d-main truggy. 1st expert buggy f-main (3rd but 2 ahead bumped. If 2nd place would have been caught jumping the boards he Mark would have bumped. Raw deal for Mark)
Tony Hopcraft 5th expert f-main truggy
Me 1st b-main buggy open (3rd, but 2 ahead bumped), had qualifier issues and qualified in d-main truggy open and bumped all the way to the a-main 6th.

Sorry to jump your thread boys.

To get back on topic. That really sucks about the Deans. When soldering deans its best to attach the male and female connectors together while tinning/soldering to help with the heat so the plastic wont melt and loosen the metal out of the plastic.
As far bullet connectors go, they are good, but they get wore out over time, so if they start feeling easy to unplug it may be time to replace them.

Cant edit my post...
Ben Wheeler actually was in buggy expert b-main 10th place and not truggy. Also was in a-main elec buggy 15th place, but ran the race front wheel drive.

Also Willy was offered $100 to streak across the track, he thought about it for a sec, but chickened out. I think if we get more guys in T-Burg to pitch in he would do it. :GRIN:

Forgot to say thanks to my pit man (Eric Grinyer expert buggy f-main 2nd after 2 bumps) that helped me with all my bumps. Im sure if you were there for the a-main instead of twiddle dee and twiddle dumb, i would have gotten better results. You know what they say, races are won in the pits. These guys forgot about me, and i blew them off when they called me in for a pit. Luckily no flame outs.
