I like to help start working on the Pracing car and I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in starting hopefully this week  I can be up at the lab anyday after the 3rd.

I'll try and lock down some time. In the mean time, there are three new motors from Skycraft you are free to use.

Ted, thanks for grabbing some motors.  Just wanted to remind everyone to save all of your receipts so we can prove the cost of the car meets the requirements.

And so that we can properly reimburse...

Also, once there agreement on parts - if someone wants the lab to pay directly instead of having to purchase and do a reimbursement, I can make that happen.

I picked up today for free "free is good" 2 12v 33ah sealed batteries they are both good and have 2012 date codes.  They also have battery cases perfect for the car.  I'll be up at the lab  friday and saturday to start on the car if anyone cares to join that would be great

To All Power Racing Series Builders!

Saturday, April 7 I will be at the lab and really want to build momentum from where others have started it going!  Let's get this FamiCar built!
This will be a planning and strategy gathering where we can see all the parts we have and figure out parts we need.


I offer to supply metal.  I'll bring what I have in my garage.
Bring anything you think we can use!

I can be there Saturday night! Let me know if there's anything my unskilled labor can be used for. :)

Tony stopped by the lab tonight and worked his ass off on the pink racer, so kudos! He stole the 24v motor from the electric bike and was trying to retrofit it. He made great progress :D
