Well, recovery from my injuries seems to be taking forever... but I am at least able to walk short distances with a crutch, I still can't use my left arm much but rehab for that should finally start next week.

So I am optimistic I will be functional by January - I'll just have to bribe my wife to corner-marshal for me! :)

I have an RC10T that I am going to be adding a 17.5 brushless system to. What is a good starting point for gear ratio with the 17.5 motor?

Only a couple weeks away! Can’t wait to see you guys at the race. This year we’re trying the 21.5 heritage class which should be interesting. Looks like quite a few people are giving that a shot. Also adding awards for concours. I’ll try to take more photos this year

He can elaborate but basically crashed on a scooter, busted leg and shoulder.

Poor bugger, left arm is for throttle so he only needs to use his finger :mrgreen:

It happened awhile back. He missed the Vonats in September because of it. But it sounds like he's healing up and should be making the trip.

Howdy!
Yes I am planning to make it to NC in a couple weeks!


Yeah, I wrecked on one of those stand-up electric scooters - was going about 30mph and slammed down hard...
- Severe injuries to left shoulder (shattered humeral head) and left knee (Broken tibial plateau and fibula).
- It has been a long road to recovery and I still have a long way to go.

And yes! I can drive an R/C car (I drove an Arrma Typhon in the street the other day), left trigger finger works fine, and right arm is un-scathed!

Glad to hear you’re on the mend, Dan. Can’t wait to see you, we missed you at VONATs
