    Funniest RC Moment
    At the 2006 Off-Road Truck Fuel Nationals, I went and ran 1/10 Gas Truck for the first time at a big race. After bumping out of the C-Main, I was DQ'd for fuel capacity (even though I preteched). Needless to say, I was very dissappointed and frustrated when my friend Ryan Phillips came up and dubbed my "Frank, the Illegal Tank", which did nothing but put a smile on my face. The name still floats around from time to time.

    Battery Box is 156 x 53mm. You can run a 4s, or 2x 2S packs (shorty or long) side by side. I know the guys prefer the shorty packs when running indoors. Outdoors where run time is needed, they have been running 2x 2S full size packs, or a 4S pack depending on what batteries they have.

    Hi, I just got the 8ight 3.0e, and I was wondering if you knew the inside LxW of the battery box? Also do run 2 2s packs, or 1 4s assuming you don't run 6s w a low Kv. With all the loot I laid out I'd love to be able to grab 2 turnigy packs to start, but the length is like 167mm. I have a few 5.0 20-30c 2s from them for my SCTE, and RC8.2e. I must say they work well for me. I hit the track, but I don't race yet. So with all those questions can you give me some input on what works for you? Thanks much Ryan
