I don't quite understand.

If your money is stronger, how come it takes more of it to buy the same thing? I never got to take economics so it's all new to me.


How much does someone working in a fast food restaurant (like mcdonald's, I think you guys have those?) make an hour? How much is taken out for taxes or whatever they're called there?

Hi. I raced in San D a few years ago back in the Navel base. That was a cool club with Krazy Kev. I had family from Chula vista, down on H street. I love over there dood.

Haha very strange coincidence. I was born in Chula Vista. Krazy Kevin's is still there, a very good hobby store now, great stock. Kevin's still a bit of an ass, though.

It doesn't. Basically it's all relative. Say a RC car costs a week wages in the US, it costs a week wages in the UK also. It's just it's just it seems to cost more, but then we are paid more etc so overall in terms of wealth, as nations we are pretty equal. It's just the UK economy is quite strong at the moment as it seems less likely to crash then the US, and if so not on such a big scale, so international companies are storing money in UK banks. Hope that makes some kind of sense. Basically it means, UK having a strong economy makes it cheap for us to buy abroad, like from the USA.

As for McDonalds, for the lowest ranked employees it would range from minimum wage (£5.60 - $11.20) to around £8.50/$17 an hour in cities.

Makes complete sense, Glypo. Thanks for explaining. Here we'd make about $7.75 an hour at McDonald's but you only get to take home about $5 because the government steals the rest.

Quite the same here, but there is a much better health system

Although housing and oil/petrol are not relative to our wages, some of the neccessities of life.

The uk is actually the cheapest place in the world to refine oil, but probably the most expensive to purchase it. Me thinks were getting shafted.

Good thing you all race electric, then!

Well we don't even have a health system, so yours is leaps and bounds beyond ours!




So is the CAT going to be a stick pack car? I'm sick of saddle packs, not because I have a thing for stick packs (I actually prefer saddle packs), but because in the U.S. they let us run LiPo and all my LiPos are sticks. Or I'm going to have to sell all my sticks and get Trakpower LiPos and figure out how to mount a saddle pack in my Mi-3...

It's going to be a 4-2 NiMH pack split as standard, although a chassis plate will be available (as an extra) that supports LiPo and moves the LiPo to get a good balance just like the 4-2 split cells. Or at least that's what we have been told.

The design is kinda Volvoish / boxy, but the engineering is very clever indeed! I like it when engineers think for themselves, there are way too many factories just copying successful designs!

Will be interesting to see how it handles!

Open gears is never ideal, but as well as the body is well closed I guess it should be no biggie...
