    I thought the 230 was a nice charger where it was able to do both NiMH and LiPo and now with the 235 having built in balancer it makes it a great charger for any one looking to go LiPo without spending over $100 on a charger. Now only if Duratrax had a upgrade program so I could trade in my 230 for that new 235. Laughing

    The new 235 had a usb port for software upgrades ,but the 230 doesn't have the usb port so at this point there is no upgrading it.

    getting ready for the dirt?

    I didn't mean upgrade the software on the 230 I mean upgrade the entire charger. Kinda like how Futaba has their trade up program where you send in your old transmitter and get a certificate to use for upgrading to a new transmitter.

    You never know what Duratrax may offer,at this time there is no report of any offers in the future.

    The plan for the track is to keep the same lay out as the end of last season.I will be adding some jumps/bumps in that inner section .Nothing drastic just enough to make it different.Not sure if the banked corner will stay or be flatten out.This year should be able to get a early start than last year.I am not worried about putting down a new surface like last year.I still will be adding more clay/soil mix as the season goes on.I am already getting calls and emails on a start date ,i tell them late April if the snow is gone,early May.

    Looks like 2wd buggy will be the new class for the season.There is interest in 4wd buggy too,but there are already enough 2wd buggies to easily make a class or two right off. .And with the additions of Associated,losi and Team Durango the 4wd SCt class should be interesting.

    Say Hi to dad for me and see you guys soon! Twisted Evil

    Good I really liked that layout at the end and I'm glad it will be basically the same. I think that you should keep that bank at the end though. It makes it so you can keep a little more speed through the corner and into the straight. Smile
