Had to go into the board preferences to set my time zone to Amerika/Kentucky/Louisville to get it to start displaying correctly. It was defaulting for an hour ahead of actual time.

I see why I sold out of all my new sets I had at $399

Re: FS: XR4Ti race car, tube frame all Carbon fiber body, $12000.00

Power to weight ratio is an appropriate 6.66

A BARGAIN FOR $12k

I would say GLWS good luck with the sale, but no luck is needed for this one. I doubt it will be for sale very long.

Re: Apparently Im stupid.

Sooner or later XR guys end up adding a Scorpio to the stable. Totally normal (to us, at least).
