I am back...

yeah yeah yeah... i know, i missed me too...

i have been meaning to start back writing some time now, but i have not really put out the time, but i
have found some and i have decided tonight is the night.
First we have a name change, TriniTech has been renamed KesTech, as some of the stuff i plan to talk about, will not only be about computers. Added to the list will be a new "sport" i am into, RC Racing...

I picked up two Short Course trucks from Traxxas. "Short course off road racing is a form of auto racing involving the racing of modified vehicles on a dirt road closed course of a short length (tens of kilometers / miles or less). It is distinct from long course desert racing such as the Baja 1000, which consists of racing at least hundreds of kilometers / miles over a quasi linear (non-closed) course from one point to another" taking from wikipedia. This Radio Controlled trucks are 1:10 scale of what these 900HP dirt trucks are, plus they are fully upgradable, from tires to suspension to body to motors. it is all up to you to see how far you what to take it.
