ok, I am sure a fanboy will chime in, but my tekins always ran hotter than most brands. And they always felt less powerful. So less power and more heat, mean I sold them. I run reedy's mainly these days. I want to try the hacker, because many locals seem to think its godly...and my daughter likes purple, lol (for her car)

Sensor wire clip tip! This looks like it's gonna work out great, just find a piece of lexan with a 90 degree bend.
You can also hide the sensor completely by going with a flat one and routing it through the chassis tunnel...

Very clean looking. How long of a sensor wire?

Personally, I didnt like that. Dirt would work its way into the channel and the battery would rub it into the wires and cause them to go bad.....outdoor racing of course.

Gorilla or PTFE tape over the sensor wire should cure that.

I dunno, the rock in that dirt are magical. I dont even know how they get into the places they do. lol. I only race indoors these days, and it is no longer an issue. I was just giving an example of a past issue.

IMO, many people are either WAY over thinking this car. Mostly the stock guys.

If you're periodically checking it, there really shouldn't be an issue. Don't you inspect your cars closely while in the pits? I often find issues doing the occasional visual inspection of parts/chassis/components etc. Even chassis protector film could be used to avoid abrasion from the battery.

probably not with some users (no names) posting about set ups for months about cars they don't even own

Or posting testing unrealistic testing results(no names again), they have real teammates and engineers. Thats where they go for information

Yeah, I do. But I have a bad habit of charging and storing my packs in the cars...I hate thumb screws, lol. But yeah, I go over my cars and try to clean them up between rounds. I only run 1 class, so it keeps me from getting bored.
