come on buddy, are you saying that every modification you have ever done is purely performance based?

So you paint your shell white and have never used a sticker/decal??

With a name like Wildcat I highly doubt it!!

I have a couple stickers on my car, and they are needed. But I try to avoid aluminum wing mounts. They tend to stress the rear tower more and add weight up high. To each their own. I try to put upgrades on my car that address weight (less), durability or performance. The least useless item on my car is the chassis protector. But, I just like to keep dirt out of my screws and my chassis looking nice.

I don't like the idea of the aluminum wing mounts either. But I prefer securing the wing with screws and those beveled washers. Since I remove the wing quite a bit it would be nice to have a plastic mount that has metal inserts to screw into.

They are not just bling, here is my logic:

- Air-planes made from 7075-T6 aluminum are super fast
- Wing mounts are made from air-plane grade aluminum 7075-T6
- You dont see too many plastic planes flying around do you?

I rest my case

Okay just pre-ordered the B5M Factory Lite kit tonight. Getting back into R/C racing after 8 years absence.

I have a never used B44 also I built in 2010 when I was intending to get back into it then. I will wait for the B54 which I believe they should call it that will come after the B44.3. Not worth upgrading really in any way, just run that one as it is.

There is a nice little indoor track in Niagara Falls, NY that I checked out last week and I need to tinker with a hobby again.
