U guys race with Bill Sydor? I met him at the 04 Snowbirds. Good guy! Tell him I said hello.
Cool, thanks, I'll experiment with that stuff at the next club race.

Yep, we race with Mr. Sydor. He's often the lone brushed motor guy against a pack of roaring 13.5's, and still we have to fight like hell to keep up, often ending in failure. :-) I'll tell him you said hello if he doesn't say it himself first. I'm suspicious he secretly covets a Losi! :-D

I think he has a TC5 and I know a couple of the Corally's coming. I don't see another Losi car in his future ever.

Later,

syndr0me you got that setup on there yet?lol

Glad I could help!!! Now go Get'm!!!!

Do these new arms have a new part number? Thanks...

Does anybody else think that the Lipo tray also makes for a handy parts tray when your tearing the car down? Gotta love the mult-tasking ability.

Thumbs up

Anyone bribed a machinist to make an exact replica of the LiPo tray out of brass or stainless or something heavier yet? There isn't enough room for all of the weight I need to add to it. I keep forgetting to get my dad to program that thing...




Ok, I know I'm late to the party with photos, but it's finally finished and ready for Saturday's race. Now all I need is a clear weather forecast.

Is that the Novak Motor heatsink? How did you get the motor in with that thing on?
