Rocket Racer, What radio are you using? Check the setting on your controller, check all your trim adjustments and your throttle throw, put your throttle throw at it's max setting... Take Care Rocket Racer and Good Luck...

i run the Hitec CRX Radio. i have put all the EPA's to max as per setting sheet instructions.

rampal stated that the led's staying on solid indicates drag brake being active.

you are right, i think if it runs fine i shouldn't worry. thanks for the response.

Hey Rocket Racer, I'm glad that I can help, The truth about me is that I use too work in a hobby shop for the last 5 1/2 years, Due too high rents in the city my boss closed shop in N.Y. in Dec. 06 and he left his store open in N.J. the commute was too much for me so I am a stay at home dad for now, but I'm still an R/C Tech, that doesn't change I'm here for you guy's and I'm willing to help anyone that need's it. Take Care...

As for the Novak GTB there shouldn't be a over heating problem it comes with a fan installed, I haven't heard of anyone burning up a GTB the fan keeps it cool enough and if anyone has burned one up it's probably because the car was over geared or under geared...

Hey Bx pitbull don't post pics of your PRO4 unless you clean it first no one wants to see a dirty PRO4. You do too much racing and not enough cleaning to your car...

That sucks that your car is wrecked, Speak to Bx Pitbull he had a similar problem with his diffs and he fixed them. He also has a guy that machines parts for him. It's best to speak with him he has the hook up... Good Luck...
