I have actually been told the black one does a better job. And seeing that most of the AE Guys down at snowbirds ran the black one must mean that it is good

I have drilled holes in my blue clipon heatsink in line with the vents in the can and it definitely runs cooler with the heatsink

protc3, that looks awesome!!!

One thing that I wished AE did was used the same positioning for the body posts that are on the electric as the nitro car. This way everything would have lined up and you could have had a more secure system. I do like protc3 setup though!

Ok, I understand that the radial heat sink (that clips directly on the motor) would actually increase heat because it blocks the vents, so I dont plan to use that. I have the Team kit, and it has the standard small black heatsink attached on the motor mount, would the FT motor mount (the larger blue one) provide better cooling, or is it even noticeable ?
I took a black one, and cut off all the "fins", and left a light weight alumimium motor clamp...

I hope that the new Mazda 6 body will handle better than the "other" Alfa body that is soooooooo great here at SoCal...

I have the IRS spur adapter and it wobbles a lot.
it does straighten(or flatten) out after the motor spins faster.
is that normal?

Default hex hubs

i think AE makes the alluminum hexes. i've got a set and they are hex on the wheel side and taper to round, probably to lower rotating mass. anyhow, they do make the drivetrain less slopfull. the're not expensive. i'm 95% sure they're assosiated, but i don't see them on the tc3 parts list. my LHS had them once. maybe ask assosiated.

IRS aluminium spur adapter?
If that is the case, then slight wobble is ok, but when it wobbles so much that the spur strips/slips then that is not good. The same goes for the plastic one. Another thing to add, make sure that the berring cap(in front of the spur gear) is tightened, so that the spur will have less wobble. And depending on what spur gear you are using, it might have wobble itself.
