will the x-12s have a 10.5? 13.5? or are we still limited to the x-11 stock specs?

Eventually they will be, but for now the X11 stock specs are the only option. Becasue they are working so well and are fairly new, I would not expect the stock spec X12s unbtil late in '09.

OK so after some delays the 35C batteries are shipping today, tomorrow, and next week if they don't all go out before Christmas.

Hey guys, sorry for asking this here, but hopefully it'll get back to the right people.

I have an LRP TC Spec I received back from non-warranty service a few months ago. I only used it a little bit (it's my backup) and it's been fine. However, when mounting it for use recently, the heatsink just kinda fell off. Is there a way to reattach it? It looks like it was attached with some kind of really sticky thermal paste?

Here's what I use works fine and is thin enough to let heat through it. Other wise a very thin servo tape will work.

Thanks Anthony, I might give that a shot. I see that there are "thermal adhesives" out there, but it's not clear if that's the right solution.

It sounds like thin adhesive thermal tape is all you really need. It's available a million different places online for cheap, and probably at most computer stores as well.

Here's an example: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/akthadtaak80.html

Tested the tape I linked above. It held the heat sink on great, and heat transfer worked like a charm.

Rick,

Any idea on the status of spx speed controls...really hard to get a hold of from any distributers.

Are replacement rotors available for stock spec motors?

Having some hp issues and wondering is the speedo is giving up or if it is the motor.

Thanks
Jamie

The ESCs are coming in and going out as fast as we can get them. We just sent some more last week.

Rotors are available but not in stock.
