And back to our regular schedule. I still have not received my new motor, but it should be here by Friday. Did not work on the Losi over the weekend and I have exhausted my hobby fund for this month. I will be getting some modelling supplies for my custom hot wheels next month and hopefully some new tires for the Losi. Also an interesting question: why are there not any 42mm heatsinks easily available around? I have a 4274 motor on the losi and I want to get a fan for it but I only find dodgy stuff from china and a hobbywing heatsink/fan combo that has a 44mm diameter. It could be that fits, so maybe I will give it a go. There is also this, but I am not sure about it: CC Blower Fan Shroud for 15XX Motors

Do you guys have any recommendations?

Maybe just use the castle one? I think the finned castle motors are 41.4 mm.

If your motor is 40mm in between cooling fins I think it should work.

Getting frustrated with Protoform website again. Can’t login, can’t get forgotten password or user name because it can’t find my email address. Yet when I try to open new account it tells me email address already used. 3 time this had happened. See if Customer service actually responds this time.

That's why I use password that's impossible to forget. I used a random password in the past for my cable provider and I still can't log in. If I click forgot password the email never arrives.

every other place I just use my name for ďuserĒ. When I set up the account with Protoform, they wouldnít allow it. Ever since then had nothing but problems trying to login. Itís not a need. Week or two new body should be available from the usual places. Probably eBay first. Iíll just wait. Unless Customer service actually responds, which I donít expect them too.

This. Make up a pattern of keys on the keyboard. When you need a new password, move the pattern to another spot on the keyboard.

I'm repairing "rare, vintage" mp3 players. Got three of them for about $20. I should be able to get two up and running, one to keep and the other to sell.

So I'm not the only one!
Not a current pic. Sadly it needs help now.



When Tamiya released it a few years back I had to get it.



And speaking of fighters...
