Default Fine Design RC Brushless LiPO Nitro's

I was reading the september issue of Radio Control Car Action and they had a review of Fine Design's crazy brushless and lipo conversion for the LST, looked absolutely amazing, then I looked up fine design and got there website, they have a ton of nitro conversion's with brushless and lipo, I have seen their eighth scale buggy reviewed before too, clocked it at 52mph, as for the LST, it was about 40mph. Check it out, pretty cool, and very expensive.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY!

He uses bad materials (brushless motors and controllers) that overheat and sometimes ruin the car/truck that it is in. Chris Fine is a crook, and uses boat mounts for the motor mounts in his BL 1/8th buggy. THis guy is total rip-off, his stuff is crap and doesn't work. His conversions may seem cool, but they are cheap...cheap...cheap... .

Plus, real brushless conversions are made, not bought. Check Dabid_Van's BL OFNA and MetalMan's BL xterminator on www.ultimaterc.com for some real conversions. And find Cold_Fusion, he makes REAL motor mounts.

hmmm well thats no good. wonder why car action would test his stuff. It sure looks like a cool conversion, and when I saw it I loved it because I have always thought of an electric LST, but I would never buy that, not worth the money at all. I would want to go through the process of designing and machining the pieces anyway, couldn't be too hard. Now I just need the money...

Contact Cold-Fusion.

He makes a lot of 1/8th scale mounts. He usually floats around TRCZ....but he's hard to find and contact.

But definately the best mounts.
