Default LRP sphere comp tc spec

I recently noticed my fan on the speed controller becoming loose. I try to tighten down the screws and they wont tighten almost like the threads on the aluminum heatsink are stripped?? Any ideas?

for outdoor season I will. How do you take the fan off? I see you cant unplug the fan because the wires run into the casing of the speed control

You can pinch the fins on the heatsink together and the screw will grab like new...

I either use some loctite in there. Or shoe goo it on

The only way that fan will come off, is if you take the case off, and separate the boards. I have done it, and wouldnt recommend it Def screws over the warranty!

mode 4 which is yellow red leds. (automatic brake)

You have 0-1-2-3-4-5-6
0 = none
1 = min.
6 = max

This is a Shere comp and TC spec thing
Should be some where in your manual.
The only thing that the TC spec has is a specific Touring Car Punch Control

Good luck

The best fix I have found is to use 5-40 screws instead of the included 4-40 screws and enlarge the holes on the fan frame a little. Shouldn't loosen up again.
