Default Air flow holes in body

Will putting the holes in the windshield and by the rear bumper help cool off the electronics?
Also what about the back 2 big fan holes.

If this or any other mods to the body will help airflow please let me know

Thanks

A fan on the actual electronics is the way to go, the holes in the body are not for cooling air flow but for anti-parachuting. The SC bodies allow more than enough air flow, trying to drill more holes doesn't help. Drop a fan on your motor.

Does anyone know what would cause a car to sometimes stutter on full throttle? Im thinking its my reciever that cant handle the power that my motor is asking for. It seems that my car will stutter the most with a fully charged battery and then gets better as i put more time on my battery..?? (by stutter i mean that when i have the car at full throttle it cuts out sometimes)

Most likely a bad solder joint or plug loose iMO. Only other common would be a driveline issue but it wouldn't change through the pack if it were a drive line issue.

I agree its hard to break something. but everything does wear fast I guess its the same with my 1/8th scale...

so far 1 novak 4.5 done quit
pins done/ (replaced with chris pins)
Rear Diff worn out....
Rear drive cups pretty worn estimate 30-40 more packs before they are totally shot..

I have between 50-65 packs threw the losi so not bad I guess....

That would be the mmp shutter. try an external BEC. if it still does it. buy an rx8 esc.

The part on the top side of the chassis where the front brace bolts to top of steering posts,seems kinda weak considering my front brace is Alum and it is plastic... jus wondering if this part should be stronger or is there a reason its plastic?May have to barge the family machine shop and 3-d one up.It is not flat like the Jammy but it could be done,question is should it be done? Anyone?
