No thanks, I really don't need your little picture
and my PC works juuuuuust fine with the internet sparky!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone else did comment that they took a while to download...that was the difficulty to which I was reffering to earlier...nothing more
Another racer asks after me for the part numbers but you didn't respond to his question in the same fashion....hmmmmmmm....anyway

I did see your comment about them being Xray parts ....thanks

Very nice
You've speant some serious time cleaning that up its about time I did the same to mine, just need to get myself a workspace organised here the dining table is no longer feasable

Isn't it a little tricky getting the motor out with the fan there? looks like you need to remove the top deck

Nice looking ride and very tidy wiring too m8

I looked at the triox too before i got the R3 it's a very nice looking kit........ I like the red

was the motor heatsink with it or can i ask were you got it and can i have one in blue

how do you get on with that servo ??
It's so small which would help alot in my car if it works well to ??

You can get the heatsink in blue even easier than getting one in any other colour I have one on my Cuda, when the gearing allows....
It's packaged by Fastrax in the UK, in blue. I like it because it doesn't cover the motor vents

I've had no problems with my 9550 servo, it simply sits there doing it's job, with enough speed and torque for a tourer. It's a good job it's digital, otherwise it would go up in smoke with m 3PK HRS

It's about time I got my servo leads shortened, I hate having them so long you dont know what to do with them yet I don't like the idea of chopping them so short I may need extensions in the future if I want to move to another car. Especially since it would be impossible to replace them on the Cirrus speedo

Don't know about that servo ............. futaba 9550

If the figures tell all the story it's about 1/3 slower than the KO i use now ...............

Dose it feel that dead when you use it or dose it feel more responsive like the KO's etc. with the faster, higher torque firgures

1/3 slower seems like alot to me !! but then i've seen a few people do use them so i guess it's not the issue it looks on the face of it ?!?!?!?!?!

yes, it's tricky, but i dont have to remove the topdeck.

the futaba 9550 works very well, just like hermi said, it has enoug tourque and speed for a touringcar..

If you use the 9550 servo ,you can put 2 cells on the other side.
which in my car gave an almost perfect 50:50 left /right weight distribution . By putting the speedo at the back over the rearmost cell hole i managed to get enough space that i could move the 4 cells forward or backward for front/rear weight distribution(like the tc3)
