And it's so cute....
Antoniop- Do you have a link to the German online store.... USD100 is cheap! Thks.

copper would be better and able to tolorate high temp.

in general, high silver loaded soldering wire is for audio mainly

Not too many problem with parts right now in HK. The thing is very durable so you won't need much anyway. You'll probably have more problems with getting bits for the OVA than Xray! Price of the Xray will probably be cheaper than the TB evo2 if you deduct the tools (which you can sell!)

I've heard bad things about both...... but if you must then the GM V12 is better value for money. I just have the WC version, I was pretty disappointed in that so I certainly would not buy the XC. They are practically giving away the V12WC in HK- HK$650!!!

In that case you're choice is very limited!

The Xray would be the best European car I have, the SV10II would be the best Japanese car I have, the RC12L3 would be the best American car I have (sorry TC3!! ). As for the best of the best...... that depends on the mood I'm in!

So, did you have anything happen to your V12WC??

the only reason why i want to buy them is that they are small, better than my Cyclone...too big.

I fried my V12 brakes when I put the batteries in the wrong way..... one of the problems with banana plugs!! Got it repair........... 9 months later!!!

However, the friends I run with have all burn out V12s. One went up in smoke (the case melted!!), One just died and one V12 became a V4 when about 8 of the FETs decided to desolder itself from the main board (apparently this is not an uncommon problem in hot countries!). All the failures occurred whilst running the cars!
