Too stupid ? IB has been sending rubbish to everyone for 12 months. Now everyone screamed at once. IB wasn't too smart.

cannon..exactly my point. They know their next cell is going to be scrutinized very closely. No mistakes can be tolerated. Now that they are here, they want the same constructive information, testing, suggesting, that we gave to panasonic when we reperesented them. If we see a problem beginning to develop, hopefully we can stop it before it becomes as dramatic as the last issues.

I am very happy to announce that IB has signed as a Major Sponsor of the Snowbird Nationals! Their support means a lot, and their interest in RC and the Snowbirds is very, very appreciated!

I Had enough with trinity, k factory, mismatched brush and spring packages, AND OVERPRICED batterys to last a lifetime.....

Not to mention brush cutters, battery dischargers and and overall low quality Customer service......


Do I even have to mention their nitro engine support from a few years back?.....

please.....

Go old school. Everybody gets 4 sets of purple's and plaid's.
Or better yet...rubber tires only.
