Thanks.... actually it DOES run really well... but I need to get it to SoCal to see how it runs on a tighter track... at Sun Valley it kicks butt... but that track is HUGE...

i don't think you have to worry about discharge. 4200maH don't hold a memory so when it slows down I think all you have to do is recharge-but not more than 2x per day

I've got a Swift. Yesterday race, it started "chattering" everytime I turned left ... then later in the day, it chattered both ways (left was a high speed corner). It wasn't rubbing on the body ... body wasn't dragging. Any thoughts on what it could be? It appeared to be "wheel hop". THanks

What do you mean 'drop out'? We have no trouble with the original equip servo saver. Are you sure you have the correct spline insert on?

It's almost certainly rear wheel hop and is quite common. Can be fixed in a number of ways. Ride height adjustment, rear springs and/or tyres.

I ordered in some of the Spice Dish-rims.
They are all crooked and warped

Big dissapointment.
Inserts look nice though.

Anyone else have similar experiences with the Spice rims?
