It works great to clean out the slot in the posts.

Yeah, I'm having the most problems with getting solder out the slots right now. I'll head over to my local radio shack and see if they got a solder sucker.

If you're looking to clean the posts use some solder braid, easily found at Radio Shack,etc.

While this may not be "Right" I found that using a compressor and Laying the tip flat on the Heatsink (RX8) and heating the post and giving a shot of air will Splatter all the Old solder with a Nice thin layer left behind.

Hold the esc upside down on top of the soldering iron and it'll flow right down onto your iron. Now, you can put it back on!!! No fancy gizmos needed!

Got a chance to try those suggestions for setup on Monday, settled on 50:10, 5000-16000, 5.3fdr. No more off switch feeling and the car rips. That setup and with the d3 and the car comes off the track about 20*c cooler then it was.

Thanks for the help .

Any idea when this new software we've been hearing about will be available to everyone else?

Hopefully it's been submitted for ROAR approval. Until it's approved we'll still have to run 212.

That has never stopped anyone before...Only would matter at a ROAR Race anyway. They will be running it at Snowbirds and any other race since IIC.
