Oh dang, and here I though with the ex10, vfs1 & 2343 I'd have everything I need to make the car go on it's own

1) Pulse Stretch

it's sort of sad to see Losi go away from a true sealed drive train. STLNLST never had to replace the belts on that car. You ready to put all of that Ko stuff to the test on the rug? I have my radio back from Mike Byrd so I'm ready for some action.

Yea ...I'm keeping my XXX-S even after that for a "play around car" (assuming the JRXS works that is ) ...it's one of the "staples" of family reunions, throw a 7 turn in the losi and watch the nieces and nephews go crazy trying to chase the car up and down the filthy gravel riddled street ....try that with an open drive train car :|

are you getting the speedmind bag to put your radio in? It looks cool but it's HUGE.

I bought the Team Magic Transmitter bag it fits perfect with the wheel drop down/ext. It is almost identical to the KO bag for the EX-10.

The speedmind bag is the ish...

Eventhough it's big and bulky, but gives superb protection.... man, I sound like a condom commercial! Anyway, the bag actually fits in one of the drawer in my Mugen hauler bag.

What KO needs to make is an aluminum case like the Airtronics and JR.

Yeah, KO can't go on with producing something else than aluminum cases!
KO might be described a THE radio manufacturer, so why not something supreme like aluminium.........

1) Pulse Stretch - setting type of the servo. 1. Analog setting 2. In-between Analog/Digital 3. Digital setting.

2) Protection Timer - Set the timer to power down the servo if the linkage becomes locked or overloaded. This is to prevent damage to the FETs and motor from an overload.

We have looked into making another hard type of case but, it is way to expensive. The aluminum type was to heavy and we couldn't compete with pricing from items coming from China. I looked into a carbonfiber version, lighter, but once again even more expensive. I am still looking for a manufacture to give better pricing.
