Yep, no problems at the track. Car switched on and as before sometimes went to full power for a second or two and sometimes nothing. But after that it was as normal. No glitching, no other problems. So I just got used to it and ran it.

Still seems strange to me but as long as it's not affecting your on track performance I suppose that's ok.

Hi Steve

fatbear - Re-bind your receiver and add a little brake into the fail safe mode. This should eliminate the uncontrolled throttle application while the module and receiver find each other.

It is not advisable... the 4 cell GTB is really only intended for use with 4 cells NiMH ... which is about 6 V total.

Aid,

Honestly most of your settings will probably stay the same. Your gearing will have to go up though... usually I would gear up 2 teeth on the pinion when changing from 6 to 5 cells in mod... you may have to gear up even more for 10.5.

The only setting that you might want to play with would be your minimum drive... you can turn that up from 1% to suit your preference to give you a little more bottom end response.

If you would like another fan sent to you you can PM me your address and I can try to have one sent to you.
Received the replacement fans, thanks Steve!

Could you give me some information regarding the 13mm rotor, like what it does different, gear ratios etc?
