Never. Over 150 runs with no such problem. The battery plate screws pass through the battery plate into a brace in which 4-40 nuts are pressed into the composite material. In the event that the 4-40 nuts do wear out, they can be replaced.

And Mark was putting in those screws while taking liberal doses of cold medicine this past weekend. It he couldn't strip them out then, they should be pretty sound.

And I am STILL taking the cold medicine. Buy stock in P&G because I am taking DayQuil and NightQuil by the quart now.

Thanks to you and the rest of the folks from Norcal. Some great hospitality up there. I can see why MF wont relocate to SoCal.

Yeah, that one sounded just like one of those typical 'new car' rumors.

We had early bed times... ahem...

I think it was that mysterious racer flu that we all got in FL that did me in. I was a week shy of getting that flu shot too!

True or not, I'm sure you aren't the only person hearing stuff like that. The RC industry isn't like...say...the gaming industry, where they give a specific date of release. Its usually like within' a month time frame, like "it'll be out sometime in January" and stuff like that.

Would be nice to be able to circle a date and say, thats when it will reach stores.

The one good thing is that Losi seems to be one of the more reliable companies at releasing stuff when they say they will.

Jim,

A great percentage of competition level cars are now using cooling as a means to create better motor and esc drive efficiency. Although the fans have been used, they are not required.

Other competitive brands are also releasing fan duct options to aid in car performance.

Thank you . I was wondering the use of fans or if it was just a cooling issue.

I now understand..thanks again
