Yes, I don't use diode ..... I don't use brake.

Not correct im afraid. You need to run capacitors, diodes etc not to get any advantage but to make sure that it doesnt damage the electrics!!!

Motor capacitor : yes
Power capacitor : up to you
Schottky Diode : depends on your driving style, if you use brake, definetely is beneficial to esc ( cooler brake FET operation ).

Hi,

I'm using the Excel delrin diff outdrives. They are working really well.
I'd like to have aluminium outdrives but there is no manufacturer who makes some.
Perhaps a new project?

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

in my opinion they are not precise enough and wear out too fast.

Cheers

Does anyone know where I can get the "Team Bomber" drive belts? Speedtech seems to be out of stock and I can't find anyone else that stocks them.

Hi,

@caveman: Yes, you're right. They are not expensive but I don't like it to have to replace a part more often then necessary. I would call it "perfectionism".
As long as I find parts on the car I don't like or which don't suite my sence of "perfection" I will try to fix them and to improve those parts.

@ZeroCooL: Have you tried Champ R/C?

Cheers
Chris
