The MMR fan sold by Nexus Racing are a definite improvement. You can feel and hear the difference in the fans once you install them.


STLN...can you post your pics of the EC again? I just want to compare how you set it up....thanks.

If the ESC doesn't overheat, do I need a fan on it? I've been going fanless with the 13.5 without any trouble so far. Is there a performance advantage to having the fan on there?

Hi,

How does the 13.5r compare to the newer Co27 stock motors? Our local race organizer assured me that he will let me run the GTB stock motor equivalent when it arrives here in Manila but I need some feedback.

Does it run competitively? Does it have to much advantage in terms of top end, because if it does, other racers may protest and kick me out of the race . on the other hand, the CO27 motors here are really fast that I might find myself eating dust.

Thanks.

That's weird. We got three of those new heatsinks this month, and they all came with those crappy 7.2V fans! The MMR fan used to be a good upgrade!

Hi all,

Does any only compare the new rotor and old rotor in 4.5R? Does it cure the easy overheat problem?
Thanks!

I have bolted a 3.5r into my RDX for this weekend, will report back on Monday regarding its performance vs the 4.5r. Can't wait to test it out!

Hi all,

Does anybody hit the problem on GTB like this. After completed the neutral point setting, it starts to more forward when decreasing the EPA in the brake range, say 80% of the original range. Is it normal? What I would like to do is to reduce the max brake power. I finally using the Digital Trim function to do so. But I am not sure it is the right way and I am not know the reason behide?

Thanks a mill!
