Well I'm about to get the Losi 5ive-t and can't wait.
I'll put a pipe on it as soon as they're available, really wakes up those engines!

My biggest problem is when I get some practice and do good during race I don't get back to track for awhile. I can't make it every weekend, and it shows at times. I just do what I do.
As long as you're having fun! Some of it for me is the comradarie at the track.

I would agree that they look like they are lumber some, but they really look just like the TORC racing. That's part of the appeal as well as not really having to tune it and just run the living tar out of it! I wouldn't give up 1/8th for it, but I think would be cool now and then.

Ah I see there is an upper and lower section in the box...very nice...but is there enough room in the upper section for receivers that have the plugs that face up and down?

How much will they be?

The room is quite small... You would halfto have a horizontal plug in type of receiver to make it work... I am currently working on a new box that works with a "normal sized" receiver that plugs in vertically... Only drawback is that the battery would halfto be smaller... I like my 2400mah/7.4v Lipo battery so i found a receiver that works... I can spec out my set up if anybody is interested...

The aluminum acts like a heat sink drawing away any heat generated from battery or receiver.. I ran ten consecutive tanks in a row and there no heat at all coming out of the box...

I have e-mailed several people pricing for all these parts i have shown here and in my other posts... For the box it would be $110.00 for either current design or the next design that allows for a more standard receiver.

Hey everyone, Does anyone know where i can get alloy Rear Gearbox Holder Set. Like these but cheaper?
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...box-Holder-Set
If someone knows where cheaper ones of them are can you please tell me, They dont have to be Fioroni brand, I just want alloy ones instead of plastic that splits overtime. If someone could help me out that would be awesome. Thanks
