Looks like you have a naked Spektrum in there. Motorman says this receiver is very susceptible to problems from fuel saturation. For those of you in Rio Linda; if it gets wet with fuel it will be FUBAR. Wrap it with a latex product, I got a bag of balloons at CVS for 99 cents!

Yeah i saw they were talking about that on the g4s thread. I will do it soon. As for a engine i bought it today. RB V.12 5 Port with TM K6001 pipe. What do you guys think about that setup? I think this setup is gonna make a lot of people but make me

You might have a faster car but doesnt mean you will be faster around the track.
