You're absolutely right about the alu being like chedder cheese

How's your engine coming along?
I had no problems with those. But I guess that stuff comes in bad and in worse batches.
The problem is you don't know if you have a bad part until you break it.

I installed the carrying handle in the alu mounts, and then went to tighten the small grubscrews... twist... strip...
The alum. has the strength of lightweight cheddar cheese.
I rest my case

And how do you like yours?

I'm hoping the weather is going to play ok tomorrow - I'll go to the track anyway and do the first few WOT tanks with the car off the track.

damn dude thats nice I wouldn't have the guts to open up an engine that is this expensive props man

I also heard that JP engines dont last very long maybe 2 gallons of fuel through them then they need to be rebuilt due to the fact that they are full bred racing engines
