This new power cube is better than the old cause they're labeled now. Even if they're all 1.15's, a cube of these is cheaper than 3 individual packs of 1.15's. Generally the old power cubes are 1.145 to 1.160's

come on!!!! just put new wires on it, do you realy want to strugle at the track because you wont change the wire.

OK Chris. It wasn't that difficult. I just have to use needle nose to hold the wires insted of using my fingers. And I had to cut one of the wire ties to let the wire reach. Problem fixed. I did like the motor. It spooled up a little slower at first than I'd like it to for off road but once it got up there it had some good top end. It was very smooth and I ran four runs before we got rained out and the brushes still had serrations and the comm looked very clean. It was spooling up quicker as the brushes broke in more and more. I think one or two more runs and it would have been at it's best.

That is a very smooth motor, I went to the on-road 8x1, and it just had a TON of power. Wish I could have gotten away with running the 11 turn at SoCal, but I was just in the way down the straight.

Hey Fuku brethren. I had a great day at the track today for one of our clubs special Saturday races. My trusty TC3 wasnt so cooperative through the qualifiers. But in the A-main all balance was restored and me and my Fukuyama pack ripped our way to a 2nd place finish. Not too bad I think for being my 8th week only with a touring car. So batteries are supposed to fade off at the end of the race huh. Not mine, at the end of a 5 min main they were just getting warmed up. THANKS ALOT for helping me look like I know what Im doing.

Speedie knows RIP!!! Yahoo.....
