Not so sure about that. One racer at the USTC race this past weekend had to buy a second kit to get parts for his Pro 4!

Pro4 part should be readily available very soon... the car is still new...so the canoe with the parts hasn't made it to the US yet...

Good luck randy...you're in a pickle Maybe you should just race a Tmaxx off road.
No pickle for me... I'm back in the Losi camp.

I got to test out one of the Fukuyama Monster motors this past week. Man was it nice. It was such a good combination with the Fukuyama cells. It should be available soon.

We just finished the first test run of Fukuyama brushes in 23T stock motor yesterday. During run-in, reading has been showing 10-11A at 2V. After run-in, the reading comes to 12A+ , reaching the highest record I have for a 23T stock motor.

Running on track, it is very obvious lots of torque comes out from motor and let my car accelerate much faster. My one can catch up my friend's at the end of 70M straight with 10M seperation initially. When comes out of corners, it performs like a 11T modified motor pushing a 23T Stock. Finally checking the lap time, the brushes help to reduce around 0.6s per lap over our current racing brushes. Most important point is runtime. My motor now last much more than 8 minutes and reaching close to 10 minutes run. For other high-silver brushes with similar torque and output, I can only get good 5 minutes run. Now the motor never fade throughout the 8 minute race.

Really Impress !!

Anyway, our team drivers will have another test run with Fukuyama brushes this week. Will let you guys know how's the outcome.

Again, thanks for great product from Fukuama Team.

That pack was strong. Charged @ 6.5 amps and I ran a full five minutes with a nine turn with out fading and still had about a minute on the 30 amp discharger before it cut off.

Oh and you know I still would have gotten you if you hadn't had trouble!
