    Just another confirmation that they'll fit. Work them in there, you end up with a nice compact and solid tire which doesn't balloon at all with a line of tape around the inside.

    When to replace slipper pads

    I was doing a bit of maintenance on the ERBE and noticed my slipper pads have some deep lines carved in them, the slipper was clearly too loose and they've worn down quite a bit.

    This is interesting - I'm running 4s on 18/54 and the ESC fan comes on fairly regularly during a normal run. I have a temp gauge on the way so not sure of temps at the moment. The motor and ESC are...

    My power supply exploded a while back. I just use my car battery - it's always in the garage attached to the house so it's easy to keep an eye on it. It's done the job fine for around a year now.
