Ah 300.. The movies were PACKED. we wanted to see it but it was so fukin full at the movies. Friday Saturday And Sunday. Yea the last thing i did last nite with my rs4 was get it to start then idle with out the ignitor on it. It did it once but then cut out. I started it up again then it just idled till i stoped it. When the first time it cut out i did the water test. sizzled for 10 secs. thast the hotest ive ever had the engine ( just to give an idea how new this engine still is. ) i think i have around 1 QT and 2-3 tanks on the engine. That includes break in. So i cant figure out why ive been having these types of issuse. but if i can get it to idle today i might get some form of a run in[&:]

dammit jon u noob[&:] no im playin. the water test is when u put a drop of water on the heat sink/cooling head (around the glow plug) and if is sizzles for 3 secs the engine it running too hot but if its 7+ secs your cold. something around that. the point of it is, i dont like to / dont really run my car any bit hot. im not too concerned on tuneing the engine for full power simply because the engine has plenty of power as it is right now. and ive gotten it a bit closer to 100% tuned (around 85%) and thats when i bent the dog bone (and broke it the 2nd one). So i know im gonna want to get the engine tuned for full on power with out going lean but untill i get eventhing i want for the car. im not looking for full power "yet"

.,.... SOoOoO... yeah.. I FINALLY GOT MY SHIPMENT FROM TOWER HOBBIES! @ LAST!!! ... (exactly 30 days l8r)... was kinda happy 2 FINALLY get it, but i dunno, i spent 2 bills, and it took 4 ever 2 get here, like it was a 10-30 day shipment but fuk, that was long... and yeah im happy i installed my ths pipe 2day and i also tried installing my venom fail safe, after programming the fail safe and attatching all the wires i tried pulling the throttle on my transmitter/controller, and it didnt work, the throttle didnt move @ all, not brake, not acceleration...i was liek ***, i then re-connected all the wires and made sure it was the throtlle i took out of the reciever 2 stick into the vfs...

... i then went home called venom, they didnt answer and iwas really stuck.. i went and asked the local hobby store (lhs) and they said they couldnt figure out *** was going on... i then took it home and 1 of the wires were loose... so now its fukt, cuz i think theres nothign u can do about a wire that not in that connector peice...

.... now is there ANYTHING u guys knwo what i can do? liek i tried heating it up and sticking it in, that didnt work, but i jsut used a lighter, no special tool... so i dunno im gunna go 2 the LHS 2moro, now that i knwo the problem, and see what they say... im kinda pissed.. and disapointer cuz the digital venom temp fail safe arent that cheap.... any suggestions? i tried also tapping it in place, but 1 that didnt work, and if it did id be worried it will fall out.... any suggestions would be helpfull, thx guys...

nice hybrid.. u going drifting? .. i was thinking of getting those HPI super drift A tyres too but i got yokomo ones w/kawada's instead.

be careful with your engine man, make sure you cut out the windows* or else it will overheat. I usually drift with no shell on but it depends on the climate on your country, its summer over here atm

jonsmilez: i re-read what you said and i think it makes sense now. If your trying to say that the connector from the failsafe has a wire loose from the black housing it usually sits on. Theres one of 3 things you can do about it:

1) Buy a servo connector kit = $35'ish

2) Re-connect the wire back into the housing. You have to take the pins out from the housing and crimp the wire that came out back on it. This is hard and takes time. Ive done it to shorten my servo wires and other wires, you need abit of tools like a soldering iron to do this

3)Buy a servo extension wire/lead = $4. Completely cut out the failsafes wire housing and let the 3wires stickout then cut out part of the servo extension wire and let the 3wires stick out of that too, then all u gotta do is connect the 3wires that are sticking out on both ends.

This might help you both ways [link]http://www.hansenhobbies.com/products/connectors/Connectors.pdf[/link]. Right click and click Save As/Save target As if nothing shows up, so it saves it into your computer.

You can also send the failsafe back and theyll repair it for you, but its gonna cost you time and money

yeah im gunan go 2moro 2 a hobby store and see if i can sawder it in or if they can help me in a way or 2 cuz they have the tool i dont have and i need....

... and yes i was htinking of sending it back 2 tower hobbies or even give it 2 venom, and i think because both these companies are so big they wont have aproblem giving me a new 1, the only thing would be is i hjave 2 pay 4 shiping, and i mean if shiping is gunna be expensive cuz i gotta get parts from toronto canada 2 either tower hobbies which is in illinonis, or venom which is in california its gunan be alot on shippping, and i mean if im gunna spend the money on shiping, then have 2 wait, im thinking jsut buy a new 1, although i am rally pissed off about that.... fukin stupid! :@...

... but hellsgod i do appreciate it!
