RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

Twinjet, when doing up esc, put a different cooler on it, one with water cooling, you can always make your own. Cheaper and can be done same day. The holes in the aluminum are probably meant for...

RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

There are a few things wrong with 2.4ghz, it does not shoot through stuff such as trees, brush very well when compared to 72mhz (the lower the better). 2.4ghz does not have the range that 72mhz(with...

RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

Going down a size, sometimes ur lucky if a bit of heat shrink if the size difference is so little, ensure that set screw is locking in a groove and loctite. Other way is to go to hobby store and...

RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

RE: Does anyone know where I can purchase 2.4mhz boats?
