No, but this depends on wire size and hole size and
No, I've had no binding issues but on the DW's, it is very easy to get the geometry such that this isn't a concern.
Hey, I like cheaper and lighter!

I think that was Spiked3. I don't have anything approaching $7k. If I add up each model individually, the number gets much larger though.

Leaving no stone unturned, I spent some time running thru the entire Crack Yak Std thread from begining to end compiling the best tips & tricks beyond what the build log or manual states. I figured before I build mine I could learn alot from others who are willing to share. If I am going to get addicted then I want to make sure I have got some uber super crack.

Thanks for the tip. I figured I have to buy a separate six position balance board since I only have the stock thunder power balance board with one 2s JST connector port. Also I don't feel warm an fuzzy about charging without a balancer what are your thoughts?

I never charge without balancing!
I use the ProgressiveRC cables and on the balance side I use the 6S cable set for everything I do because you can plug 2,3,4,5 & 6S connectors into it.
Just my 2 cents -

I also typically balance everytime I charge as well, although it really isn't critical if your packs are in balance to start with. I regularly use a paraboard for normal balance charging. Mine is setup for XT60 connectors. Since the board already has the balance ports, all I need for the small packs that use JST power connectors is the adapter cable I linked to and I can balance charge up to 6 packs simultaneously, which just about covers most outings with my foamy.

Crazy drivers out there. Be Careful!

Went to the HobbyKing warehouse earlier to pick up a motor/esc to get the crackyak going and it was the first time I have witnessed an accident in my rear view mirror right before the 512n exit.

I guess the lesson learned is.....if your cars quarter panel barely makes contact with someone elses car.....don't jerk your car completely off the road and fishtale through a field of grass.

I thought the person recovered, but coming back there was a whole accident scene. Didn't look like anyone was hurt though.

Hey guys! Just wanted to pop back in to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my 3d knuckle head bros! Miss you guys and sorry to be a recluse the last few weeks, but the new job and family have had me burning the candle at both ends with not much left in the middle for sleep...

Making sure all my new big builds are running cans so I can play up north without ruffling any feathers. I'm in Auburn M-F 7-6 so I'm halfway north for any random fun, just keep me in the loop. Rarely on the web or email, but shoot me a text at my new cell # any time.

Take care boys and huck on!
Tim
