What did you do to improve cooling on the motor? what heatsink fits that motor?
Did you open any cooling holes in the fuse?
Thanks

I just sent the guy an e-mail and suggested he come over here and sell his stuff here. I'm pretty sure his stuff would get sucked up here in a minute, and he would save himself all those fees!

Maybe it's OCD, or just an RC addiction You guys had to keep talking about the Twister, so I too have one on the way!

If I were him, I would not want to sell here, with the products at hand.
Yes the fees on Ebay, but no endless questions, PM's and Email's low balling, can you send it to my grandmothers house?, Can I pay you thursday for a MiniMag today?, and so on.
This can take a whole lot of time.

It's no different from what you get over there, I've been selling for almost 10 years and you get the same wackadoo stuff over there. There really is no downside to selling here, even more so since he has a specific item in big demand.

Yep, my wife sells stuff on ebay sometimes and someone asked her if they could get an item for less after placing a bid. Too late lady! Use buy-it-now next time!

Most of the time I have a Buy it Now. Other times I'll combine a traditional auction with a BIN, but the price for the BIN is just slightly above the BIN. That makes people think about waiting for the 7 days. Most of the time, they use the BIN. Ah...but then there's the bidder who tried to get the item cheap, but got caught up in the auction and has now bid OVER what the BIN price was, plus they have to pay shipping (my BIN always includes shipping). More than half of those bidders write me and try to pay the BIN price saying that I would have accepted it then, why can't I now.

I send them the link explaining non paying bidders (if they aren't easy to deal with).

Since people can use Paypal here, I really so no downside to selling here rather than there. Of course you get a bigger exposure over there, but again with something as specific as RC goods, you can't beat this place.

I think the reason for not selling on here on RCG is because the seller is the USA distributor (aka Hitec - Multiplex USA). Might want to protect their vendor status, maintain some degree of separation/anonymity, etc... I am sure they have their reasons since they know about RCG.
