well instead of doing what every body else did o their OL when they first got it (lift it) i lowerd my first OL and put on racer wide tires and wheels all around. i just had to pop in my 3 Racing bb motor and see what it had, with a 12 tooth pinion and a little roll backwards it will ride wheelies like a MMt :D now, time to lift it to the sky :D pics to come later............

well I think i just fried the FETS in my OL. i was climbing around on some foam mats with the diff lock in then the motor just quit running, but i still have steering. gonna try another motor first, if that isnt the case then a complete tear down is in order. guess if i fried my FETs then the OL will get the new electronics set from Toy East instead of the 02. then i will fet stack the OL electronics for use in the 02, that way I'll Have breaks and all, till then i might put my 01 electronics in my OL with the SO4 and play with it :D

well this one just saved me some trouble, when i opened the chassis up, and removed the PCB the + side FET fell out in my hand, it got so hot it de-soldered itself, i am gonna try and re-solder it back on, but i am almost positive it is fried :(

if it dosent have a bubble on it then it may be ok. I would try to attachet it back to the board.

BTW i talk to Rayovac about the wrappers coming off of the batteries and the are sending me 2 sets for free. you better fix your OL i dont care if it is stock or not i have run two sets through mine and it runs like a dream. better then it did when i first got it. Thanks again Phredd

It's still not here yet. :( I ordered it off ebay.

LHS price: $99.99 + 9.75% sales tax = ~$110
ebay price: $99.99 + free shipping + $0.90 money order fee + $0.37 stamp = spite for the LHS. :D

So I reckon I'm only saving about 6 or 7 bucks, but it's the principle!
