Re: giant stiletto

Do you get hassled from the fuzz and how much fake pedalling vs real pedalling do you do? I doubt you'd be doing real pedalling going fast so fake pedalling is in order there. Like that picture you posted on where you need to zip out into traffic, how long are you in traffic for there?

Those from Hobbyking are genuine, the XT90 that I have purchased at least. But still, I don’t like them. I prefer the big gold bullets to assemble lipo bricks, and big Andersons for power and phase connections.
