    Hey Randy, do you have D132 cars and do you ever run them at anything more than 14 v? I do that sometimes, as I said in my reply to talljonny, and I always wonder if I'm doing harm (over the long term) to these cars... I'm curious if seasoned racers like yourself do that too or not. Thanks.

      Marwan, yes I do run 1/32nd at around 16v. No issues with them. I have not run them for long periods though. Probably around 30 minutes at a time. Never noticed any electrical smells or odd actions. Most of my D/132 cars have the older green 26732 chips. I have a few with the newer smaller blue 26732 chip, but have not done any long running with them. The 26740 chip for F1 cars has been reported by a number of users to overheat, so I might be a little leery of those. I have a couple F1's but haven't run them much at all.

        I'll keep your comment about the F1 cars in mind and will make sure I don't run those at more than 14 v. Thanks Randy.
