    I didn't think the fans on the Cytron 60A were drawing that much power? Then again, when I put mine in with the Featherweights, that battle started relatively quickly from loading as I seem to recall.

    It's been a while since Mean Machine has been in that many pieces! Hopefully for Grantham this year, it'll show up and do some damage other than running and ramming!
