Thank you James.  My Cruzer will have the 750 STOL standard wheels and no pants so wont be a fast Cruzer.  Its good to hear that you are very pleased with the choice!    I have two other Gen 4 3300 members that I have reached out to - one is Tom as you suggested.  Have you resolved cooling issues or still in the works?  I had thought (hoped?) the Gen 4 was past all that.  Thank you for the inputs.  Tim
