JB4 G5

Anyone upgraded to the new G5 board. I'd be tempted but I don't know if I could survive without the JB for a couple of weeks, for what seems like a small improvement.

Why do you need to live without the JB4 G4? Just buy the G5 board connect and off you go. You can borrow mine if you want.

So True. It's only four screws.

Get begging on your knees b!tch!!

Just let me solder that new resistor on the board in the next few days and then you can try it out. It will hold onto boost a little longer than the G4. Not bad for cooler temps but I probably wouldn't run it on 30+ degree weather this summer.

- Do you have a USB in your glove compartment?
