I'm thinking of ordering one.  How is heat transferred from the drop-in to the body of the light?

In the same manner as with most P60s.

I just got it in the mail today.  It doesn't dissipate heat the same way as a regular P60 drop-in.  In a regular P60 drop in, if you don't wrap the base, heat will still be transferred through the top of the drop-in via thermal conduction from the pill portion to the reflector.  This aspheric drop-in is split into two pieces separated by a chunk of glass. 

If you don't wrap the base in copper or aluminum on this drop-in, I can't see how it would ever pass any heat into the head of the flashlight.  It looks like wrapping the base is mandatory to transfer any heat at all.

Has anyone had any issues with threading their drop-in into the base of this kit?  I was messing around with an XP-G from solarforce last night (because my XR-E is on a slow boat from China) and I couldn't get it to screw in more than two turns.  I can't screw it in far enough to focus the XP-G die.

Would taking some grease lightning and removing the inner anodizing help???

I'm having the same problem with mine, two threads is about as far as it will go. I haven't tried doing anything with it yet because the dropin I tried it on is not the one I intended to use. I'm waiting for a dropin that Nitro is sending me to use with the kit.

You're never too old to learn something stupid.

Nitro, is it normal for the drop-ins to only screw in two turns?  Do I have to take the anodizing off with something to get them to screw in further?
