Yes it does thank You. but for what that thing cost. you should not have to patch it up with CA glue. if that's the case the $11 price tag is way too much if the quality is not there

Also, will AMain be receiving then anytime soon?
I actually don't know the lengths, but 4 screws to hold the tower to the bulkhead, 2 for the alloy wing mounts, and the longest one is for the transmission case. This replaces the stock caphead screw for extra clearance from the tower.

The wedge style would be the most durable; remember to pre-thread them.

Does the carbon fiber steering rack really help the b4.1. What will it do for it?
I don't think it's something that is going to change handling, but will give you a smoother, tighter steering rack. It is recommended to seal (thin CA) the graphite edges, but not a must. It's not a case of quality as all graphite has open edges that benefit from being sealed.

I would suggest Green Hybrids .

Unfortunately I don't, but I can assure you we are moving as fast as possible on them. I'm hoping for the end of this month or certainly start of Jan.

Thanks! The JConcepts price point (what I saw on tower) has me waiting to purchase your product instead the competitor's. Keep up the good work!

I just ordered the jc steering rack. You say it's best to seal the hole rack were the bearings go and the outside edges also?

The steering rack is the real deal! Make sure you CA the outside and inside (bearing holes). Just wet a cue tip with medium JC CA. You'll have to press the bearings into the carbon, but you'll be amazed at how much slop you just got rid of.

Quick question... I have a set of Gold Barcodes for 1/8 that are in perfect running condition tread wise but the rims have a few cracks in them. Will doing an acetone bath damage the tire compound? or dry them out? Not worried about the foams as I have extra foams to put in.

Correct; Mike's post sums it up perfect .

Golds and Acetone are a bad combo! You could cut the tire off the wheel with a fresh straight blade or exacto, but be careful .

Hey paul, not trying to rush you guys, but you think you could speed up the process on a soft case for a DX4r Pro, I mean the radio has been out for almost a month now!

Just an idea, sell the radio bags without foams to use as pit/storage bags. I use mine for tires, chargers, electronics etc. I've got about 7 so far, it's amazing how many tires they hold....maybe 18 SC tires!!!

All I require is a Serpent Spyder finisher, some serpent spyder front wheels, and a dx4r soft case. Maybe throw in some shirts and a towel. Lmao
