Looking for a tried and trued method of closing holes in pistons. Some say to use glue, some say epoxy, it will be my first time doing this. Also any leads to a cheap 1.3mm drill bit would be helpful.

I use toothpicks and ca, dip the pick in ca-plug a hole-trim flush, a drop on the trimmed end..I have seen most places sell "the hole thing" for drilling pistons, they're about $15 for 5-6 bits and a handle..

Sorry if this has been brought up already. What's the difference between the rm3 and rm4 (and don't say gears )? Thanks

Saw that. Might be a good future investment.

Just how the motor rotates in relation to the wheels. RM3 offers more control in air, RM4 makes the rear dig in more on power (causes it to wheelie easier).

Medium grip clay OC/RC need more on power steering (and less push, add weight?), What would you suggest, at this point running kit setup and losi 35 front, 30 rear 1.5 degree anti-squat, full length lipo.

Try a stiffer rear spring. A shorty lipo is the ticket for indoor.

Another method I heard is to use a soldering iron - dont know if it works though - haven't tried it

Have the dark blues on the way, that should help somewhat? Will invest in a shorty lipo soon.

tried to do the cpt america bump steer mod today. 2 mm between the pivot arms and chassis, 1 mm under inner ball studs and stock height for outer ball stud. I still have a bit of bump steer. Should I also do 6mm on the ball studs near wheel, the outers? Or am I doing something wrong?

For the ackerman plate using racers edge one with back hole for inner stud

You need to put a 2mm spacer under the ball studs like the original instructions.
