instead of leave the tag outside of the spring, keep em inside of the spring makes the tag last longer.

Get a dremel with a cutting disk and cut some "lines" into one end of the spring. Make it easy and cut 1 line for a 10.5lbs, 2 lines for a 12.5lbs, 3 lines for a 15lbs etc... It would only take a second to cut and you would then be able to remove the tags and keep your setup to your self if you want.

Just getting back into the hobby after a long layoff..... When I was racing before (Moses was playing T-ball and dirt had just been invented) companies used a small dot of paint to color code spring rates much like Associated does today only they did not color the whole spring.

Does anybody know of an aluminum replacement part ?
Thanks.
A company in italy makes one, but it really shouldn't be necessary. Chances are you overtightened it the first time and stripped it out, get a new one and be careful tightening it, you can definitely set it tighter than needed with the plastic outdrive. Check your thrust bearing now too, you probably damaged the cage now.

You should easily be able to get the diff tight enough without stripping the outdrive. Keep in mind that the diff is designed to slip a little, which is why there is the brass shim between the diff tube and ring.

Interesting, I was wondering about that. Why would they design the diff to slip a little when everyone else has 'd' rings on both halves ? I would think the mod foam guys would
hate that.
Thanks.

Hi ya, i've taken a couple of pics for you, (sorry about the quality)
Being different colour they are quite easy to see, even on the car.

I got them from someone i worked with ages ago.

All they are, are little markers that elecricians put on to cables to identify them. They are similar to these,

have a look around electrical wholesalers and the like.

Seeing the colored cable markers gave me an idea. Why not use heat shrink tubing. I got a multi pack at Radio Shack the other day that had red white blue and black. If you would need more than 4 colors you could use two pieces of different colors.

Default C Hubs

I have been running Xray touring cars for a while. Decided to try a Losi type R. Wow, the C hubs seem to be made of peanut brittle. Just brush the wall a little and presto, C Hub in 2 pieces now....

Anyone else notice this ?
