Yes 8mins and anywhere from 8~10 turn motors were used

Rainbow Ten. I ordered what I thought was 3 pairs....but they came in sets. OOps! They don't look like they have any graphite in them. 31420 vs the standard 73506's

Woven carbon should be stronger, since it is structured. I'm guessing straight carbon is like what the TC4 is made out of, but with less additives.

ハイトラクションサスペンションアーム which modifies the material and normal compared to can give pliability. When the road surface whose grip is bad and the key liking to hold down behavior tweet, it is optimum to use. And it is effective as a portion of setting it is possible regarding the high grip road surface to change steering wheel quality by the fact that uses on only the front."

31420 arms are the same arm design with a different material that is softer. Another tuning option for loose conditions or for more forgiving arms (read forgiving as: good if you tend to crash a lot ).

Erik: What is the part number for the shock retaining clips? Do I have to order the shock shaft guide set? I haven't seen anywhere that sells the clips or specifies what I need to buy to obtain the clips.

thanks
chad

Hey Guys
Just finished putting my Pro 4 togather
The only issue I had was with the Shock Caps not "clicking" into place. I had 2 shocks like this, one of which I replaced with a new cap that I bought in the Hobby Shop. I am told that this is a rather common problem. Where do I send this to get it corrected?

Thanks
