I am not wanting to make a profit on these items. I originally only wanted to make a few items for myself. As long as I can pay for material & tooling I will sell them cheap.

Default Battry strap

Put me down for one of each. Being a machinist myself I always think about making this stuff. What software are you using? that looks like solid works.

Further 60wt-front&50wt-rear oil with AE red-front&AE gold-rear springs. Remember that especially with stock your drive-train has to be 200% effiecient as every little part has an influence. If you are looking at hop-ups, definitely consider the Square TI input shafts; carbon drive shaft; ceramic bearings (I like ACER). Use a piece of car shammy with the vent holes cut open and keep it wet before going on the track(I use a mediacal syringe with water). This is cheap, ligther than a heatsink and even try Nitro Freeze spray to keep it really cool. Also change you pivot blocks from the stock set to 0deg-front & 1deg-rear.
Hope it helps!

What's a good tire combo to use for racing indoors, another pro4 driver at my track said 22's in the rear and 27's in the front. But that was when i had the standard chassis. I now have a bmi 3mm chassis.

that goes double for me. trying to hunt down some med bite asphalt set-ups with take-off tires. i've often read that base set-up is very good for mod. i'd like to try it out. i've also bought a 0 degree pivot block for the front and a 2 degree pivot block for the rear. too bad we've got rain coming in our area......sure need some out-door rubber testing!

O.k. i was realy bored one day and i tried coming up with a new way to warm up my tires. When i just got my duratrax ice i decided to test the motor break in, so i grabbed a stock tamiya motor. So what i did was use the part of the armature that you put the pinion on and started sliding it over the tires slowly. I would do it til the tire stated smoking a little bit. Then i'd wait for it to cool down a little bit. After i was done i tested the warmed (now soft tires). It turns out it works. I was really bored just remember.
