Yea that is exactly what I said. The diff still needs to have some kind of action to be legal.

As far as I know they do. The best buy on a Lipo charger is the Team Orion Avionics which you can usually buy for around $80 and it'll charge NiCd and NiMh too.

Thanks again.
The reason I ask is I already have a triton and hyperion I use. Didn't want to have to shell out more $$ for another charger.

No special lipo charger needed for any lipo. If you have a 3200 you would just want one that charges at 3 amps at least. Not 100% needed to charge that high but if not it will take quite a while to charge. A guy I race with uses a Triton Jr for his 3200 and it works just fine.

Question about stuffing tires with more than one insert for carpet. On what tires? any specific pattern? or just lay one atop another I am ordering extra sets of soft and hard 60d inserts. I am still trying to find the perfect carpet setup (tires & inserts) for m03m.

Cheers,

Carthik

For tire stuffing I lay the sedan insert in first and then the tamiya foam second. The diameter of the 24mm insert will lay spot on against the outer diameter of the inside of the tire if all that makes sense.

took me a while to understand but I get it. when you say sedan tire you mean touring car (regular sized wheels)? what do you mean when you say tamiya foam?

random question:
I am not too good with precision things so if its possible I dont need to cut the foams I would prefer to go that way. will regular 24mm touring car sized foams fit perfectly over the diameter of the M chassis foams? and the inner diameter of the tires? why not use 26mm? wont the extra 2mm help stiffen the sidewall.

another random question, what is tamiya re-enforced aluminum tape (#53361 used for (battery?), and is the glass tape (#53170) the kind I want for taping in batteries

one more random question, when rebuilding my bearings to make them smoother, will tamiya bearing oil do the job? item number 53508

Cheers,

Carthik

Part Number 49355... the Blue TRF Dampers... Do they use the short springs, or the long ones?

You want to use the 24mm sedan insert inside a 60d Mini tire then use the Tamiya strip foam that came with your Mini. All on a Mini rim.

oh, ok, that makes more sense now, I though you were starting by mounting it on the rim, not tire. soft or hard touring car insert? see my above post again, I edited it with more questions. why not use 26mm sedan inserts instead of 24? wont the extra 2mm re-enforce the sidwall?

Thanks,

Carthik

the 26 is just too wide along with being too thick. You can use a cut down 26mm with no other insert for a good airgap tire though

The tapes were for re-inforcing and heat shielding if I remember correct.

For bearings I usually use 1 drop of Tribo after the bearing has been cleaned of all other greases

Ok, I will use 24 then. What type touring car insert (soft or hard)? What is tribo btw?

I was thinking this for my indoor carpet setup, any comments/suggestions?

front
-type A 60D tire
-hard 60D insert
-hard 24mm touring insert

rear
-type A 60D tire
-hard 60D inesert
-soft 24mm touring insert

would that work? I dont want to lost too much on the handling but would prefer if my A's dont wear out so fast.
