Blu Tack is a versatile, reusable putty-like pressure-sensitive adhesive. Common uses are to:

* Hold up posters
* Hold telephones, mouse mats and other small items in place
* Hold screws to screw drivers, model parts in position for painting or gluing
* Keep picture frames level
* Clean fluff from fabric and dirt hard to get at places, such as computer keyboards
* Lock differentials in Tamiya mini's and still allow slip

The original version was blue, but myriad colours are now available. It is based on a formulation consisting of synthetic rubber, polymers, oil, and inorganic fillers.

No, about 80% but it works its way out and then you have to repack it.

How come nearly everyone now seems obsessed with locking their diffs in some way? (Not picking on you specifically here Glenn, its a big trend everywhere)
Why not just leave the things as they are and run like that....level playing field all round.

Just got my Team Orion Carbon Lipo 3200 pack! Will run it in my mini very soon. Thanks tony/rc-mini for the setup info. Looking forward to that extra jump/speed/runtime! just wondering if you could show a picture of how you wired it up. Looks like all your wiring is in the chassis and the pics on rc-mini don't really show much detail. Do you also run a balancer between your charger and pack? How many amps are you charging with? Thanks!!

Checkout taipei's 1st indoor rc track. It's short and winding; just perfect for the mini!

Well as you know, it never a level playing field. there is always someone out there doing something to their car to make it faster yet boarder line illegal.

Gotta look at it this way...they may be borderline illegal and if they get teched at a major race (if they even go to them, not everyone does) then they are banned from those races and that's a risk some are willing to take. Now, if they are just racing some club races or bashing parking lots then who cares really. I mean, I put a brushless 3.5R in my mini just for grins. It was WAY illegal but it was a hoot to watch it scream down the road, flip 25 times, land on it's wheels and still limp back.

Most tracks were far outside in the suburb and I didn't have a car to go there.

YES! that was the problem before. Tracks were outside and not easily accessible. The track/shop is located in the city just north of domestic airport.
