I would get some grippy rubber sheeting and put a layer under the battery.

I have this great stuff in the boot of my car which stops stuff from sliding around, although its pretty thick and would make the battery sit a touch higher.

I would think 3m double sided tape (like scotch tape but sticky on both sides) would work well. You would have to reapply it every time you took the battery out however.

Thats how mine is as well except I have servo tape holding the lexan and I only have one layer of lexan. HTH

Default What type of file....

CA ALL edges and even the countersink holes. That helps to prevent delamination.
Any specific type of file, If I remember correctly there are different corses for files?

Thanks....

I CA'd the countersunk holes and I had a hard time getting the screws out. And yes the CA had completely dried. It was like I had used locktite on the screws.

I stopped at the local drug store and picked up some nail files. They were cheap and they seemed to do the job. This is my first time doing it so their may be a better idea but it seemed to do the trick.

Thanks for the picture. I am still using NiM. but thinking of making the change soon. ( waiting for the GFX35 upgrade to go up to 4 cell ) And when and if they do. I will be using your idea of the lexan looks great. How do you attach the lexan? Survo tape? Thanks

Hey Guys I use these little rubber bumpers. You can get them at most houseware stores or walmart.. Just tape the pack in the car, get it centered and stick them in place. Works pretty good the pack dont move around. I was not a fan of the lexan bit.. So this is what I came up with..

Thumbs up RC12R5.1 Ceramic Bearings

We just released a complete Ceramic Bearing set for the RC12R5.1. It includes all the bearings and we did NOT use grease in them, just our SIN fully synthetic and superlite oil so they are very very fast. Introductory price is only $59.99 with FREE worldwide shipping! Thanks.

Only if Associated win a major race by a Yokomo driver (Matsukura) will they release their version. I saw a 5.1 in a yokomo booth on some web site but can't seem to remember where. I would love them to redesign the chassis like the new corally lipo edition!

They measure around 10mm. They were in a assortment pack. I bought 1 of every kind they had to get the right ones.. These are the flat ones. Dont get the rounded ones, they are to fat..

Never had that happen in 20+ years of RC. Always used thin CA with a Q-tip and applied before putting the screws in .
