Yes, because they go out the door so fast.

But I got 3 in quick order. Secret is to call Horizon instead of ordering on their internet site.

Otherwise, place an order through your lhs.

Just bored so I figured I'd post a mod.



I know you are thinking...sheot that'll break before a raceday is over but beleive it or not it's quite sturdy due to the scallpoed ribs on the sides but it is pretty flexible if you put a squeeze on it side to side.

Taping in the cells would be lighter but I'm just not fond of using it. Last time I taped in cells was on my Yok YR-4M2 PRO and I hated it especially when you're runnin late.

Yes it is NVisible, the Kevlar spurs are heavier than the stock plastic spurs and that's not good for rotating mass IMO.

Also in that pic there's three mods, up in the upper right corner you will see a silver c-spring on the losi servo saver. I stiffened the saver action up by using 3 silver springs instead of 2 silver and 1 gold. Getting the last silver spring on is a beotch since it's smaller than the gold spring but after it's on it fits nicely.

Those are TiR's(Titanium Racing). I beleive it's a company based out of the UK and they have a website but it's down. I purchased the set from Speedworld in California. They have an advertising banner here on RCTech.

Did you just use a regular drill to lighten your spur, or some special secret?

That looks good, I think I will buy a rotary piece for my mill so I can do something like that on spur gears...
