I've still got an "Official Volcano Observer" button and a container of ash too.

Looks like Randy is going to leave us hanging on his 9,999 posts until after the Reedy.

Let me see...which was the best one? Might get back to you about that in a few weeks...

Is there much of a difference between a cut yellow belt and the new black belt kit?

Default Stripped Threads

Quick question for you guys. Wouldn't surprise me if some of you have encountered this problem too. I just bought a new chassis for my xxxs (upgraded to graphite). When I was installing the belt cover on the bottom I somehow stripped one of the screw holes that the small 2-56 screws thread into. I'm not sure how as I hardly put any pressure when screwing it in, but I'm wondering if any of you know of a way to fix stripped threads. I was thinking about trying to find longer 2-56 screws. Any idea who might have these? The kit uses 1/4 inch screws, but I think the holes would accept 1/2 inch.

With so many posts the question has probably been asked before....

but anyway I'm thinking of getting a xxx-s G+ but just want to know a couple of things.

Firstly I know it's designed for saddle packs but as I only currently have stick packs does anyone know how it handles with stick?

And secondly as I would be running it in the New Zealand stock class only a mabuchi 540 motor is allowed so I'm wondering what gearing would be a good starting point with the 86 tooth spur, assuming of course a big enough pinion can be found to match up with it?

Actually the xxxs (both standard and G+) uses stick packs, not saddles. And it handles quite nicely with those!

Regarding gearing, I have no idea. It's been ages since I've run a standard 540.

either buy a longer screw, or use the ca method.
to use the ca method, put a drop of ca in the screw hole, wait 30 seconds, thread in the screw, wait 30 seconds, and remove the screw. wait a few minutes before threading back into the screw hole. this method works pretty well for the screws with little pressure on them.

Check out Mcmaster.com - they have all the hardware you could ever want including 'Helicoil' kits. A Helicoil is a helical steel insert that is intended to be used in stripped out holes. Just drill out the hole with the supplied bit, re-thread it with the supplied helicoil tap, and insert the helicoil with the supplied tool. Viola! You have new steel threads.
