HPI 6820 have worked fine for me. I've even used standard AE O-Rings in a pinch and they worked fine.

MUCH MORE MK-P30 Perfect Silicone O-Ring 30 Degree
TRF 42137 Competition O-Rrings
Yokomo RS-01 Low-Friction O-Rings
and many more....

Anyone know who in the states may have steel spool outdrives in stock? I may have to run a oneway or JB weld a regular diff if I'd like to run my car again

Just working in the car. I noticed the front belt slapping about while under power when I turn the steering one way or the other. This is while on the bench. Can't say I've noticed it before. Any idea why?

Why isn't Barry Barker at the Reedy ??
I would think he would have been running a Cyclone or a TCX.

Might check the HPi site. I seem to recall they stock servo horns. Also check Nexus Racing. They sell KO stuff.
