try rcmart.com or rc-mushroom.com

They are overseas so if you are going to order diff covers, order something else as well so it will justify the shipping charge.

Great websites for some things that I can't find in the US, especially aftermarket hopups.

just make your own with a circle cutter and some vinyl decals.
you can get a larger sheet of carbon fiber decal at pep boys..

I haven't had that problem, but I leave a bit of thread showing on the shock shaft, which might make the difference.

Standing the springs side-by-side (from memory), they were the same height.

Thanks Nick, appreciate it. The report i got was from a mate who borrowed my car for the weekend, so im not sure how he set it up etc, might have forgot to adjust the preload or something

I'll give it a try!

Cheers,

Robbie

They're actually pretty important in order to keep your outdrives from spreading apart over time. The trick, I find, to getting them to go on is to gently squeeze the outdrive together with a pair of needlenose pliers while slipping the ring over the end.

Hey everyone,
This might be a lil off topic cause right now I'm having fun drifting, tho it is with my cyclone. But which way does the FDR have to go to get more torque or speed, is it lower FDR like 7.0, will give you more torque less top end and vise-versa.
Thanks!
