All I can say is experiment with different changes, but remember one at a time or you may forget what change worked!

Thanks!, I wet sanded with 400 (I think) and then used autosol metal polish with some elbow grease, it does look good, but it also fades which means I have to redo it. I have a JP3 on the way so it can look good on the shelf!!

It is a tuned pipe, I have one on my 8ight buggy as well. They are a top quality pipe.

One change at a time...sound advice.

If the fading bothers you, you could try a metal polish called PEAK (believe it is American)..used to use it on my ally truck wheels, it leaves a coating on it that seems to make shine last longer than autosol.

Yes. You can tune the way the engine behaves with the pipes. Some pipes are great for one engine but not the best for another engine.

I'd say try to keep the nose up a little more when landing jumps. Either that or there is no shock oil in the rear shocks and it bounces violently off the rear end. Sounds odd to me. Those springs are the ones that come with the roller. I'm not sure what the RTR comes with.

I agree,

rossii... If you want more lift off the jump increase shock oil weight or try harder springs. Also check if the car has "brake-drag"... with the engine off and having the electronics on! Push the car back and forth to feel resistance. if theres "brake-drag" then adjust your throttle/break linkage until you free up the resistance. This will help make it easier to balance the car out in the air.
