weird, that should pressurize oil past your bottom o-rings...

Nope, shock boots are clean and dry on the inside. I think as long as you have some air in the oil that should alleviate some of the pressure.

I'm using the Mugen starter box with no modifications. Works great + it's small & light. Works on 2 electric rc-car stick packs so the voltage (therefor RPM) is a little higher than the single 12V batery started boxes.

most people use the mugen (mugb0230)......it's a direct fit. good luck finding one however. they are out of stock just about everywhere.

I will add that if you get a new one, it's a kit, you have to build it.

Talking Hey guys

Hey guys I just insalled my kingheadz radio tray stiffiner and I was wondering if this is a ok place to mount my PT. Sorry for the bad pictures I took it with my cell phone.




Now I was wondering if this is a ok place to mount it, What I mean is it will not interfier with anything else. I also made sure no wires were by the spur gear so the spur gear would not shread right threw them. Because you have to cut 2.5mm off the spur gear cover for the radio tray stiffiner to fit. So tell me what you think.

Talking Thanks

Thanks micros4guy And also I was wondering how does it work out there for you. Also you are running the radio tray stiffiner right. I was wondering if you had to cut 2.5mm off the spur gear cover also and did you have to tuck your throttle servo wiring in so your spur gear would not shread it. Thanks again.

Talking hey

Hey Tre I think you read it wrong. I put a radio tray stiffiner on and the radio tray is to hold all of your electronics. And I did not cut the spur gear I cut the cover that covers the spur gear the cover is plastic so I had to trim it down for the radio tray stiffiner to fit. Do you get it now.
