ILDRVR, we had a problem with the brake rods binding in the brake arms/eyelets. It wasn’t bad but here’s a picture of how I fixed this. The front brake arm on the bottom is also bent.

Mcran: Thanks that is what I was looking for. I wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong with it.

Thank you

Heya Gene...i grabbed a copy of your setup sheet off the cen site, from Mills Pond/smooth-blue groove track and it says 30wt-#2 pistons on the rear.
I was going to start with this setup for the local track which is super hard right now, but no blue groove. Its very slick with a tight layout, 130' straight.

Also can someone post the oil equivelent chart that shows what brands equal what, ie:
Mugen 700cps =ASC 60wt=Losi 50wt (<Im just guessing those)
I seen it posted on the grid but cant find it now.

thnx
