do you notice any diffrence with the, run time though with exhaust cooler?
now if i run a fuel filter. and the exhaust cooler, does that make the engine harder to tune?

I have these on my buggy. So far 3 race days and not a bit of wear to report. I got mine from Answer Rc.

All 'red bits' are from Answer, time will tell how the last in the real world of racing.
1st time with a cooler so will have to see once I get my engine in and running. Yep will have to re-locate for better cooling

I like having the marks on the wheels as I find it helps with braking on loose surfaces, lets you see when the wheels are locked (and your skidding!).
Might have to re do them with a better design

Chassis should get seen quite a bit from the way I drive.....

When did you order your chassis and how long did you have to wait to get them from bce?

Ordered in November, received Jan....But was aware it could take some time
I ordered as a bare chassis with no anodizing so I could get my own done....It's all in the planning

Should be ready for the summer season.
