What we do with the boats is use a real small main tank that is always fead buy a much larger tank. That way you never loose the prim & pressure...

Here are some other bodies to look at.

Just want to share

These should stop well. Ofna upgrade disks, Ofna upgrade front pads, kyosho rear pads.Always had the front and wooked good. Added the rear and these should work really good.

I can get part numbers later and post them.

And a clip of video... on wet parking lot the softer suspension of RB keeps the car more planted & direct compared to the IGT2

Nothing compared to BMT but this is buggy based!

That Alpha R3 body looks great!! Is that for the 1/7?? Would love one, but I'm guessing they're not available in Europe...

Ahh.. Nevermind.. Saw that about the R4 at the bottom..

it says 330mm which is buggy wheelbase, not 1/7

Sorry - the vid wasn't public, hope it's now!

A little bit update of the Rally project -

I changed to a center spool with a nylon spur gear, that reduced the rotational
mass by 50 grams (1.76 oz I think) that is a lot!

This should improve the acceleration.

Indeed. I did a short test drive, it really felt more agile. Much better! Also didn't notice any negative in the turning radius or anything like that. It's a keeper ;D

I gonna post one more video soon. Hope it's ok.

Any reduction in rotational mass is a great thing!
