You going to the Forgass Race?
Roy Bakkers solution is an option. I glue the nylon caps to the alu shock cap so they cannot rotate anymore. Make sure you let the glue fully set before inserting the silicone bladder, and clean the threads

I'll have a try with cutting the o rings in the adjusters. Good tip.

Julius- I thought about gluing the components together like you said. I would've wanted to rough up the al. cap first and didn't think it was worth it at the time. rbakkers solution worked well! I ended up using 1/3rd of the ORing. Problem solved.
Thanks to all for the tips! Great support here!

Default M12 Battery

Hey everyone.

Just wondering what battery people are using in their Sanwa M12. As I hate carrying around spare AAs.

Also which online store has the best selection of 748 parts. As I haven't found one place to carry all. Such a pain ordering from multiple places. Thanks again.

I'm still using AAs for the radio, receiver battery I use a 2s lipo.

Desoto Racing carries everything you need for the car, and they're pretty good as far as keeping stock of everything.

Only issue with Desoto is the high cost of UPS shipping. Amain carries most of what you'd need as stock is usually ok too. Shipping is far cheaper than Desoto.

You can use a 2s life or lipo in the M12 such as the one from LRP. I use a Nimh pack personally in my Exzes Z.

Here in Europe 16% everywhere.
I am pretty sure that it's the same in States too.

Default % Fuel?

In the United States, we run 16%, 20%, or 25% depending on qualify

If we run 4 minute or 7 minute qualifiers, usually 20-25%

if standard 5 minutes, 16-20% depending on how fast or slow you are.

Default Titanium vs Steal screws

Hello Everyone

I bought a set of titaniums screws and wanted an opinion if people out there only replace certain screws, and if so is there a downside of using all titanium?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Been awhile since I have been on here. I recently purchased a Natrix 748TQ and wondered if you are meant to unscrew the tie rod from the screw to undo them or just unclip the ballcup leaving the ballend attached to the screw?

I think i like the old system like on the earlier cars where it screwed onto a screw or grub screw like Xray have.

I suggest unscrewing the balls. Clicking of the ballcup makes it get sloppy over time. Just remember to be carefull tightening the rear shocks on the arms as thet is the only position where you have a grub screw. I superglue the grub screw into the arm to make sure it doesn't pull out...
