There is practice every Tuesday. Kevin is focusing more on having 1 BIG race a month. Its a lot to get out the ezups, setup tables and all that jazz.

There may be some club races but that is yet to be decided. See you Friday for the last race at Richfield.

Tuesday would be good for me! I am going to try to get there early so I can help with any setup!

Same with racedays. Anything I can do to help!

Been working on the buggy for about a week and had to order a bunch of stuff. Lipo this year baby! Might have some other cool stuff I am working on if I can find the time...

Default Brake release springs

Anyone else tried the brake release springs from answer rc? I put them on to replace the fuel tubing on my losi's and I am not sure that is the correct installation. One spring per disc did not seem to be enough so we stuck two on. With two though, they can bind on each other. So I am thinking of trying the fuel tubing with one spring on each. Does anyone have other suggestions?

Jason- I have OFNA ones on my buggy. I slide one over each screw that the caliper slides on. So thats 2 on the front caliper and 2 on the rear. I dont know if that helps or not. I like em and will prob use springs from now on...

Are you using them on the brake discs or the throttle brake linkage...

I am using the ofna ones as well and will continue to use them....i had to put 2.6mm washers between the brake plates and springs

if you are looking for springs for the throttle and brake...try kyosho mp9 linkage

or use .024 or .022 associated pan car front springs...work good but need replaced after 3 or 4 gal. as they loose the tension from heat or cycles

After reading your post again...try the 2.6mm washers...

I am using them on the linkage, but you might be right, maybe they are supposed to go on the post for the disc.
