I'm sure she would agree that Justin would prefer to share a cell with Pamela Anderson than Bubba the 120kg lifer.

I just finished a marathon maintenance session that started at 10am this morning, with breaks for school pick-up, making dinner and making it look like I had not been working on cars all day, and then back into it when the kids all asleep. Got heaps of things fixed but the most important was the T4 which is now RPM front and rear, all bearings replaced or cleaned, front and rear ends basically all new parts. TA04 is running ball diffs. All NiMh & NiCd batteries have been cycled back to their proper capacity and repaired where necessary. Heaps of leads repaired. Blowie pretty much rebuilt.

Also discovered that the reason I was continually blowing bearings in the T4 is because the dog bone I replaced on the CVD (original was a bit worn) was the wrong length (must ask Yung what it is from), so I replaced with original worn dogbone and will have to replace that when I can - anybody got a spare they want to sell? It's no wonder it was jittery Peli, half the bearings in the rear were seized and the whole thing was outta whack!

Shannon, remind me next race meet that I have some CVDs that might fit your RC10T.

Well time for bed now!

I thought I'd try Losi shocks on my DB01R,
If anyone has some advice on setup with piston/ springs/oil that would be great

yeah i know what you're saying,
I'm trying to replicate my preasent setup with losi Shocks as I think they're less maintanance,
If it don't work I've got the present setup ready to go on in 10mins time
Thing is when your buggy is driving good and it just leaves your skill level to improve, there's less things to do at work and considering I've got 2 sets of Losi shocks I thought, why not, beats working
