Actually boiling is not the solution. To condition the plastic, you DO NOT want to reach the boiling point. Rather stay beneath it. Between 180-200 f. (90-95 C) you want to keep the parts in the water for 120-150 min. at this temp. While this is not as effective as actually conditioning in a humidity/temp controlled chamber, it is roughly 70% effective.

Note: Actually BOILING the part will remove moisture from the plastic, which is not the desired effect.

Digital servos do seem to make a buzzing noise when powered up.

(Wouldn't run the 30t pinion again as the motor was getting way too hot)
I have a Reedy Mach 13.5 sensored.. 29T pinion? I ride on an indoor track.. carpet.. so I think that would be way too fast.. I like to keep the pinion at 18-19 tooth, so what should the spur count be (13.5 turn engine)?

Thanks. I won't be doing this, but good to know. I believe I was the one at fault and wrenching the front tower down too much.

Here is a link about gearing. It really helped me out so hopefully it will help you out as well.

I run mod. on a small tight indoor carpet track with a 13.5 and almost always run 78/24. I run some boost too, but the amount I run depend on the layout and straightaway length. The book suggests running a 26 tooth pinion for a 13.5, and most guys run a 70 tooth spur in stock ( no timing). I also have a fan on my motor to keep things cool.

I never tried running the 78 tooth spur with a 13.5 motor. I use the 70 tooth spur and run anywhere from 26-29 tooth pinion with very little end bell timing.

I have broken a couple of shock towers from 2011 to now! Boiling them wont help, just replace them once a year and you should not have any problems.

I just bought a used 22 1.0 with 2.0 upgrades and the question I have is it has black springs front and rear. Idk if the kit spring where just black and really the red / yellow it calls for. There's not a black rear spring and the front feels really soft for a black. Thanks .

You are better off running the parts through 1 or 2 cycles in the dish washer

All of the springs are black. There should be a small paint mark on the coil near one end of the spring. Look closely and you should be able to see it.

Can anyone direct me to the part numbers for the normal and titanium 55mm x 3.5mm turnbuckles for the bell crack steering system? I can't find them. Lots of kits and after market but can't find TLR pairs.... Cheers.

55mm HD turnbuckles are not sold as pairs, but are available in the 22-4 stock turn buckles kit (since the 22 2.0 comes with non-HD turnbuckles). http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...odID=TLR234022

55mm HD Titanium Turnbuckles are available in the 22 2.0 Titanium Turnbuckles kit. 4x 55mm and 2x 50mm. http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...odID=TLR334016

What's the story on carbon fiber front towers for the 22 2.0? With all the breakage of the plastic ones. Are the carbon fiber towers a good option?

You should try it...you might like it! Lol. Works well on our very small, very tight carpet track in open class. Their is no stock class to run here right now, but if I ran it, I would opt for that gearing combination.
