Which 75 Mhz receiver fits best on the T2. I'm using a Novak XXtra but I'm looking for a smaller option.

I know this may sound stupid and some guys may not want to spend the money but you can find tungston carbide weight about the same size as a 1/4 of lead but it weighs an ounce. So you could eliminate a lot of space on the chassis with it....but its expensive if you can even find it.

Weight that could fit (and mount?) into the battery slots would be ideal since you could keep the weight low on the chassis.

I can't imagine how expensive Tungston carbide is. My wedding ring is made out of that stuff, and I think it cost more than gold. :-D

What's the best fan system to use these days? Are fan necessary? I've noticed some criticism on the MuchMore fans.

Also, which size spur will give the best range of gearing? Can the car resist small debris well enough to use 64 pitch on asphalt?

Uranium will accomplish the same task and its even more massive per unit volume. But that's if you can find it...

Just, you know, fyi.

I'm sure there's spent nuclear fuel rods lying around everywhere in Slovakia ...xray should package it up and sell it.

Well, while you are at it, might as well go all the way..Osmium is the most dense metal on the periodic table. Nearly double the density of lead.. (Lead 11.35 - Osmium 22.6) Maybe we can get our famous Dipl.Eng. Juraj Hudy to design a chassis made solely of Osmium.... Just, you know, F.Y.I

Don't let these guys get you down EA, I still think you're alright. Also, thanks for the info, it appears the weights aren't that expensive and are popular in pinewood derby racing. That "wutty" stuff looks interesting.

They sure are worried about lead weights, and careful handling of the stuff. You never really hear that mentioned in R/C.

You guys might want to stock up on lead sticky weight while you still can. Zinc is replacing lead in these wheel weights, and it is a lot bigger.
