It's simple. Put the shaft in a lathe. Machine down one end - about 1 centimetre (half an inch) till the end with the pin drops out. You are machining just the thickness of the hollow graphite shaft. Now trim it to length and epoxy or superglue the end back in.

It's dead simple.

SOMEONE.

Someone kindly suggested someone who makes a lightweight alloy spool for the SD. Can you give me a website, e-mail address or contact address.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
Cool, I would have never thought of that, thanks for the instruction

The optional zero offset steering knuckles will make the steering more sensitive, the suzuki aluminum ones are .5mm trailing making them inbetween the yokomo plastic versions. I'm running the suzuki knuckles for durability issues and I honestly can't feel a difference in the .5mm between the stock ones and these. If I were to change from the stock ones to the inline ones I might be able to feel it though, just haven't tried the inline ones yet.

Arrow Atheena Projects Carpet Chassis and Upper Deck

The Carpet Chassis and Upper Deck will be available at the end of the month. If you're interested in the parts, email Atheena Projects. [email protected]

The prices are 32 euros for the upper deck and 80 euros for the main chassis.

More information and pictures have been posted at http://www.atheenaprojects.com .

The material used for both the Carpet Main Chassis and Carpet Upper Deck is the highest grade carbon fibre anywhere in RC Car racing. The percentage of carbon is much higher compared to the normal carbon fibre used in RC cars. Both the main chassis and upper deck are so much stiffer compared to the original parts that you won't believe it. Perfect for high-grip carpet racing!

I have some RS #1s in my car right now, I might drill them out to 1.1. I think 1.1 is like a 57 right?

James, I don't have any extras, just ones in a set of shocks. Right now, I'm actually running 3 hole #56 pistons though.
