This is really just a trivia question. I did a rebuild on my old M01, I'd forgotten about the alternating arm springs on each corner, anyone know why in the front you have the stiffer spring on the right but in the back you have the stiffer spring on the left? It seems like it would favor left turns....

Deves - Do the hot tips talk about using more or less cone washers for adjustment?

I'm ready!

But there's still plenty of time to take it apart a few more times before this weekend.


Let's see some pics of yours!

It doesnt Doc? I'll have a look at that, not sure how my software accomodates Mac stuff and I have no way of testing it. It scrolls with the wheel perfectly on a PC...

But thanks for the heads up on that.

As for the ABC Mini, well we've got that and about 4 others, just not online yet!

Just checked with the software people and its a known bug. There is a fix but not sure I can handle the complexity!

Its due to sorted on their next service pack upgrade....

But if it works on Firefox that'll have to do!

I have an M03 Mini and bought a TRF Damper Set (#53571) with Yellow Springs. I dont know what damper oil to use. Can anyone please let me know what oil # should I buy? 400? 500? 600? etc etc.
Any help please.

My M04M is still in full spec lay out. Haven't even painted the body yet. Getting bearings today, but that's it for now. Couldn't do KO, unfortunately. I guess as long as I'm ready for regionals! I can't seem to find the Alfa body for it, though.

Mini Tonik - I've heard 400, 500, and 600 used in different people's setups. I would guess 800 is too thick, and 200 is too thin.

Thank gibbous! Maybe I'll just try 500 and go from there.

Take a look at the Specials page for more stuff to laugh at!
