Good call, axle. Weights in the front work great at the right amounts.

If fill my front bumpers with fine lead shot and then melt wax in to hold it together. I call it the Monkeyracing front bumper.

You need to start putting "TM" in superscript after "Monkeyracing"!

Shoot, they'll be selling my Monkeyracing™ Trigger Mod for Gimpy Fingers™ by Sunday!

I'm trying this out because there's a lot of nerve damage in my hands and its really frustrating when your car stops mid race, because your finger slipped out the bottom of the trigger and you can't tell.



Whats even more frustrating is when your middle finger slips in behind the trigger and you think you're pulling the trigger, but you're not, because there's a fat finger stuck behind it. I'm working on that.

We might have to contest this one in a court of law. Does Canada recognize first-to-use, or first-to-publish? :

ANYWAY, since they do fit, I added one shim on the leaking side, new clear revised o-rings, and GreenSlime on both sides. I only had time to do one run, but no leaks.
I recently purchased a few more of these TOP gear diffs for my SabreFD that also works on the M05/M06. PO-SDT114

The good news is that the new lot comes with the revised non-leaking clear o-rings for the axles.

...can i sell either of you guys the rights to the name "TriggerLoopz"?

Seriously, we race in the summer months and my hands were always a bit wet from sweat ...your ideas remind me to wrap my trigger w/ some kind of absorbent material. I hated the feel of a plastic trigger on my kind of wet finger.

Maybe you could come out w/ an entire line of trigger sleeves and trigger loops in fruity colors, shapes and sizes and various materials. Maybe even a heated one for winter driving??

Looking for ideas for an affordable low profile, metal geared, digital servo. I usually run Savox and Futaba, but I'm looking for something a little more part time/bash oriented. I know there's a bunch of newer brands available on Hobbyking. Anything good there?

I don't know HobbyKing too well, but I found this:

http://www.valuehobby.com/radio-syst...hd-1207tg.html

It's supposedly a good alternative for the Savox 1251MG.

A couple of weeks ago I got a S6070 for like $50 shipped though.. which is also a great deal. I hear Spektrum discontinued the S6070.

Thanks. I'll have a look at that.

Jim, i have used PowerHD servos from rcmart. I need to run a glitch buster with the Spark ESC, but otherwise they are great. Unfortunately, our shitty exchange rate means that the "great price" from rcmart, is not so great anymore.
