Thumbs up DJ Suspension

Ran the new DJ suspension on my car at the weekend at the Scotish SCRA meeting in 19T and it was GREAT lots of rear end grip and very smooth over the small bumps down the straight. Quaified 5th in the A and finished 6th a good meeting even with no testing with this suspension and the car was getting quicker with every run

Default RC Maniax Spool

@TryHard: it's really important to grase a spool - otherwise they won't last long.

we had good results with the 53439 Tamiya Anti Wear Grease in our spool, the blades will last quite long.
if you won't grease it the blades will crack after some runs... which is not the idea.

hope to see many rc maniax spools on the reedy race

hi from switzerland,

Ed,

The grease is not very thick, but it will not get trown off very easy. It's white and smooth and friction is almost gone!!
It's almost the same as the brown Mugen/DIP grease that Hara uses, but slightly thicker....

I have tested atleast 10 different lubes lately and this one is the best so far!! R10 has it in stock!!

Just open the "Todays Stock List" and search for Spin, then you will find some oil's, sprays and greases.
They have three different greases, Spin Grease, Spin Grease Bio and Spin Grease Finesse, the Spin Grease is what you want!!

Cheers,
Eirik

I'm using a spool and wonder if the IRS pin cushions would work on Tamiya CVD's? I was thinking of trying them. I used them before but that was when I ran a spool on my TC3.
