Sorry, the bubble level shown it the pic is not included. We got this from Home Depot. Rona, and Lowes carry the same one.

The BalancePro will work fine on any flat surface. The bubble level is only really necessary if you are using it at the track where the table may not be level at all.

We have been getting a few questions on the adapters that is included with the BalancePro V2 because the pictures don't show the details on the adapter itself.

The V2 includes three adapters; 12mm hex, 14mm hex, and 17mm hex.

The 12mm hex adapter is for the 1/10 touring car wheels. For those that also run 1/10 short-course, the 14mm hex adapter is for that.

17mm is for 1/8 buggy and truggy wheels.

We got a few questions regarding changing pistons on 1/10 touring car shocks at a race and thought we share it with you all.

Some racers have told us that they found that the tiny button head screw at times have come loose or completely off the shock shaft during a race. Since the shaft/piston is submerged in silicone oil, thread locker won't cure fast enough during a race and the oil will wash out the thread locker unless it is cured.

If you torque down the button head screw while holding the ball end, the shaft could thread deeper into it changing its length. The GRID shock shaft tool can grip the shaft firmly and allow you to torque the button screw down more.

Default MT-4 Drop-down steering

Hi,

I would be interested in a drop-down steering adaptor for the MT4. Please let me know if you have a pilot program, as I would be happy to help with testing if needed.

Thanks.

We would like to keep it as low as possible as a pilot. Final price will depend on how many people we can get for this pilot.

We tried to do this project a year ago with little interest. Majority of the MT4 owners considered a backlight and radio skins as higher priority upgrades over a drop down. Racers that must have a drop down and backlight went directly to the flagship radio, the M11X.

As a Team Driver for Airtronics, I would really be interested in the Drop Down. It woud make the MT4 even more comfortable than it already is.
