Personally I have never had a problem with the plastic spool, its lasted me for the entire national/outdoor season since april without a single fault.

That spools gonna have quite a price tag, even in yen thats expensive, once shipped.........who knows!

Hi Guy's
As the doctor ordered well you racers anyway

I have now designed a CCF + which is a separate carbon fibre bracket that can be attached to your existing CCF, The fan can sit above or below the carbon fibre bracket and can be cut to the desired length when the desired position has been adopted. It will hang over the speedo to help keep it from over heating, this item is especially useful for the brushless speedo’s because of there thermal cut out. There will be different length screws along with different length carbon fibre stand-off collars. all for £19.99 of your Britsh pounds and will fit onto ALL CCF's except JRX-S
Cheer Malc THE CAN MAN

The car in the photo is Chris Kerswells, and its the first of its type.

I use a Droop Gauge as for example Losis or the Yokomo one.

here is an example of how it's done

No I didn't because in Germany everyone messures like I do.
We only run Rubber Tires so meassuring "xxmm above rideheigh" is not necessary.

david Junnw ay is measuring from the top of stub axles !!
take all wheels off ,put car chassis flat on pitboard & measure with a set a calipers
26mm= 6 droop on yok gauge do it both ways just to cross reference
24mm=4 on yoke
droop gauge

another way hold wheel down then pull chassis up,push ride gauge under & measure uptravel (to much farting around that way) so i do it Junn`s way first & double check yoke way after

i am able to get my droop to be the same as stated a few post back, with a shock length of 63mm, but you need to build the shocks with the triangel peice upside down with 1/2 of the shoulder removed

Default top deck

Does anyone know if any shops in the states have the shooter or team bombers stiff Top decks in stock?

Is one more stiffer than the other.

Thanks Rctechers

my dampers are 63m in the front and 65,5 in the rear, both with the short end (with 65,5 I'm able to geht 3mm of Droop with the Masami Spec parts) with the original bd parts 63 should be enough.
