Cheers.
Rebound just increases dampening, it will react to steering inputs quicker and will come off of jumps better. I would run them at 25% rebound and go from there.

Darn too bad. Wolcott is having their Tri State Championship race this Sunday. Still though can't miss the wedding especially if family is expecting to see you there.

Dan,
thank you for spending your time to take the photos. unfortunately i can not really see what you want to show me. the first 2 photos seem to show that you glued your transponder to the radio plate with shoo-goo. right? i am not sure what the other photos show. i am interested in using shoo-goo for strenghtening the body. rocco mentioned that his body is very tough with shoo-goo. does this mean that you apply it around corners and cut-out so that the body will not crack there? like a second skin? or is it too sticky and only used for gluing things together?

THANKS!

good luck for your wife and baby #2!

QUOTE=illebille;4450295]what do you do with the 6V-regulator? mount it outside the box or is the temperature no problem?

Sorry, I was trying to show how I mounted my Protech lipo regulator and personal transponder on the underside of the radio tray.

Use the macro mode for those shots. Autofocus probably will not help that situation without macro mode.

I'm almost done putting mine together, the only problem is there's so many extra screws and nuts in my kit it's making me think I did something wrong. I'm used to kits that put exactly what you need and not add any extras. It's nice!

Yea shoe glue helps keep a body from cracking. You can apply it over drywall tape and it holds very well. Although it makes the body alot heavier.

XRAY likes to put one of every extra piece of hardware in the kits, its quite nice for when that little part goes PLING across the room....
