Makes sense, but i never amassed so much stuff in my filter. FYI that filter is just a tube with metal screen going across it.

Even better is to use a sintered brass or stone filter. They have far greater surface area and much finer pores than a simple mesh screen. I've been using a Dynamite Big Boy (I think that's what it's called) for several years now and never had a single issue. Still got 2 unopened brass filter inserts which I thought I might need some day. And they come in bling bling colours. I can't stand em, so use the grey/titanium coloured filter. They body seals SO much better than the kit filter and the filter body is larger than the kit filter so offers less reduction in fuel flow. Overall a heaps better option than the crappy mesh screen inserted in the kit filter. Essentially the Dynamite filter is a far better option than the kit part and with many engines in the $400+ price range it's really a bit ridiculous using the kit filter if you're not sponsored and have to buy and pay for your own engines. To use the kit part is almost doing harm to your engine imho. Buy one, you won't be disappointed.

A8 body will be far too narrow. A215 may fit however.

Currently I have a set up issue I don't want to just throw money at.

I have the 8x1.3 pistons , and with the set up oil weights the car felt good but would bottom on out largest double .

I went to a set of fioroni pistons I had with 42f and 37r . Car was money for the first 5 or 6 minutes of the heat , then would start landing crappy again. Went up to 50f and 45r just to see , and again it was awesome for the first 6 or 7 minutes , then started landing bad and costing me time.

I have the 5 x 1.5 pistons and I have the CSI blue pistons . I also think the 6x1.3 pistons might have the pack I need but I would have to buy them .

Thoughts on which pistons would land that large double better ? the 5x1.5s or the CSI blue ?

I ran csi blue recently at a nationals round that bAsically consisted of doubles the whole track lol, anyway, 8 x 1.2 with 45 and 32.5 oils but was still not entirely happy with the pack. The 5x1.5's seemed to pack better even with lighter oils, definitely preferred those

Found an error on Page 46 of TKI4 manual. I ordered new shock bodies which shows (in manual) IF470-01 as front. But received long 55mm Long Rear bodies. Manual has part#'s reversed. IF471-01 is Front 47mm bodies.

Tried searching, and didn't find any answers on this.

Is anyone running the Novarossi 4 shoe clutch? I think that clutch system uses a 34mm flywheel, and Kyosho runs a 32mm flywheel. Any issues? I would think the flywheel will protrude more, and increase chance of killing the engine if there is a chassis slap. If you are running this clutch....is the Nova clutch bell a requirement? Or will the latest vented Kyosho bell work.

Thanks - Greg
