What new steering blocks are you talking about. We only have the ones that come in the 08 kit, I use the 0 degree. Serpent does not have any others that I know about. I am still talking to Paolo about the chicago race. Not sure if the civic body is ready for ship yet, but man if you like a lot of stable steering this body is great.

Hope this helps and if I missed anything just ask.

Regards,

DJ Apolaro
DJ, on this setup, you were running 30 grams of weight up front. Was this with or without the front brass plate installed?

Yes on the 30 grams and no on the brass front plate. I was however using the brass battery tray with a stardard battery, not a lipo. With this set-up my car with tires (60mm rear/59mm front) and body weights 1740 grams. I use alum. screws on the top screws and standard on the bottom.

Hope this helps,

What type of receiver pack do most run? I've been running a 1000 pack and had a problem this weekend with it. I was told that I was charging it wrong. I have a ICE charger. What is best for charging?

Thanks in advance.

Slow charging your receiver pack will produce the best result, 1000 mAh packs can last more than an hour when slow charged at 500 mAh.

It does not matter how you charge it, as long as it is set at 500mAh.
my favorite charger is the $7.95 wall charger designed to charge receiver battery packs, I always charge it overnight and the battery last the whole day at the track.

Thanks Sam for the info.

I have a ice charger. It goes from .1 to 8 amps and zero mv and up. I guess I could use my Ko wall charger that I have for my radio.

Hope to meet you at the Classic.
