hard grey spring 1.8 mm (909518) preload to 1.5mm or black hard spring 1.8mm (909520) preload 1.0mm

Now I am thinking to get a Mega DSII+ and I wonder which is the recommended setup for this engine.

Any recommendations for pipes for this engine?
for Picco based engines, the best pipe i've try is IDM 2617
an best plug is Picco TC6.

Hey DJ,

Congrats on your recent finishes @ the WinterNats. I wanted to ask you a question about traction rolling. What are some of the steps that you take to make you car avoid rolling very easy. Thanks in advance for the help. Trying to learn for a new track.

I find roll center to be a big help with traction rolling. The lower rear hinge pins move them up.

1.Lcg chassis
2.Lcg one piece motor mount and 31mm flywheel
3.Two sets of front steering blocks
4. New stronger front CVD
5. Aluminum X mount
6. 33gram front brass plate
7. Red clutch shoe and front gear diff and the one-way solid lock set.
Also the plastics are stronger.

well there was some great racing last night in bunbury Perth Australia.
im still waiting for my new 720 to arrive, so im still using an original 720.
times were very tight with fellow friend and Xray driver, but just scraped in for TQ, and the final was a very close 1 second difference with the 720 just scraping it home infront. im hoping a new car will help me gain some very needed 10ths of seconds, but very fun racing all night. even the original 720 can mix it with the newer cars.
