Had the old one's laying around from my 710-720 days.

Btw, did anyone tried lowering the engine?. I think it's pretty easy to lower it by 1mm, because i'm currently running the serpent WC clutch with the small flywheel and it's pretty hard to get the starter wheel to grab the flywheel.
I would only like to know if you will run into issues with the stock flywheel i.e. hitting the ground.

If you were to lower the engine by 1mm then you would have to also move the engine back about 1mm also. Then you would have to slot the lower screw locations on the chassis and re-countersink them. Then every time you hit something, the engine would have the chance to move forward up to 1 mm, stripping your gears...but what do I know.

Hmm, didn't thought about that.
Thanks, that saves me a set of engine mounts.

And i don't want to go as far as to mod the great mounting system xray uses on the car.

I use a small flat blade screw driver to crape most of it out then just use a rag to wipe it all clean. time consuming but pretty clean way of doing it

This way works great when you need to do it like at the track. Also, you can get a can of Nitro Clean after you have done this and blast away the rest of the fluid in the corners, but you can make a mess that way.

If you have more time, and are not in a rush, like at home, I take everything out and lay it out on a lint free towel overnight, put the case upside down and when you get to it the next day, its as clean as you can get it,

I put the hole thing in a can with kerosene, leave it overnight and it will be gone.

You people are so diligent ...... I use tissue to clean the diff unit and put everything back in 5 minutes

Btw, I put a dab of tamiya ceramic grease to keep the diff gears last longer.
