I am using the spektrum pro and trying to fit that with the regulator and also the switch on the side will be to tight a fit for me unless I go spektrum micro? it would be great to fit it all in!

Any pics on this mod?

The change of it catching fire is very slim, it's actually quite hard to put our fuel on fire out in the open. Another guy at our club has been running the exact same setup for 2 years without a single problem.
And too bad for you that you have someone pitting for you who is a doofus, i don't.

It's pretty easy, just cut a bit of foam out at the bottom of the bumper, then you can put the weight between the lower bumper plate and the bumper itself. I run 25 grams of lead in the front.

Loctite or Teroson brand by Henkel International.





( Btw, I think Permatex brand is still the best for gasket sealant )

The shoes without holes seems inconsistent.

I like an agressive clutch, does somebody else have any thoughts on this.

Thanks.

for the people who are saying that you need 20grams of extra weight at the front, just buy the hard foam xray bumper. it is approx 20 grams heavier than the stock one, problem solved, used with the wider plastic bumper you should get the extra weight easy.


regarding the regulators. Novaks regulator is probably the smallest. i have a spectrum micro and the novak and it fits exactly in the footprint of the mugen mtx4 reciever holder. i've modified my NT1 to fit the mugen holder onto the xray CF reciever plate to reduce weight. (you need to drill a hole in the plate, and use a screw to hold the mugen mtx4 cover and the mount).

If you run too much end play in with the clutch, the weights seem to wear/crack on the inside. Try running the clutch bell .2mm off the shoe and .2 for the end play. This seems to have solved the issue I was having and have been running the clutch now for over 2 gallons. If you are using the aluminum clutch bell, after each run, recheck the amount of gap the bell is off the shoe, as the aluminum will wear down.

Have you run the car with the weights in it yet? I also used weights attached with servo tape, and the weights got chucked all over the track. Combine that with a little spilled fuel which dissolves the glue on the servo tape, and you have a mess on your hands.

yep I can definately see that happening best thing maybe is to drill a small hole into the weights and try and put a screw in there are some holes for the xray weights try and use them.
cheers
