Thanks for clearing that up for me.

The flyer says "Gulf Coast Raceway" and the track the race is being held at is "Gulf Coast RC Track"...

Also, see ROAR info: http://www.roarracing.com/region9.php

Plus, there are three Web sites..

1. http://www.mikes-hobbyshop.com
2. http://www.mikeshobbyshop.com
3. http://hometown.aol.com/gulfcoastrct...strctrack.html

And for those that didn't know, there is a Gulf Coast RC Track thread at RCTech.net is here:
http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.p...&page=11&pp=30



Could someone please help Mike clean up his Web sites...?

MY car is almost done. I just have to put an engine in, make the throttle and brake linkage and then setup the car and radio. Paint a few bodies and I am good to go. Brad, Bill and I all come in on Wednesday night on the same flight. See you on Thursday Terry.

Make sure you take it out for a test drive before you fly out. The Kyoshos drive a little differently than the Mugens and I think you're in for a few surprises. Just be sure you have a full selection of diff oils and gears handy.

Also, check that the blue aluminum part of the sway blade is not rubbing on the belt. Not sure if you caught that post in the RRR thread, but you may need to grind it down.

Good luck at the race.

Unfortunately there is no time for a test drive so it will be on the job training for me. I looked at the blue sway bar pivot and it clears with plenty of room. The reason is when I put the sway bar links together I used a longer ball cup in order to make the links a bit longer. I have plenty of room.

One issue I am having is that the rear diff leaks a lot. I may have to take it apart and see if I can find a build issue or get some sealer.

Thanks for the tips.

I use Permatex Blue RTV Silicon Gasket Maker (6B) instead of the rubber o-ring. In addition, I put a dab of silicon in the screw holes before I put in the screws. If you do a neat job, you guarantee that it won't leak.

Mine always leak if I use the rubber o-ring.

Also, here is a separate KB on the Front Diff, that is only posted in the forum.
