Default Re: silicone pipe

ine thingg to be sure ou do is clean the pipe, & manifold inside and out with some motor spray, dont forget the coupler also. I usually double tie wrap my pipes, then cover it with that thermatape (dynamite stuff). When you reassemble the pipe, be sure to try and center the whole thing in the coupler. that should do it.

another thing you might try is to flare out the pipe and manifold, use a screw driver or pliers to flare it out.

Good luck

Rich

Lay Down shock position: more body roll, more grip

That's from Serpent X-ray Set up book, pretty good article! you can find it in Serpent X-ray site.

NR: i had lower throttle servo mod when I first had my MTX2 2 years ago but now I switched back to "upper" throttle servo. I dont like the servo touching on the main chassis.

I have another question. The spring and collar on your linkage. Won't that apply the brakes when you open up the throttle?

We don't race with fuel down under, our tracks are all downhill, we push the cars and watch them roll
