Yeah my friend says they increased his grip, but I cannot work that out unless the chassis is rolling a whole bunch. He uses grippier tires than me.............

Plus I go so hard into corners with no brakes that my car pushes like a sled (thanks for the HP boost Dennis ) Gotta learn to slow down......

I have a RTU. I am in love with the engine, but you must gear it right. If you dont gear it down from what you normally run then you dont get a major advantage. Gear it down and you will have better corner punch and top end power than any engine out there that I have run against.

As for whether it is worth the extra 100, I dunno. You are not going to win races just because of the extra hp, but it gives you an edge out of corners and in straight line sprints. If you cannot corner then it wont help ya much For me it compensates for my lack of driving ability some

This sucks! I broke the Centax clutch Spring Catch on my RR. Does anyone know if the one for the Kyosho Fantom (part number FM354 ) will fit? If it is, then I canget it from Tower. If not, then I'll have to order it overseas.

Doesn't he?? I never heard that he doesn't, in fact I think he shipped one to like Finland for a guy called HFRacing on the HPI board..............

Anyhow I got mine from a guy on this board called Kaliboy. So I guess I found a loophole Nah, Dennis has even said he would ship me a new piston/sleeve across half the world when I need it so I am happy............
