There a few little subtle differences. You might just wanna compare them yourself to see which one appeals to you more.

Price would be the major factor though. As you could make the difference up by buying your own hop-ups to match whatever the Border has added, cheaper.

I think its a personal preference. I haven't had any glitches from the antenna being in the stock position. For me, mounting the antenna closer to the receiver makes it less vulnerable to accidents.

Guys, whats up with my damn glow charger. i was having problems in the past so i bought 2 new 1400 mah nicad batteries for it and they keep dying on me. I keep thinking i'm blowing glow plugs but thats not the case. Should i just buy a whole new glow charger? I bought this used.

Thanks,
Mike

I little policy I have when it comes to used items:

Engines-never buy used unless you know the person selling it. With a used engine, you have no proof how it was run or broken in. Some high performance engines do not allow you to change fuels either so you have to find out what fuel to use etc, etc.

Glow ingnitors- if you can't afford to buy a new glow ignitor for $15 and have to but them used. This hobby is not for you. If a person is selling a glow ignotor, it must be on its way out unless the person is getting out of nitro. The batteries in glow ingitors do not last as long as say electric battery packs because they are never correctly discharged and recharged. How many people do you know completely discharge their glow ingitor batteries?

Just some insight for when you are buying used items.

What kind of charger are you using? You might be using an overnight charger and not letting it charge fully. I have an Ofna starter box. I'm not sure if its the same as yours, but mine comes with the front power panel. The glow ignitor is powered by the 12v battery (voltage cut down to 1.5v) You don't need sub c batteries for that.
But what I have been using for several months now is the ofna d cell glow ignitor. Then get some Radio Shack 4000Mah D NIMH batteries. Charge both of them on an overnight charger. Then you will always have glow ignitor power. Once your d-cell goes out, you'll always have a backup. Just remember to recharge the old battery. I haven't had to recharge mine for like three months, but I only race like three or four days out of a month.
Also keep a few old glow plugs that light up but doesn't work too well with your engine. Then if you are unsure about your glow ignitor just test it on a known working glow plug. You'll know if you're outta juice then.

Default Fuel tank leaking under pressure?

Anyone else experience this? Seems under throttle fuel leaks from the lid of the tank.

Not sure if there is a way to fix it, or if I just have a defective seal on the tank in which case I need to replace the whole tank correct?

Could this be from the pressure line running from exhaust to tank being to short?

And before anyone asks yes the lines are hooked up right!

Thanks

You should really read our previous posts. We have covered the steering problems numerous times. Get yourself an MTX-3 battery for your G4 here.

Well first of all are you going to be racing it??? Then you have to meet roar standards. They have specific places and sizes. The most poplular body that racers use is the Stratus, Mazada, and the Alfa (which is my favorite). IF you are going to just bash or race outlaw the best body for speeeeed is a Lola or GTP body. Awesome downforce!!!!


Anyway here's a body SHOPUFO just painted for me........

Well that body is nice but i am wondering where i can cut the holes to get the best cooling. I get to race this sunday for my first time ever and i'm going to be using the stratus 2.1 or the vauxhall vectra. I have it fitted on the chassis just wondering where i should cut the holes to cool the motor so i can stay legal.

Thanks,
Mike
