Horizon will replace that broken spektrum receiver you should get it out of the bin .

I did the same thing to a couple of mine last year before i got the atomic box.

I was also thinking of getting the top deck that allows me to use the NT1 fuel tank to make low needle adjustments easier.

Do you think they actually would replace it, even myself living overseas (EU) ? Thanks

They can be installed on either side...... Cant remember off the top of my head but basically you have 6 adjustments depending on if the eccentric is on the left or right hand side.

Oh just remembered I had a manual here at work.

If you follow the manual you will see that having the R on the right in position 1 is the loosest belt tension. You then go up to position 2 and then 3. This is making the belt tighter.

From there you switch them around to the other side and 1 is the next tightest still with 2 and 3 being the tightest settings.

Hope that makes sense.

I normally run mine with the Left on the left and the right on the right and in position 3 when I have a new belt and then go tighter from there as the belt loosens up.

yeh, i need the 58g ybslow plate to get it to 1725.

1650-1660g + 58g (minus the current plate 9g) = 1708-1718g.

probably, but the best way is easily work out what you need and get kyosho titanium screws in packs , it will have them listed in the back of the rrr manual, they are by far the best quality
