Default Maxy Engines and Fuel

Hey Thad, why did you decide to use Maxy's Mod Engines and Fuel? Just curious. He's from around my parts and it's great to see him get the exposure.

It was Hara’s decision.

Maxy is the man! I really enjoyed working with him.

Hmmm interesting. I used the HPI tires that came in the kit and I really liked them, but I cannot seem to get them locally very easily. I might see if I can hunt down one of those 3 brands as I really did like how they worked with the car.

It is interesting what you say about the wheel flex. I thought the objective was to reduce wheel flex, not to increase it............. Would not rim flex make the car less predictable?

Okay, looks like McMaster Carr has what you're looking for. My suggestion is to take the turnbuckle down to the hardware store and find the correct right hand nut that fits. Then you could order the same size in the left hand nut. They sell the 5.5mm left hand nuts for 6.50 for 100 so it's not much money.

Machine Screw and Hex Nuts

Machine Screw and Hex Nut Type
