well before he used to do it, but he was good at it, at the track there no BS, but here I thought it was because of the oneway he was just accelerating on the turn too much. i got my solid axle ready just in case we set the track differently...

Klander I carefully tighten the screws as said in the manual. The rest was done after running the car around a bit.
This is what I got:



We'll see if it works.

No, not yet. Still waiting. It was shipped today, but it had the wrong address on it. I don't know how long it will take for it to bounce back to the sender, and then for the sender to send it back to the correct address. It's my fault, though, I had the wrong address in my paypal.

If anyone has an HPI Nitro Star .12R, I would be able to tell if my header will work if I knew how far from the bottom of the mounting flange the exhaust is. But I doubt anyone here has that motor, you all sound way too fast for it!

sorry bud... wish you should have joined our group earlier... Now all we can do is wait to see if you can use it... the thing is I don't know how the header will affect the side belt, maybe you can lower the tensioner... but I'm just guessing... or maybe you can get higher engine mounts or fix it some how to be a bit higher...
