That's the optional transponder mount stefanos.

I mounted mine just in front of the front bulkhead. Just to give me a little edge in a close finish

Not that it would really make much of a difference for my driving skills

The bigget problem i have had so far is with the 2 speed. When i first assembled it, the 2 speed carrier would not spin at all. There was alot of burs inside that needed to be sanded and in the end it came good. Also the screw in the 2 speed were an issue, but this has all been documented in this thread before

Thanks for the tip... Steering rack is now done. But all came to stop now as F1 GP is about to start.

Will see if RBR car stays together for Webber

Thanks

Another good pipe is the Skyline VR12 Plus , its highly reccomened on the forums here at rctech. Im running it and so far its the best pipe ive run. As well its the only pipe that can survive my driving and the track we run on.

Good benefits of the pipe are high durability , good power output on a high range of motors , good mpg , good wide powerband (good top - good low). The other benefits I like of it , is its good price and its got one incredible shine from the box.
