Yea the spring works though its so stiff you cant really call it a servo saver anymore. I may just get rid of it all together and trim the top plate a little and put a GS servo saver on the servo.

The car runs much better with the tank rework too but the fuel still looks like its in a blender when you rev it up. As long as the bolts touch the chassis the orings that isolate the tank are basically useless. ( gt's dont shake the tank like this thing does, well not as bad, must be the north south mounting of the engine) I think I will switch to a different style tank all together so I can suspend it on grommets and posts and get it Isolated from the chassis. The cg will go up a little but Its hard to tune an air bubble. LOL

Its a small price to pay for a car that drives and accelerates as good as this thing does.

Ben the SX12 EV1 is identical to an RB X12. short rod, non turbo crank,standard plug. EV2 has the turbo crank like an non turbo RS 12 but it has a turbo plug. and the EV2 MS has the teflon backplate with replaceable inserts for the carb. All the Nova Megas are short rod.

Or the other way around is to say it is the same as the mt 12 with the exception of the case and the rod. The head and finset are a little different but they all interchange and the combustion chambers are literally Identical too.

harry werent they doing that for heat transfer?? I saw some with heat sink compound on them at FT Myers. I didn't ask why they were doing it? I guess if they are recommending silicone must not be for heat transfer. Why did they say they were doing it.

Seems to me that if you could take a couple of posts off an HPI car (the ones between the deck ) you could bolt the rear post in the rear tank mounting hole and drill and countersink a new one in the front for another post and mount a serpent tank right on them with grommet Isolaters. Might have to put a square hole in the chassis for the bump in the bottom of the tank to sit in and give it a little clerance. Then bolt an Impulse or impact tank on it. Heck then you could use the new afl fuel cap. This is probably what I will do to mine. I would like to get the tank a little further from the hot exhaust header if I could anyway.

Heat transfer compound greatly improves the heat transfer, on computers if you don't use it between the chip and the heat sink the cpu will fry, I think it's at least 10X more efficient than bare metal transfer. I thought it's not entirely a good thing to remove heat from the crankcase? Isn't it desirable to remove heat only from the combustion chamber?

Yeah, I picked up an NTC3. I was a little hesitant at first. I'm still holding on to both of my GT4s in case I can't get the NTC3 to handle well. As a matter of fact today was the first day I got to run my car. The car turned in well with a push coming out of the turns. It's an easy fix but my fingers were to numb to do any wrenching. It was in the 50's which wasn't too bad but the wind really made it hard on my hands. The car accelerated well but you had to really listen to the 2spd kick in. This car has amazing acceleration and handles very well. It looks like my GT4's may be gathering dust this season.

Servo saver spring

What's up gang, can someone give me the exact part number for the slipper clutch spring that is used for the servo saver? I think someone mentioned it a while back...I'm just to lazy to look for it. Thanks.

Ya I know what you mean.I had a hell of a time adjusting the two speed cuz it shifted so smooth I could not quite tell where even if it shifted.Now I can tell but I have to listen close and have no other cars running to blank out the slight change in tune.
I also noticed the Pit tyres are working well in the cold 20's and 25's
