Hey now, bro...I also own an MRX-3 and XR, you hurt their feelings! BTW, yes that was a Lunsford ti hingepin in that pic I attached. I'm gonna' send it off in an envelope to Lunsford and request a replacement pin, since they're supposedly 'warrantied' against bending/breakage, lmfao. They can keep that arm, too!

Try and get either a new screw, or use some time of sealent on the screw.

Default Re: pivot balls

Would not a locknut help? Perhaps with a thin washer between the nut and the end of the arm so that the nut won't dig into the plastic?

Just a thought...

OK, THATS IT, I'm moving to Auzzie!

What are the handling traits of the car (what would you like to change)? So how's the traction?

Anyone have an idea where I can find the following items:

1731 - Shims for HD One Way
1732 - Ring Gear for HD One Way

Both my LHS and Tower Hobbies have no idea what I'm talking about when I try to order them.

Thanks!

-Jeff

Default Fastharry...

I know that you were talking about the pillow balls, since I can not get them yet since TIR has not started production I can only give witness to the parts that I have. I have the Pillow balls and screw set on order even before their factory had a fire break out. In vain I am still waiting for both parts, then my NTC3 will be complete with the TIR upgrades. Sorry for the confusion I was merely giving my opinion on the fitment and finish of TIR products. I am still using the oem AE pillowballs that I polished with Blue Magic metal polisher, good stuff by the way(not the AE pillowballs,LOL).

Okay guy looks like I bought the new chassis from Jim Reeves. I will have to go back to the AE or K-factory fuel cell. Did I read back awhile ago that some people had trouble with the K-tank and the RD Lodgics pipe? Something about melting the fuel outlet or fitting maybe? Thanks BB

I have had the RD Logics pipe for some time now and couldnt be happier. some people have had problems with the header being close to the fuel exit thingie on the tank, however i have yet to expeariance such problems (although it is close, it hasnt affected my run time, engine temp, or hurt my engine tuning). Also use a .15 big block gasket, or else it might leak slightly.
