Also the mounting position is quite different between the blade roll bar and the other. The standard mounts to the balls molded into the arms where the blade bolts onto the front of the front arms and is adjustable.

Hey all I found this on RCnitrotalk.com I thought that it was a good idea so i'd like to pass it on.

Tired of paying the outrageous prices for NitroBlast?
Here is the answer. A rechargeable Aerosol can.
You can fill it up with Denatured Alcohol or any liquid you wish. Holds up to 16 oz. Use a foot pump, tire pump or compressor to charge it up to 60 PSI. The unit comes with 4 changeable tips of different spray patterns or use one from an empty can you have around the house.

You can get it from Harbor Freight (Item number 01102) for $9.99


Note all info is from RCnitrotalk.com

Thanks J.

Sure that sounds good.

Want something easier and cheaper? Buy a pump spray bottle at Walgreens or CVS for about $1.00 fill it with denatured alcohol for about $3.00 a quart at Home Depot. Now all you do is to spray it on the same as you did with Nitro Blast.

My LHS doesnt have any Stealth Lub for the Diff's. Someone told me I could use vaseline (Petroleum Jelly) to put on the diffs. Is that true or are they just messing with me?

I'm trying to rebuild my diffs, but i dont have any lube.

My friend did that and it actully worked quite well, except that it was too loose for him. If you try it you will have to shave part of the bottom of the rear diff case, as it gets in the way of the blade. It might work on a very high traction track.

Thanks,

Your LHS should have it.

I just got my Fix and haven't installed it in place of my old-fashioned fix (lower-case f). Did you find the instructions on here for them?
