Hi Harry! Yes I did figure it out. I had some shock troubles, ( I let my 15 year old build the shocks , and they were'nt very smooth). Also the chassis was purchased off e-bay, and it was actually a template used for making the chassis's. Jay had sold it to a guy who was not suppose to resale it!! But did anyway!
I have reworked the chassis some and fixed the problem. The BMI Chassis for sale on the market is not the exact same as the one I purchased, the true chassis tweaks perfectly.

I have never used the LD3 pipe, I can't get any deal on them and have to pay full price for them, the RD pipe cured all the troubles we had with the engine/car combos so I have just stuck with it.
I believe in the beginning when the LD3 came out they purchased a bunch of RD pipes for the team to use on the car, so I'm sure it's close in design .

I think I stripped/blew up my rear diff(Must be the power from my JP .12 RS12). Whenever I turn the axle, I could hear a clicking sound. Does "The Fix" prevent this from happening again? Where can I get "The Fix"?

Also, anyone know what size the hex is on the screws that secures the radio box? Is it 0.050"?

I use a Richey RTU MT and a Palmaris Racing MT's, Richey RTU Sirrio, and Smeltz Racing Sirrio's. All the above are good engines, just depending on what track as to what to use. The MT's seem better for long track and the Sirrio seem better for short track. The Sirrio seems to have better bottom and mid for short tracks.
I have a new MT that Palmaris Racing built for us that has his new piston/sleeve and rod design in it for short track racing that seems to be very promising. .

Default Cincy track

you can go to tri state rc auto racers website and post in the forum to get setup info on the hamilton track. Another option is competitor setup sheets from the worlds.

Murman also has some very good modified Sirios. I have seen a smeltz and was not impressed with the workmanship. The Murmans are alot nicer a are extremely fast. Here is the link to his page where you can purchase one.

My Smeltz Sirio rocks!! It has a bunch of bottom and mid torque. The Richeys, basically speaks for itself! Ballistic!!!!!!

Top GUN 777 in the engine forum can hook you up with Palmaris Racing engines.
Dennis Richey does little to no public engine work any more. He has develope a new engine which will be dist. by RD LODGICS in the near future.
Smeltz only modds to his past customers I think he's been sick and does only limited work.
