You know checking the height of the tank lid, it almost looks higher than on the 4, so back and up, I triple checked on my Stratus shell, best I can get away with I recon is 8-10mm onto the roof, for a club shell with bottle refueling I'd say it will do the job, I think, only one way to find out.


Those wheel carbon disks look trick, I'm just not sure I can justify the bling cost.

If it was only just a few bucks in it Tomas EMS would be fine, but it's more than that

Retro...


Built and ready to go this weekend, kind of wish I could use the Ninja head in the pic, but it won't cool worth a damn on my Nova engine, which sucks two ways cause the budget Nova comes with 10 fin head that won't let you run your body shell low...

If it fits, you can run it. It will cool it the same, but will read higher temps due to the probe being closer to the glow plug (just like the new PT and PTS).

Infrared temp gauge reading off the plug basically from a fixed point/distance being the hole in the body shell, it's going to take the same reading off that spot regardless of the head, and from memory I also did readings off the engine block to confirm, engine did run 'considerably' hotter trying to run the old Mugen Ninja head.

Someone on the day told me the Ninja heads were not real great, I think the only reason they worked on the GRP based engines is someone also told me they ran cool...

Funny how you notice some things in final checks and body fitting, I have become quite aware of how much the new 5 can flex, it's actually almost scary compared to what I remember on my 4, but you can pick up the 5 and just light squeeze from head to grab handle and it moves a fair bit, grab chassis at both ends and it will twist and flex a whole heap in places, it's no stiff plank like the old car could be.
