Most tires are too wide out of the box anyway. Measure a set up for width and you will most likely find them to be up to a mm over IFMAR specs.

When using Fast tires I file the inside edge of the rim on the tire lathe. I use a half moon bastard file and take enough off to bring it to the 26mm and then check for clearance.

I have seen guys cut them with hobby knives on the lathe but it looks a little too dodgy for my liking... I like my fingers where they are.

Yes, the Twister tires looks identical to the Ellegi rims. No problems with the Ellegi rims and I would think Twister rims also not.

Yes. Paul is correct. Then the grub screw goes in on the other side and locks the setting of the screw. Put a little bit of blue locktite on that grub screw so that it does not run loose.

Which one did you loose? A quick way is to get the size and go to the nearest bearing shop and get it.

True. I believe they are plus 0.5 mm too wide on each side of Ellegi tires and on most tires too, they are the same if I'm not mistaken.

But doesn't IFMAR rule already allow up to 1 mm tolerance on the front and rear tires so long as the trackwidth does not exceed 200 mm?

I'm not sure if there was a tolerance allowed. From memory the only manufacturing tolerance allowed was for the stinger diameter.

Hi long time with out writing in this shat (I do read this side every date), we have already five more Serpent 710 in the club all of them change from Mugen to Serpent, I am doing very good with this car.

But I have a question, we have about four member including my car that are having problems with the fuel consumption, in the past we had more than 5 minutes times per tank (5.5 minutes) but all of the members that are using the Serpent 710 has gone down to less than 5 minutes.

We had even a very estrange problem three of us purchase from RC-Mushroom Novarossi plugs 7tf & 6tf and all of the engines that had this plug where having problems the engines were flaming out constantly, we change to OS 7p and the problem disappear.

We have our Centax with the yellow shows, the 1.8mm spring the rest standard, .5 to .6 gap very little end play, fuel 20% to 25% with 11% to 12% oil must of us are using Byron.

We are in summer 80 to 90 F with 50 to 60% humidity.

The engines we are using most is the Nova Max 5 port I am using the RR12 L5 and the Nova Max, one of the expert even purchase a JP FX12 5 port full option and had the same problem .

Do you now what set up or condition can make you increase consumption of fuel.

Great to see them switching to the best car.

I'm no expert, but things like small diameter tyres will increase consumption. Be smooth on the throttle, don't blip unless to settle the car.

Hard to believe you would all have faulty glow plugs. I tried the LRP plug #7 on the last race day and had good performance with it.

Temp and humidity is about the same here at the moment and using 20% nitro with 12% oil is giving me about 7minutes run time on full tyres with a mildly technical track.

You don't mention any 3port engines, what economy are they getting.
