Do you have a brand that makes that lube? I've been searching for something like that... it seems it's more sticky then the teflon grease from Robbe/Graupner...

When I get home tonight I will let you know the brand. There are several to choose from and the one i'm using may only be available in Australia.

With sedan body shell I'd go with 30K. Running with Lola body tends to have more rear bites, causing it to understeer, therefore it needs heavier diff oil.

BTW, are you watching the Orange Bowl at the moment ?

Hi _cyclops_
Just to let you know about the lube.
Brand: TRI-FLOW
Description: Superior Dry Lubricant with Teflon
It's a wax based formula, but it is very thin.
In Australia it's available from good Pushbike shops $14.95 for a 59ml container.

From what i read, the 30000 should be good. But is the mugen diff oil the same as the X-ray diff oil?

Has anybody compared diff oils from different teams?

Good point about the body.

I was watching the game but it got boring in the 3rd quarter so I went to bed. I guess I missed the exciting part.

Default Sway Bar

Has anyone tried an RRR front sway bar on their 710? If so, what do you think?

I tried it last night and I had a lot of steering but the car was a little difficult to drive but it may have been the track.

I heard a certain top driver and a certain 710 designer are already working on it.

New Mega ZX12 Conrod (by Picco)

Hiu Guys

We have the latest conrod by Picco. Now, beside having awesome performance at a very good price level, we have also reliability. We have already stock of rods as spare parts. The engines we have in stock (both engine only and Powerpack) will be supplied with the old conrod installed (we reccomend to use it only for breaking in the egine) and the new one as a spare at no extra cost. After we sell all our inventory, the new batch will come with the new one already installed.
