After runing my car last night I notice my rear tires worn out much faster than my fronts which is normal. So now my ride height in the rear is lower due to tire wear. Is it ok to raise the rear ride height, even tho the rear tire's profile is lower than the front? Even if I get new rear tires my tire tread would still be thicker than my fronts so im guessing it should be fine as long as the ride height is the same?

Is it safe to charge my tx batteries if I connect the wires to my Tekin charger while its in the remote socket? Look at attached files. Usually when the charger is NOT connected to the wall I get a volt reading when its connected to the batteries. But when I tested this method out I didnt get a reading. Do I need to charge it first to see if it will actually charge without damaging my radio?

never ran a filter on the old tank,never had any issues.. never saw a factory guy with a filter on at any of the big shows with the 705.. would recommend you just not even worry about it..

must of put 10 or 15 gallons of fuel through the old tanks without any dirt/ motor issues...

Agreed, I have had the same experience, I had engine problems and removed the inline filter. My engines have run perfectly and i have not run one since and am also yet to have any engine issues

your gear ratio will change with the tire wear (your back tires will rotate more than the front)

Should I get new tires for the rear and then swap my old rear tires in later when my front tires are around the same diameter?

i used 37shore in the front and 40 shore in the rear, then i cut the tire downs to 61 mm in the front and 62 mm in the rear and after running the car for about 5 minutes the tires are wearing the same and keeping the 1 mm difference from front to rear

Im guessing higher shore means harder tires since the rear wears out faster. Are you saying that once the rear starts to wear out again(smaller diameter than the fronts) you should cut the front tires?
