Put a drop on the screw and put it in before the glue hardens. That way it fills the thread in both the plastic and the screw.
It will get you by until the first crash.

But on cooler areas like the UK were we rarely see over 12degC at best of times 16% can actually make the engine perform better. Nitro requires high temps to combust so in cold temps excess nitro content doesnt benefit as it lays in the cylinder. Due to not getting full combustion this reduces the power of the engine for starters and also after a while induces the engine to start ceasing (vapour-lock) or running iratically. This is one of the most common reasons for constant flameouts.
30% would be more beneficial for us racers in hot country...now thats a relieve. Pheww..thanks there Palmaris. hmmm thinking of getting the trinity platinum 30% nitro...is this a good one for my NovaMax with #6Tf plug?

I wish my lhs can do like this but they dont. if i ask them whats the castor content..they don't know either. but i understand..they just do selling thanks for the tips though.

They are not woven carbon fiber. They are called Silver Surface Graphite or in short SSG. Apparently more flexible and therefore they need to be made thicker for rigidity.

Trying to mix your own fuel is expensive in Malaysia. Especially since nitromethane is VERY hard to come by not to mention BLOODY expensive ! Apparently, it is a controlled substance here.

1thing to consider when you race this car, your mechanic must not spill the fuel. Since it was very wide open on that area.

Just my idea.

I am almost used to having my batery showered somehow.... My mechanic always spills. i wish serpent had made the tank sit on top of just the chassis like in a NTC3 for example.

I guess you cannot please all people all the time... I think Serpent had primarily targeted to put the heavy weight parts to be closest to the centerline of the car and closest to the center. This makes for reduced polar moment (car is more nimble and shifts left to right and vice versa faster) and lower CG due to placement of the heavy weight parts as low as possible can.

me too but by myself ..luckily the battery not spoilt. The only thing to do is just wrapped the battery. so far after hard race, the battery is still ok.

Sorry all, I only mean the receiver top side, not the whole car.
The option part seems not covering that area.

If the SSG parts are suppose to be thicker due to it being more flexible, would it still be lighter than the stock parts?

No idea but looking at the weight posted (pretty close to stock), weight additions from the aluminum parts and weight savings from the titanium shafts even out leaving the SSG parts to be about the same weight as the stock graphite ones... Just guessing here.

I must admit that the SSG parts look cool, but I also like the carbon fibre look. If there is no real weight saving, then the only reason to get SSG parts woulf be the look.
