I had in excess of 30, decided to rather not and say I did. CONGRATS to the new DADIO mr Marcos....

I got my Dri Slide the weekend, and what I can say is wow. put it on the pinion, and put it on the belts, and on all the ball joints. WOW. my car is now smoother and rolls freer than it did. I will put it on the thrust bearings and I will use it on the diff. I love this stuff. it is a dry powder. VERY slick.

Pyramid

Whats that stuff you put on the end of your pipe? Its looks like some kind of cement thing, does it protect your pipe from bending inwards from side impacts?

HOLY COW... I know they are both close to me. There are a few. One I like in Woodmead which is about a half an hours drive from Emerentia, it is called Aerial Concepts. PM me for their number, they dont really specialise in cars, but I get my fuel from them, there is one in Weltefreden Park with a track, called Ultimate hobbies, their website is www.ultimate.co.za. Personally, I find that it is WAY cheaper to get all my components from either RC-Mushroom, or tower hobbies and pay express shipping. What will you be shooting?

Yup, been so busy at work, I struggle to go to the loo. How long were you off?

Dri Slide... It is a dry molybdenum-graphite grease. this stuff is slick, and it goes on with a liquid carrier, http://www.drislide.com/ This is GOOD stuff. I got 4 bottles, this stuff will last me a while.

Whoa...I guess it's alot cheaper to get stuff from where I am(Malaysia) then... I guess I'll be too busy to visit any LHS either... We're gonna shoot a spot for an airline and the location and weather there is perfect for the spot. Btw, is it cold over there?

Cold... For us... YES, but it is not too bad, it is between 10 to 15 Degrees Celsius. They have been expecting it to get a bit colder as I hear there is a cold front on the way. but it has been beautifully sunny though. IT is a lot cheaper where you are, but I have not seen any serpent parts locally, I know there is a guy who sells, but I have not met him yet, not broken anything.

I was thinking of getting a new pipe. Not sure if I should get the Shark pipe or stick with my Nova pipe. Whats the difference between these two? I hear that Shark pipes sucks up more fuel? The only thing that I like about the shark pipe is that it doesnt bend. I hate it when my pipe bends

Here is a pic of the track that I race at, which pipe would you recommend for this track?

So far, my new Serpent rear CF shock tower has lasted me.
Is serpent including this newer and thicker rear shock towers in the new kits?

Thanks
