I went to their Web site and the 2611 seems to be the only pipe they have in their catalog for .12 engines.

I've never tried this before - and I don't know if the end of the pipe is solid or not - but I wonder if you could grind off some of the tip? Is it just touching or overlapping. If it's overlapping, by how much?

I really need to find a damaged pipe and grind off the end and see.

Thanks for your help just spoke to a team driver in italy and in fact he told me to move the pipe spring slightly back and grind part of the tip off if need be.

email Adam, as im not sure when they will resume normal trading. or you can try to ring and leave a message.

Engines..... Novarossi, sirio, and OS are all good choices.
the new OS 12xz is quite reliable and very good for beginner to experienced racer. and quite cheap with parts as well.

personally i use Futaba Servos, something in the BLS range (brushless) they are very reliable.

Default TANK STRAP??????????

I have been using the tank strap all the way to the rear tower for a long time [email protected] my last race I tried the loop method WELL i forgot to tell my pit man that and he had a very hard time gitting the hang of that during the race LOL.
was just wondering what you guys think of the loop hanging out of the front window. and what you all were using to be the fastest in the pits??????

The best way is the one that have the strap that goes all the way to the shock tower.

I have been doing it like that since the 710. Does that put added stress to the fuel tank cap?

I believe it does, but never have a problem since my 710 either, but as long as it is looped under the Anti Roll over bar it should be fine.

I think the strap back to the tower is faster most of the time. I see people that use the loop have to add a step to their pitting. they either bring it to their chest or put it on the ground.

See you on Friday Pete,
