Cheers.
The pics of Salvins car are on post 3634

I did not know that the gear holders for both cars were the same. Then I see your point. I'm not keen on using 1/8 scale size parts on a 1/10 scale. I would like to see a smaller 2-speed shoe assembly. Loosing(decreasing) the adaptor was nice. The reason the shaft on the 966 diameter was increased was some thought the shaft was deflecting under load. I don't think thats happening on 1/10 scale side. Maybe Mr Kimbrow can shed some light onto the subject.


Pass you soon...

Hi Patto
just letting you know that some at serpent told me that the new side brace is also coming with the SL6.What rx batteries do you run in the 733 and also thinking outside the square about trying to copy the link system from the 966 TE if possible.Last but not least any ideas on the alumimium clutch bells (performance wise)

i use the Life 1450 pack. no fuss lasts all day kind of pack. havent tried the alloy bell, i dont have any problems with the std 733 clutch , it always works for me. untill the Wa states, the 966 clutch i had issues with. but possibly i put that down to the light weight bell, warpage, and partly working on the shoe. but have since gone back to std clutch for the 966, and its back to its best.

quick question anyone out there know when the SL6 gearbox is coming,also do you need to buy another shaft or does it fit the current one. the new DLS shafts are they a new part or just a spare part.
