I heard spektrum says not to use those with it's receiver nontheless any TX/rx system. The standard packs run rather well anyway.

WOohoo April 19 is the first start of my race season and I've already got the Hudy guages on order! Now time for the tire truer and foams. The new THS pipe will be in shortly and I'll have that and an RB C5 as a backup.

I saw the final THS prototype last week for the 1/8th scale hard-coated pipe with a conical manifold and it looks awesome. The performance has already been proven in my eyes. Can't wait to run final product. It should be here before April...fingers crossed.

Oh yeah definately! I saw it also yesterday at Tony's. It makes me want to ditch mine now, and get the new THS. However I'm going to run the top and older ths pipe now, and then swap to the C5 and newer THS later. Right now, Hudy guages are on order, then I'll try the spider tyres. If they are great, I'll buy the bunch of them. They work really well for sedan so I have no doubt that they'd work for 8th onroad.

a 1400 lasts over an hour easy so there is no need for a bigger capacity battery,

btw are lipos lighter?

Lipo's are lighter, but I think you got to run a regulator.

I was rebuilding my car last night and noticed my 2 front shocks are of different length when mounted on the car. At first I thought something was wrong with one of the shocks but when I checked them they were okay. Upon further inspection I realized that Mugen had modified the design of the front lower arm and the shock mount position is slightly different (further out) compare to the original arms that came with the kit.

Thus if you ever replace your front lower arm from stock you should check and if necessary replace both to keep the suspension even.

Default TIRES!!!

I just have a choice of 37 shore foams available for me at $25 a set. Most racers like 35 shore. I'm getting these for a sick price....basically 6.50 or so a tire. Anyone think I can go with them before they ship them back? These are spider tyres..my LHS brand of foams. Racers like them, but most are biased towards other brands. He can't change them to 35 shore so it's 37 only. Should I go with them or what?
