actually the bumper PROTECTS IT VERY VERY well... the chasis didnt TWEAK AT ALL! the only parts are broken are:

the upper arm
the lower arm
the shock tower

i think the impact of the crashed was absorb by the bumper thus the chasis was not affected. and immidiately after the impact to the bumper the car swing transfering the impact to the arms and shock tower which are in CARBON GRAPHITE parts... and we all know carbon gaphite parts REALLY REALLY BRITTLE and SENSITIVE to impact and easily will be broken.

. . must get some more of those.

Yep. Brilliant idea. Thats all we ever used when racing 1:8th. Definately keep the seal better and rarely wear out or break.

With the .12's I have been replacing the rubber gaskets maybe twice each meeting from the splitting etc... I recently switched to the Team Titan gaskets and havent had to change one in 2 full days of racing.

I`ve been useing the same GQ Gasket for 4 race meets so far and no leaks, hell you can barely get the header on or off very easy.

Good on ya' - I figured someone else must have thought of it before me.
Your right about the normal gaskets splitting.
It seems to me that the coloured or translucent ones are all pretty weak. The best we found were the black Serpent ones. They have sort of a matt finish and are a bit tougher than all the coloured ones - still nowhere near as tough as the "O" rings, though.
I find if the header isn't aligned exactly right, the gasket will be split in no time - puts too much pressure in one spot. A "springy" mounting wire makes matters worse.
Haven't tried the Team Titan or GQ ones.

BTW, many thanks to rjl and Microsoft.

When I bought a trick bit for my V1rr Evo, it was called Mugen Seike MTX-3. Seroiusly I get this silicon tube stuff for the exhaust joiner from Morris Sugerical. It's pretty durable stuff. I like the old exhaust type setup, not in-line.

The only reason we caught on to the o-ring was that the older JP Rex .21 engines we ran came with them as standard. The Team Titan ones come in red and blue but they are similar in texture to the Serpent ones.

Howard at Titan Racing told me that RD Logics are the importers for the US. Havent seen much about them from their site etc so not sure what the story is.

Gav and rjl,

On the o-rings. You say 2.6mm and 1.8mm "section". I take it that is the thickness of the o-ring, right? Now what ID are each of them and for which size motor?
