Best tric part Kyosho rims they are awesome much better than anything else I've seen and are in fact cheaper than most. I have only buckled one rim ever and all my set of rims have had a few sets of tyres which have been driven for liters and liters of fuel untill the tyres fall apart.

I had a "Pilot" brand hot pocket that was the best ever, went racing one day and haven't seen him since. I had had it for years and it never let me down, been through heaps since and they just don't last as long. Might have had something to do with the fact it was pink.

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?
Yes, by "section" I mean thickness.
The part numbers for the ones I buy are:
Viton 013
Viton 112

What I did was to take a crankcase and a header down to the local bearing supply and try a few on for size. These are for a Nova .12 engine and the ID isn't absolutely critical. I'm guessing the ID is probably 1 - 2mm smaller than the exhaust outlet, but they stretch over the wider section without a problem.The main issue is to ensure that the two smaller section ones are a snug fit when you install the header.
The larger one is essentially a second seal and something to take the compression forces exerted by the spring. It ends up fitting nicely into the radiused opening of the header, but it's too large to go inside the header when mounted.
Also, the newer Nova engines have a machined surface on the exhaust outlet but older ones are left as cast and exhibit a little flashing. I just file this flashing off and blend the surface in to avoid a possible leak.

Well there ya go. All these seasoned racers around and we're still using these crappy silicone items.

. . sounds like a market opening for DUDY, that inovative new Oz company.

Didn't work quite as well on the goat - seemed to restrict blood circulation somewhat, but it it sure didn't leak.

carbon fibre decal on the hood and wing of my car. lightened my car by 150g and i saw an increase of 10-15 mph. AMAZING!!!

seriously though, the best trick part IMO is a ball diff. pretty common nowadays but still so awesome. adjustable without messing with silicon fluids and much lighter than gear diffs.
