Default Best Trick Part

What's the best value trick bit that you have found?
The best thing I've found is Kawahara wheel nuts, they never come loose and they don't seem to wear out.
The GPM exhaust springs are about the best I've used.
You know those little box wrenches you get? I have one that came with a Marui Big Bear that refuses to wear out, the one part that didn't.

The best trick part I found was to use "O" rings instead of those squishy silicone exhaust gaskets. They last for ages.
. . must get some more of those.

Now that is the best one I've heard ever! Having seen o-rings that does not even change shape up to 350 DegC, let alone melt, I'm wondering why I never thought of doing the same as you Taylor-Racing.

Can you post a pic of that?
Do you just put an "O" ring on instead of the gasket?

you would think that your header would touch inside where the exhaust outlets inside it,it would probbly seal it but your gonna have metal to metal somewhere.unless they manage to stay perfectly aligned.unless you put a smaller o-ring on the inside?

Sorry, I'm without a digicam but have attempted a pic below.

I just use two different types/sizes of "O" ring.
Two of the small 1.8mm section black ones ("Nitrile", I think) and a larger 2.6mm section orange one at the base of the exhaust outlet. This one is "Viton", if I recall, but I could have the two materials mixed up.

Anyway the smaller ones prevent the metal to metal contact mentioned and the larger one takes the compression forces from the exhaust spring.

The "O" rings are particularly tough and you can happily use two manifold springs that would normally just separate the flange part from a normal gasket in a couple of heats.
They are still affected by fuel etc. but last a whole lot longer than the normal silicone ones. I buy these at any local bearing supply and they're a few dollars for a handfull.
