And where does one buy a BRCA homologated pipe? I smell money to be made here...
it does not say BRCA Homologated.
The BRCA approved list includes a much wider range than the very restrictive EFRA list, so pipes are not a problem, they should however be of a Dual Chamber design with a Stinger of at least 10mm in length and an outlet hole no larger than 5.2mm.

Try to file down the header a little for some clearance should be O.K

Great job Ron!
Thanks Peter and CONGRATS back to you too...

You had a very good run yourself !!! Your RRR was working
excellent all weekend and most especially on the main(s)...
Cant help but acknowledge how this car is a "TANK" for it to hold
up running that long, huh..?

Hopefully with guys like you, Jeff and Alex, more and more people
would start running this car locally in our area ...

Default Battery pack

Are there any alternatives to using the Kyosho battery pack. I would like an alternative as I haven't seen this particular pack yet.

Cheers, Mark.

It's a standard 5 cell flat pack. The same as mugen 1/8th scale, NTC3, and Traxxas Revo. I think they could have made a better battery like the serpent, just laid down. That probably would have made the car underweight though.

My car wasn't working until the first main Sunday. I didn't start the first qualifier and I only ran 2 minutes in the second. The car was good, I just didn't get a chance to qualify it. The motor I planned to use, broke on Saturday and I was forced to use the O.S.

Yeah, tell me about the car being a TANK! Our cars went through 80 minutes of racing each.

Your car looked like it was working good from where I saw it

Actually, a few of the guys used and played around with my car
for another half an hour or so after the mains. Believe or not, we
put in another battery pack on the car so they could keep on
running it. And the only time we pulled it in was when they said:

"Man this car has a bad push !"

Well, it was pushing because it was not running with JACO Tires...
it had JACO Plastic RIMS !!
