If you don't want to spend that much money for your first truer, I have an Integy with a Hudy carbide blade I will sell you. It would probably cost a fortune to ship. I can't believe how the shipping was for that sway bar. I think I still owe you a few bucks.

You can cut the 2 front side windows out completely and the whole rear window.

Not sure about the arrows on the rear wing. didnt pay that much attetion to be honest. I normally just bolt down the 2 outer ones. Its only marginal but every extra screw adds weight and annoys the airflow
Thnx

do you use the extra two vertical wings for the rear wing? do you glue them on the rear wing or use screws to hold them?

Spend 10% of the money you spent on all those hop ups on a tyre truer and you will get the 2-3 secs per lap you are looking for!!

I dont normally use the extra vertical wings. I run mainly on a very fast flowing track and found that they werent required. I only use them if I am running on a technical track. Best way is too glue them on to a spare wing and try both ways to see which one works best for you.

if you glue them isn't easy for them to break in case of crash, maybe easier than screw them on the wing.

Ok so out of all the hop ups what parts actually improve perfomance and why? I would like to see a list something like this

3 racing front roll bar holders.

Advantage
Improves front response.
Improves lap times

Disadvantage
Grub screws come loose



SP Belts

Advantage
Lower friction
Improves lap times
Use for qualifying


Disadvantage
Stretch and wear out quickly

That way you can see what parts can improve lap times and others that are bling or only to be used on certain tracks or at certain times.

I suppose this post should be put in the RRR UE thread right?

Get the 1000mAH one and the same reg that Glenn Cauley used in his article.
I will also post some pictures at 3hobby.net soon on how I installed the LiPo in my 710.

cheers,
Sorry for the delay in answering. This is what you want for #1:



http://www.stormerhobbies.com/

Part # HPI74100 HPI Universal pinion gear wrench for 2-speed clutch bells

I just bought one.

Not sure what you mean by #2.. My outdrives are constantly coming out, so I decided to by the K-Factory Oneway.

I just bought the Hudy Excellent Tire Truer w/arbor. OMG. I think I'm going to be sick.... Excuse me, I'll be right back...

I would say, that this is my first reluctant R/C purchase. It it were $200-300, it wouldn't be so bad. But $500!

Well, now I think I have eveything I could ever need...

Uh, except . . .

I better keep that list to myself...

The SP belts comes standard on the WCE, but I guess you could consider it an upgrade if you're just running the standard RRR.

As far as the rollbar holder goes, how would you best describe how it improves handling? Does it provide additional tuning options?
