Have you try on the Blue rear spring from Falcom ? and do you have that part number as well ?
It's the red Fantom rear spring: FM369-1.7; hardness of it is in between the RRR front silver and rear gold. I've found out the the front silver at the back seemed just a little bit too hard, hence the Fantom red spring. I've yet to try it out tho, hopefully I'll be able to give the car a spin this weekend.

I believe you're referring to the light blue Fantom springs, similar to the one shown in the RRR Evo kit? The part no. is FMW13-5318, did think of trying that one but it seems to me that the rating of the spring is not that different from our RRR gold rear spring, would rather play with the shock oil than to get another set of spring of ALMOST similar in characteristics...that's just me... Maybe you'll find the chart attached useful. Don't bother trying out springs from Serpent/Mugen, they don't fit, their inner diameter of the coil is a lil bit too small for our shocks.

If they have the items in stock, they will ship it right after payment is received. Also, EMS shipping is what they will quote you and use so you will get the items in just few days. I have bought from them for the last two years and not a single problem.

Default 2nd pinion gear removal

Quick question... I'm having great difficulty removing the 2nd pinion gear from the clutch bell, I can't see any way around completely bending the clutch bell to remove it... any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi,
You can heat it up with a heat gun. Be carefull, do not overdo it, because then the gear will be very sensitive and it may break.

No prob...

I would try the yellow rear, but you could first try the RRR short silver (IF you have it ) to at least have an idea how it handles, that's what I normally do, if I like it then I would proceed on getting a different spring to continue experimenting. In my opinion, the yellow front would be too hard for my liking. It's pretty subjective since the usage of different springs really depends on the type of traction the track you run on and also your driving style.

No worries - same for me + lots of race weekends and then seeing Girlfriend during the week - man I'm so tired I could sleep a week

Hi Soloartist,

I usually notice the 1/8 cars with a "chamber/ filter housing" on the inlet from the tune pipe to the fuel tank. What's the purpose for it and why the need to put it on your 1/10?

I assume to staybalize pressure, but with what result?

Thanks!

That sounds like it would work, but with no heat gun or hair dryer I'm wondering if there is another way.

There seems to be two holes for a special tool or something, does anyone know about this?

I'm about to buy a new bell, removing this gear seems impossible.

BTW, the gear is rooooted so I dont care about damaging it.
