It's always better to have the confidence that it is maintained properly instead of having an issue that can cause a dnf in a qualifier or main

I went to my hobby shp and they only had RC Racer one-way grease.

Thanks

He won the A main by 1 lap even after chaging tyres!!

I saw the car on the track and it looked like the downstops were screwed in so far that the car would not move down more than 1mm even if you removed the springs!! Is this the answer?

Cheers
You have to cut the Tires down to the minimum.... And the downstop is also very important.

hey mrgsr,

you could try enclosing your receiver into a baloon rubber or an old bike tube rubber etc.

cant say i've ever had fuel noticibly spilt into my receivers, but in the heat of the moment its not uncommon for your pit bitch's to get it over everything else... god love 'em!

Also changing the front roll center can help as well
