Thanks for that. I set the communication happening through our Aussie distrubutor, so I'll wait to hear back through the official channels if there was any advice from David.

Cheers,

Mike.

Dennis,
The last three motors that I have sold I have had to remove the main jet and machine the thread on the needle back about 2mm so that we could screw the main jet in down far enough to achieve the correct needle setting,are the carbs pre set in the factory?
Thanx Ed(Aussie Distributor)

Balloons on their own are not always a foolproof waterproofing idea as we have found many times due to our weather. Condensation builds up inside the balloon and plays havoc with the receiver. Before i even install a receiver on my car I open it up and coat the board with red candle wax to stop any moisture at all getting to it. I then put it back together and after plugging in the crystal and servo/battery leads I pour more red wax in around the connections. A little around the case at the joints can help too. Then i add 2 balloons (one on and then the other the opposite direction) and finally silicone seal and tie wrap the end of the open balloon to make sure nothing runs in through the leads.

Never had any problems with a receiver after doing this even in torrential rain.

Motorman, a couple of questions:

1)What is the 0505 pipe you were using. a RDlogics pipe? I didn't see one on the site that matched that description.

2) why are you guys using the mugens springs. I have the TM spring set and was wonder what a mugen white is compared to as well as a mugen grey.

3) In your car setup, you mention a 40/42 tire setup. Is that 40 shore front and 42 shore rear? Or the other way around? The reason I ask is that I have heard that some folks are running a lower shore on the front.

4) you said you were using 18/52 first gear. Were you using the stock brake and side pulleys or one of the option ones(18 or 20)?

thanks for answering my questions.

Default Motormans setup

He used the 62505 pipe and yes it is a RD Logics pipe.
40 fronts and 42 rears.

I know he ran the stock 19t brake and side pulley as well.

Can't remember what the wire diameter is of a mugen white spring is, I believe it is like a 1.7 and a grey is like a 1.55. Blue and pruple tm springs. They used the mugen springs because the tm springs are about 1 coil too long in the rear to get the desired ride height unless you run 57mm diameter tires.

AFM.. Good post!!! I was going to post the same thing, but... Somethings you just have to figure things out for yourself... If Mongoose owners are thinking about using Mugen springs, the best all around spring front and rear is the Mugen lite blue springs... Some track conditions will call for the purple and some will call for the dark blue springs... Everyones driving style is alittle different and track conditions can with the wind... Remember, one track setup may work on that track and that day, but may not work on another track.. Good thing is the Mongoose/G4 is easy to dial in and set up... Find the right setup for your track... and from there it's just pretty much sway bar adjustments and tire shore choices... Again, AFM Good post about the Mugen spring rate. I've used them and the whole shock set on my G4's from day one... 2003

Thanks, I raced for Mugen for two years and left very unhappy. that is probably why I choose not to remember any that info and would never put a Mugen part on any car I own, I will probably run Delta/Kyosho springs on the rear of my car. I ran grey springs most of the time on my mugen and did not remember them being that stiff.

The rain looks like it is gone for the weekend so I will finally get to run the Mongoose at Revelation this weekend and will be testing some of the running changes on the new RR3 motor as well.
