-Anybody come up with a way to protect that exposed reciever from impact?

-Where do you guys get parts from. I don't mind doing mail order, so thats not an issue. I just need to know that I can find G4 or Mongoose parts if/when I need them.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

The new steering is slightly hit the front belt but I never experienced a broken front belt. Last race I even got bored and replace it with the new one Never looked someone broke the receiver also on the track. Although we're covering the receiver but only from the fuel and dirt.

Thanks for all the help! I can feel the Cars Potential but the Clutch has a Few bugs to Work out. Seems like I better get the Clutch bell Play to .1 .2mm Compared to the 1/16 Inch that I have Now. Hopefully This wll keep the Weights from Hanging up, Hoefully my weights were getting Slung out too Far. I will let you guys Know.

Mine doesn't have holes either, I just take everything out when I need an adjustment.
If you want to make the hole, that's fine but make sure you don't damage the part on the bell that touch the clutch shoe.

I think that you need a flanged bearing, to make sure put everything together and make sure that you can't take it out from the top.
The front shocks and the rears are the same, all four shocks should feel the same, then if you already put them into the car and the car feel stiffer in the front, it's ok.

Rd Logics carries all the parts for the Mongoose. They also made a financial commitment to support the car. If your driving an R40 now you will love the responsivenes to the car. The current steering rack system in the car is okay. It requires some maintenance beyond a standard bell crank system, but it shouldn't hold you back from buying the car. The car really shines on high bite fast tracks. It's low center of gravity makes it feel like your driving a carpet car on asphault!

Default Spring sets

RD Logics Sells a complete spring set for the car. They work great!! They may not be listed on there website but they carry them. I'm sure they will be less than a serpent complete set. I don't think serpent even sells them as a complete set.

Well, here's a setup i thought you could check up
dunno shocklength though, the TRF's are at the same length as the standard dampers though.
*edit* Forgot the gearing, it's 20-24 and 52-47

Fordman500... I used the rear ball diff last year because of the ease of tuning, overall performance was a tad bit down because of the extra weight... I know it says light weight, but it weighs more then the stock gear diff... If you don't like swapping out diff oils and diffs altogether, then give the ball diff a try... For me though, perfer the gear diff... Always have a couple on hand depending on track conditions...

Thanks for the reply RC!!

Heres my problem.I filled the gear diff with 10,000 like you told me.I came back to it the next day and there was a puddle of diff oil on my table.I took it apart and everything seemed ok.The screws were tight and the gasket was intact.Im not sure whats going on.Like I said though Im not a big fan of the gear diffs anyway.As far as the weight goes,Im no where near the level of driving that a little more weight will make a difference.I just really dont want to mess around with swapping oils.
