well, the spring would put some strain on because its trying to close the throttle but the servos is opening it. I'd say it uses a bit more power due to the strain so make sure the batts are charged.


As for a setup book, Dei Rossi hobbies in campbelltown have a book - XXXMain setup guide, it tells you everything and anything about how rc cars work, suspension geometry, setups, hints/tips, etc. Great book, helped me out heaps - cost was about $40.00.

failsafes are about $35+ i paid $80 for my KO PROPO failsafe which retails over $120.

got some pics of my car before the MECA, post up today.

Default Nitro Dave.. Question for u :D

Hey i have question about that paris pipe you are running... Have you ever ran that on your GS-15R? how does it perform. I have been looking for one of those for so long.

Front green tube does nothing but look good. its actually on the wire that holds the pipe to the car. i had some line left over so it fit perfectly.

As for the paris pipe, stop looking in australia, you wont find them here. I had to order it from overseas but a limited amount of stores sold them and i paid a mint for post getting it here. I will be ordering some soon to sell as people have asked me about them. As for pricing, roughly $90 (depending on the quantity i order in).

As for working on a GS15R? i havent had experience with it but my friend i race with has and works excellent! plenty of up and go.

The best thing i like about this pipe is its stronger than the aluminium pipes like the q-power or THS etc. the tip is alum. welded in place - no need to worry about the stinger bending and the whole body is alot stronger with the ripple belly section.

great pipe overall.
