Anyone try the new 2 speed kit from 3Racing? It is pretty different from the stock one. Looks pretty nice. I may get one since it is only $30.

Default 600 wt mugen oil = X weight losi etc

so since the real racing season started and I got my MTX4's I haven't had time to figure it out(21 days at the shop without a day off) whats the conversion between mugen oil and losi or asc oils.. I thought it might make sense if it was mugen 600 = 60 wt losi ... but that might make to much sense..

thanks,

i dont have their 2speed kit but i did order their new delrin spur gears, they promised to be tougher and more durable then the stock one. besides it's rather unconventional blue color , i will see how it works compared with stock ones.

if in doubt , start with rdlogics turbo 3. i have good experience with their turbo 2 pipe when i still had my jp. good power band and awesome top end. of course the new skyline vr12 should also be on your list, i have not tried it personally but i have heard lots of good things about it.

less rotating mass = faster spool, faster acceleration, faster rpm, and in some cases could be faster top speed due to higher rpm.

Tag, I'd be very interested in the results. I am thinking of giving them a try myself. I have a feeling there won't be much change in lap times but durability is important too.

Thanks in advance.

Default Skyline Pipes

I want to pick up a 6mm stinger version of the Skyline VR12 .12 muffler and header. Everywhere I look it's the 5mm (legal) version. Anywhere I can get the 'fun' oooops, I mean the Outlaw version?

I need it shipped overseas. I can pay with paypal.

Thanks.

I`ve been out for testing some pipes the last weekend. For me the JP EFRA 2620 with the conical header rocks! I am very impressed there is power over the whole range. Especially the low end power is amazing. Here in europe you can get the pipe for about 65Euro.

The 2620 is pretty good.
