You should try the Serpent pipe holder it would give a little more give than the Mugen and you won't have to put a bend in it.

Yep... the serpent pipe hanger is on my cars from many years ago, much better than the mugen one, gives you more clearance on that area that's very crowded of pieces. Look at the next attachment I posted some time ago:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...hmentid=122348

Another nifty trick is to swap the one-way outdrives for a set of spare parts of Xray electric car (the Mugen are good, but the Xray are lighter and more resistant to yield forces). The ones I use came originally from a Xray T1 front one-way and after from my MTX3 (are made of Hudy spring steel and are amost indestructible).

I was talkig about the actual wire not the holder that bolts to the upper deck. Serpent makes a wire that has several loops in it that is pre-bent and clears the front pulley very nicely

My Novak 4.5 made a mess of my rear Spring Steel outdrives on my T2. I'd hate to think of what my STI or Plus 12 will do to them when the clutch engages at around 20,000 odd RPM

I can show you the shape of my outdrives after more than 80 litres of fuel (they started on my Xray, then on the MTX3 and now on the MTX4) the shape is great, no visual damage nor wear of the outdrive, at least for me works great.

P.S: I'll post some actual photos of the outdrives on the next days.

Richey, Xray Spring Steels Outdrives are part #305131.

CorseR, sweet tip. I have every gen Xray and never thought of trying the outdrives. Maybe cause I never wanted to strip them of any parts, but this carpet season I'll pick up a few more for next yrs nitro season.

IMHO, Xray's quaility is hard to beat. But for nitro cars, Mugen is just as comparable in quality and durability.


Rody, your 4.5 would smoke any .12 if you put them on the carpet together. That's mad brushless hp. It's no wonder your rear Spring Steels are mangled. especially if we're talking foams tires.
