NO, NOT SHORT TERM.

I had a RB X12 5 port loose it's compression very early in it's life and I sent the p/s to OS Rocket for resizing.

After a very short re- brak- in the engine ran strong as a bull for 2 full racing seasons.

Since that time I'm a religiuos customer of OS Rocket and every engine he did for me ran better and longer afterwards.

Check THIS out, Kawahara Delin rear lower arms. They are very strong, I had it on my mtx2 when I had the car, and it last forever!
i had this arm on my MTX2 and they works great. it also removed the slop if you use the stock arms.

Hi Guys,

Has anybody got a bullet-proof solution for connecting the receiver batt. to the receiver.

I stopped using switches years ago as I always had problems with them. They all seam to be quite cheaply made.

I use a batt. extension lead from the receiver & connect this into the batt. when I need to.

But I've found this can also have problems, especially in the wet.

So . . . Any solutions? I've thought of using a high quality micro switch from an electronics supplier?


All the best
get one which is dust/water proof. micro switch is prone to malfunction with dirts.

1. What diff oil are you guys using in your rear diffs w/one-way installed?
2. When do you know to increase or decrease the thickness of the diff oil?
3. The directions are some what vague, but how do the different blocks for the front and rear impact the cars handling?

Thanks
The different blocks change the roll center. A is low roll center, B is mid, and C is high roll center.

Raising the roll center will add traction, and some chassis roll to the car. Lowing the roll center will take away chassis roll, and remove some traction.

Use the same but with the old Multiplex connectors, are much better to do battery connections on greasy/messy cars.
