So Stefan, you're using the 3Racing pulleys? I have a full set that everyone's scared me from using....

Anyone here in the states used them for parts? How quickly do they ship. Are they reputable? Any response would be appreciated.

Also I tried the new 0.8 module gears. They are smooooooth as silk. If you plan on running them on unprepared surfaces where ther are small stones and rocks you will ruin these gears.


Also can anybody suggest a good source for cheap foam tires?

Try it out and let us know. I'm tempting of trying'em out once more.

Do you know what is the BEST bearing oil? Some say to use the brand name exclusively for EP. I've been using the one for the locomotive.

My 3 is on so much of a roll, I hate to change anything. I changed a front belt between heats the other day and noticed the middle pulley was worn...I need to go through the car, and at least replace that one. It is SO dialed.

Default clutch springs

I know this may have asked before..

but what is the theory behind the different rates of clutch
springs? the more powerful the engine the harder the springs??

Default Question re Battery

Does anyone know if my Mugen NiMH battery pack will last at least 16 years? I charge it at 0.1 rate.

improportional calculation should be 16x5 years = 80.00000000000000000000000000000000 years

lemme go tell him the good news. There must be something in the air to make his battery last that long.

Ti screw is the limit. Al screws are just too soft and not up to the strength to take the stress.
