Does the Kawahara Rear Carbon Shock Tower Set come with 4mm shock tower plates?

Default What is the spring rate of the blue springs.

I know there 1.7 but does that mean compared to an associated spring. Like how does convert from metric to standard.

Regarding weight, it weights a little more, but all the weight is placed where it doesn't harms and helps to your car: At the lowest point in your car.

Beware with the stock chassis. Really don't know why but the 3mm chassis that come stock in all cars come with a bow in the rear half. If you're referring to this, isn't really tweaked is how come from stock.
I need to get me one of these 4mm chassis. But I still have a new Eddie The Fish 7075(3mm) that I gotta use.

Yes there was 10 TC's, Jeff E. got mad and left, Bernard broke,I had another ex. spring eat through the header , Uriah couldn't decide whether to race his MTX3 or G4( I think he changed cars in mid main), Alec, well, you know what he did.... , and Tracy TQ'd and ended up with a 3WD TC3....Everyone had problems during the day, I think they need to skip NOT putting the SugarH2O down.

Stefan, you still have those layouts you drew up , don't you? Check the SB Racing thread for my idea....The off-roaders seem to have free range to change their layout whenever they want...I'm going to try to get some guys together to change the on-road layout during the week. If they can do it, so should we.

It is getting sad.

Especially since those guys from TFB are hanging out on the board causing nothing but trouble.

I wish Fernando would come on and tell them that he doesn't need this.

And Randell should get his lazy butt up and block some IP's.

Default Clutch adjustment

I got my car running and im having a problem with my clutch setup. It's taking alot of rpm to engage. how do i adjust it to make it engage earlier? Is it by loosing up the collar that holds the spring? Or by removing washers in the front of the clutch?
