Of couse, there is one!

I replace one on my car, so there's one left. Wanna split w/ me? So, we both pay 50/50? $15 for you, and $0.50 to ship, how's that?

Sounds Like a Good R/C Song... 'My Car got Da Blues.....' What's the sidewinder run $?Did you Get FFM into Nitro R/C? Thought you 2 were new to this stuff. The O'donnell stuff left yellowish Gunk on my piston .I Guess thats what acetone is good for ... Cleaning the junk out.
Sidewinder fuel cost $18.00 dollars at Hobby town usa. And ive been in rc since 1982 . I still have a Tamiya Frog still in the box. But ive never raced. FFG bought me a Mtx-3 when i got back from iraq because she let some one play with one of my tamiya car's and they broke it. She's been into nitro longer than i have..Her dad's got a pair kyosho mp-5's. And he also flies plane's and helo's.. So she's use to nitro.

Way cool FFM. My lhs Sucks Pricing is High nothing but kids who think they know it all cause they have every hop up on there rtr thats avail. The O'donnell fuel I bought was $20(had to drive 40miles) and it was a bad batch the trinity Monster HP 20-30%runs $25-$30(local).Guess I need to Search Harder for a fuel source. L.A. area sucks for R/C support.

This is so Japanese ... why do they have 2 different coloured springs with the same diameter? What is the spring loading in terms of pounds/kilos? Anyone got any idea why different colours with same diameter?

Hi

Although the springs are the same diameter you'll find that one has a less amount of coils compared to the other, this makes the one with less coils stiffer. Mugen have done this to the MRX3 with the red and pink springs already, same diameter spring different amount of coils.

Fisher...I like Byron's Fuel, I got a new engine this past summer and changed back and forth between turbo heads and non turbo, after 4 weeks of racing you could hardly see any deposits on the head button with the Byron's Fuel. They use "Klotz" brand synthetic racing oils, which is the best stuff around. I get it at a Hobby shop about 30 miles away, for $21.00 a gallon for Racve Formula 3000 (30%).

I think they also done that with some of the MRX2 springs or the avance.

I remember reading that they were testing new springs a while back but I can't remember where.

Default Brace

Hey guys,

I am curious, has anyone tried the Team Active carbon fiber brace for thier cars?

I am not sure whether the piece of carbon fiber will do the same job as a beefy alloy brace (made by Kawahara, SATO, etc)

Any inputs are welcome
