Default Turnbuckle standing up

That is to support the body in the weakest point, which is right under the windshield. some actually put a body post eith a pin through it there.

Default Red Clutch Shoes

Do any of you guys know the difference between the grey and red clutch shoes? Part numbers H0765 (grey) and H0769 (red). There seems to be a 350% price difference between grey and red here in Oz but I can't find out why there is such a massive price difference. I don't even see the red shoe listed on the murgen site. Does anyone know. I tried searching this site but you can't really search a single thread.

RED is softer than GREY. I don't think Mugen makes it; they just outsource it; hence, the higher the price.

best,

it was originally made by the guys at Delta for the HPI car. Then they started making it for Mugen.

I`ve found you dont need to run the conversion if you have the right set up on the car. Run a harder rear tire than the front and you shouldnt have an isue with uneven tire wear. By the time my fronts are useless, my split is only about 1.5-2.0mm anyway.When you have a smaller rear tire you gain overdrive so the car doesnt really behave all that different.

If you run overdrive you run the front tyres smaller than the rear, to get ride hight back you must raise the front end and this gives even more understeer entering corners and scrubs the front tyres. It can be better on small tracks but I can't stand it on larger grippier tracks.
If you're talking about tyre split then it's nice to finish with even tyres after a heat, usually 1-1.5 mm smaller on the front for 10 mins is a good starting point but will vary depending on how abrassive the track is.

Ah HA! I can give you first hand coments about this one! (Quote- Take a Sledge Hammer to this pipe RIGHT AWAY! end qoute)
This pipe was the root of all my engine problems at the Texas Biggie, the engine ran very hot , and stalled out every qualifier! I changed the pipe, the problems went away. Keep the header , it is usefull.

Wow-It surprises me to read someone who hates the X-12 that much.Where I race its a very popular pipe.I run one with a MR-12 and it runs great.I never have had or heard of any problems like Slotmachine is talking about.I give it a thumbs up!!
