Default Spool

If you want to try to make your own spool, here is how I did it.
It works great, and improved my lap times.

Let me know if you have any questions. Just remember to keep your rear diff loose. About 10K oil.

I use 2 9450's, after the throttle servo I had in the car died. You'll want to keep an eye on your battery pack, it'll drain more quickly with 2 digital servos, but I have been able to finish 30 minute mains with a full charge before the start. I use the RD Logics 730mah battery pack.

Good luck Mike, I've been waiting for mine for a month... Even Superior doesn't have it, and they've been on the phone with Mugen every time I go up there...

maybe he shifts to lower gear to slow the car down? or maybe he just, with precise maneuver ability, roll the car to complete stop? or maybe he must've had a good pit man.

heard that the RD battery somewhat won't last as long as the Mugen ones. wish I know about all the mysterious science stuffs in it so I can figure out why. I charge my Mugen pack at 0.5 and it'd last me about half a day or so.

I haven't had a problem with the run time on my RD Logic 800 mah pack. Lasts me all of practice and 1st qualifier (probably more, but I don't want a bad qual due to dead battery ).
