I guess we would have to ask the new wife, why he isn't showing up here anymore
Man he must have been glowing.

I have not seen him posting or seen him on MSN for ages!! Let me know if you hear from him OK?

Data... I am driving the G4. The new steering blocks and steering system are great... I have a buyer for the MTX3... but I can't let that car go just yet... Oh, what size clutch bell is your Kyosho RRR??? MTX3 size or is it smaller like the 710 and G4? I want to try and see if the FW05's 26 and 27 tooth clutch gear will fit my G4... The race Sunday was ok.... Had more engine problems... Had to buy a new piston and sleeve for the RB... Tired of $#@&% around with that sleeve pincher. See you Saturday... Got to go to Elite to pick the gears up Saturday morning and I'll be at the track at about 11am.. Save me a spot in the pits...

Default Belt tension!

the rrr clutch bell is the same size (where it engage the clutch shoe) as the other v-1 cars, but the section where the two pinion gears go become smaller in diameter.

Thanks mckrooz for the hobby shop info... And brother of mckrooz...
Data, Thanks also.. I just found out that the NTC3 centax clutch bell is the same size as the G4 and is made by K-factory... There's two types though, a standard thread type and an metric thread type... The metric tread is the I have on my car, but no one carries the 26 and 27 tooth clutch gears... Can you ask Tony Tam if his has those gears and clutch bell... Thanks

let the stock belts soak in WD-40 for a couple of day. This will soften them up so that they grab the pulleys better and it will allow them to strech.
