Yeah I've been trying to find that mag, but now RCX is sold out of it on back issues. Has anybody scanned it or anything? I'd love to read it.

OH yeah, anyone else with pics of how they mounted their pressure chamber? Thanks

I secured mine to the radio tray with a zip tie. Place it on the side of the fuel tank next to the pipe and put a zip tie around it and the radio tray. It fits perfectly.

I put the one for my MRX-3 in the same place, bt this pic gives you an idea of where it goes. The MRX-3 has a mount for the chamber, but it looks too big for it's smaller brother.

One -Way is best used if you have a large open and fluid track. If your track is short and tachnical, with lots of braking turns, you're best off with a differential, regardless of tire wear.

I just put a diff in the front and switched the diff in the rear. I was playing on a "sandy" steet, just checking breaking and the way the car felt. I was supprized to see the difference. I am goin gto run it today on a small tight track. I did notice that with the one-way, I could stay in the throttle coming out of a turn and it would pull the car out of a slide, but with the diff in the front, I had to blip the throttle and the car snapped back. Now I have to figure out which is faster.

Car flipping in tight corner=TRACTION ROLL Try to take some grip out of the car by going to harder tires. I ran today on a tight technical track. Car with a diff in the front, I ran 3 heats and a main and had 4mm of wear in the rear and 1 in the front, using a 16-19 conversion. Car was setup to be agressive in the turns. The way the ran with the diff in the front was nice, I had breaks, but didnt' need them but for the end of the straights. I experianced traction roll too at the end of the day, but I noticed the car would not roll if I stayed on throttle in the turns, but when I let off, it would roll up on two tires. Another car had the one-way and he noticed the rear of the car was very loose.

Hello I need help in choosing servos for throttle and steering. Here are the servos that I currently have.
1. Futaba S9404 analog (discontinued) 79.20 oz/in. and 0.11sec at 6v
2. KO 2173 analog - 111.0 oz/in and 0.09sec at 6v
3. KO 2343 digital - 111.0 oz/in and 0.08sec at 6v

Which one should I use for throttle and for steering?
Also how long does an 800mah 5 AAA battery pack last using a digital and an analog servos plus failsafe?
