i juz inspected my shocks, & found tat 1 of the rear shocks got problem, the e-ring came off (duno why?). i've re-do the shocks & hope tat it could reduce the problem. thx for the advice.

but another problem came up (lol)
i broke my 1.5mm allen wrench & the bit stay in the set screw. the set screw is used on the x-bracket to secure the roll-over bar, got any ideas to take out tat screw? i was tinking of drilling it but it's rather small, not sure if it works...

The e-ring will came off you you don't clip it properly or entirely in the shock shaft groove. You might want to take note that the washer is kinda concave, if you face the concave down while inserting, then you have just enough groove on the shock shaft to insert you e-clip. But if you place the washer the opposite, then you don't have enough groove appear on the top of your shock shaft for the e-clip, and if you force it, the e-clip will just stay there without any holding power.


On that bit that stay in the x-bracket. It did happen to me before on my helicopter kit. What i did was to drill with the same size of drill bit and re-tread it with the next size of screw or setscrew. I had a hard time drilling with smaller drill bit since my wrench bit left inside was from a harden steel, but you can try on yours with smaller drill bit, if you don't want to lose the original tread. Good luck, u need it.

Corally Auto truer make the same exact truer like Ofna and is cheaper.

With Sanwa / Airtronics, I believe you can install the steering servos as per the instruction in the 705 manual. Those of us with other servos have to install the steering servo linkages reversed...
What do you mean by reversed? Do you have a picture of this?

Meaning, instead of the Ball placing the ball facing down on the servo saver, as per the manual, we have to put the ball facing up.

Im more concerned with EFRA rules, and from what im Ive been told this engine should be legal. At club-level its allowed for sure. In any case my focus will be on getting this baby up and running first, so Im not so worried about it.

Hey guys, I have the Novarossi RS-12 S3 and need a race legal header/pipe.

Can you tell me if these will be race legal and work with my engine?

Header

Pipe

Or will this set work and be race legal?

Complete set

Thanks

Don't know if this works but why not drill it out and tap a bigger screw hole for a bigger set screw?

This is the only picture I have and it shows the position of the servo saver mounted reversed from one shown in the manual.

I don't know if the pipe would be race legal but in any case, you should get the one with the complete set.

The one with the separate pipe will not fit correctly with the separate polished header that you showed. The pipe alone is actually the same pipe as the one in the complete inline pipe set (51640).
