I had gear strip problem in the past and as it was stated somewhere here, I shimmed the end of 1st gear oneway to take out the clearence. (put shims between oneway and e-clip).. no gear strip at all

Kodak,
Sam doesn't carry any OS items.

You cannot put any other plugs on your TZ, or else you'll get leaks. The threads of the OS is slightly different from other MFGs.

RC-toro has them in packs of 6. With 2-3 days shipping to California, it comes out to be about $6.50 USD. Shipping maybe different to your area. That's better than 8-9 bucks at the LHS

I've ordered 12 pcs from them before and I got my plugs in 3 days.

spring is dependant on track surface and grip levels. when grip is there i used to run the black 1.8 spring. but as Gansei also found that the shoe wear is uneven. so i run the mugen silver spring or the 1.8 yellow spring to solve the wear problems. harder spring is for a higher traction. softer spring when traction is low.

Well i raced today after 6 weeks off racing, and i did so and so day i guess:

run down:

1st heat - 1st
2nd heat - 4th
3rd heat - 3rd

B - Final 20mina - 2nd

Overal placing from A & B group - placed PB of 6th nearly top 5

I used 30,000W diff oil in rear and spool front and it didnt help so much in the rear, i think it was juust to taily and not enough traction thats for sure!

i ran 40W rear tires 38W fronts

overal, my clucth is finaly shot - no i undrstand we need thicker one!!!

dunno its been over 6months of racing and still our G4S crew here is strugglin to get a decent setup, mmmh maybe its driver LOL

back to the drawing board id say!
