Re: Kyosho Turbo Scorpion and Tomahawk

Nice resto on the Scorpion - you wouldn't know that wasn't brand new.

Are those 'Sand Super' stickers on the lower white section on the wrong sides - the shape seems wrong?

I see Chris Sturdy has entered. Be good to see him on dirt over here.

Why are we spelling tyres with an 'i' now?

Re: 32 year old PB mini Mustang - going to race it again soon

Not sure on belt pitch. I run the course 3mm belt in both of mine, but I do have a Maxima set with the original belt. Off the top of my head it looks like MXL - same pitch as the original Schumacher Cat.

Re: 32 year old PB mini Mustang - going to race it again soon

That was always the tricky thing with the PB. The original shocks are terrible, but they mount centrally on the little plastic towers, whereas every other type of shock mounts on one side or the other, causing them to twist. Quite hard to make better towers too and there isn't much to connect them t...

Re: 380 brushed motors Help

You don't need to break the motor in. For racing we used to run them under water for a number of seconds until the water started turning black - this accelerated the brush wear and gave the motor more torque as the brushes make contact with a larger area of the com.

Re: Mylaps update disables MRT transponders
