    Boom tubes

    I needed some old school size alum. ones" convert to carbon too much trouble in this case" and found them Mc Master Carr, but got G10 instead there ,had to run a drill inside to open just a bit. drilled perfect. Was light and looks cool.Not sure if the size is there, but just a thought.

    favorite charger

    I have two of the ones above sweet http://www.hobbypartz.com/60p-dyc-1003.html is another cheaper alternative as above without as nice of screen, all these #6 based chargers have same main board & program.They were at first well over $100 ,charge all my batts way better than nmhi peak chargers ever did.Will do your gel cell as well. Life is future for rec batt can't say enough about them, . I have a cheap" less than 20 shipped" 2200 lipo made for my trans. I can run easily 20hrs "on time" a charge .It's about 1/2 the weight no self discharge. I'm only running the smallest 400mah mnhi anymore in my .12 & .21 riggers every thing else life . I guess I'm saying make sure you get one that will charge them when your ready.

    battery placement and cg jae 12

    It was discucssed before that it really did not matter. I guess if the prop is unhooking more could be moved to rear, but many having using Xseries props any way.

    Was it a muffled pipe? Picco muffled .21 pipes have about 1/2 stinger on end, kinda rolled tight on to a machined end with short fatter stinger. PM me your PH# I can text you pic if you want, sorry not for sale my rigger needs more testing on it MACs made great Rs on it. CMB muffled were real square at end and painted,,,,,wait do you still have one to post pic just re-read your post,, oh well let me know if your trying to figure out what you had,have.

    Info on servo's

    A lot of 1/8th buggy guys swear by airtronic servos for the price. Although the one wire & conn. is blue" no more weird airtronics plugs" I am sure it plugs in to any Rec. Just doesn't have the fut. extra spade edge. Google reviews on servo you might get some hits. EDIT I ses tunlbotr types faster than me.There you go.

    SGX 91RS

    Thanks Andy. Will be fun trying to open up the inner stinger. Your memory is real good .420 it is. Got to scratch my head a little on this one. Ya I did bend it a little to much at the pond. But it sure did go. Think I will hold off on propping it up till I get the hang of it. The fancy button and all the whittling on the P/S it sure seams to like the cup. the stock 1667 made it jump out of the water at launch. Just want to keep up with the new twins. David It worked!!! The RPM's were over the top. Way over the top blew the guts out of the plug seal and all. Could not catch up with the needle and burn a pin hole in the piston. Time to start over. I guess I should have mentioned to be sure to start with a richer needle setting....always a good idea when making changes to the engine/pipe. I put the Boris flow meter on it and started at 40. Just got away from me. The link on the needle fell off and that was all see wrote. It wants to rev to the moon though. I just have to learn better needle management. I am very bad at it when it starts to sing and my heart starts pumping. Didn't stick the piston any way. The mods work on the 91 the same as on my 45. I'll get it next time. Maybe? Got a 1.00 EVO P/S to use just need the button. Think I'll wait till I get the hang of it before I go there. Hope Stu gives me the volume discount. Andy you have any headers for a 91RS in the SGX? David Lose the 3rd channel needle deal ..when you have real power ..DONT NEED IT !!!! :) Tom You know I think that would be the best thing I could ever do. Can't mess with the needle if I don't have a button to push. David Can set EPA on radio so as not to over lean ,fine line as it is , but the needle probably had way too much room for leaning left in it.

    Which .21 OB Silencer???

    I like the ones 707 specialties has, tried .21 & .45 mufflers. The only one I tried when my areotech/nelson was running that didn't hold it back, sounds great too. Any thing over .45 on inboard pipe might be over Db from what I have heard. so far so good on .21 ib. My .21 IB are JB weld on only no clamp & .45ob I made an adapter to fit stinger instead over the end of irwin pipe. . You can legally run internal stinger to quiet it down, pics on IMPBA sight. I have that the OB can benefit on better heat in pipe with internal stinger.Make sure there is a drain hole in brass tube, right before the end of the pipes cone" use bent wire to get it lined up".
  14. What tank or tanks in 3.5 vision craft. Probably looking for a plastic one.

    What tank or tanks in 3.5 vision

    Thanks to all, I never planned to do 3.5 OB but got a deal so I'm going cheap on this build. Love to have a Walt tank but $ is going,going,gone elsewhere. I thought the canopy was too narrow for standard 6-8 tanks.

    Suggestions for IMPBA B Mod Tunnel

    The Rg"sport priced buggy motor" sleeve needs to be turned down slightly ,someone @ IW as doing them for cheap cause the sleeves were real cheap at the time.Said they could set the timing up as well for extra . Sorry don't remember who. Do a WTB in for sale section when you need it.
  20. You can PM me with any tips you like.

    NEW ProBoat Stiletto FE OPC Tunnel

    If it digs in at outer corner you might be able to get about 1degree on motor top to right from rear view "with stock mount holes.Just a thought. Before I wrecked my areotech I think I had about 3 degree by accident and it never turned WOT so well.

    Rx and battery pack for JAE .12

    I have 2 of the center and 1 of bottom rt.they will charge lead acid too" where car batt ch. will cook our gel cells & small hobby ac adapter type take too long/ they're just right" You can renew nmhi batts with 1-5 times balance,,,tip all the #6 based chargers have the same brain/boards. The gold one is the best bang per buck for 12/120v. All of them are way better & accurate than the peak field chargers I spent good money on. Especially double vision hanger 9 one that was total crap for $60.

I have a custom sanyo nmhi 1100 aaa 6v that is 3x2 end to end and will fit the stock arranged jae 12. The 2 fit under the servo arm. From buzbee when I got his .12 I'll let it go for 10 shipped.

    NEW ProBoat Stiletto FE OPC Tunnel

    That is a thing of beauty there <I'll tell you what. It's a great package to recommend to the guys at the LHS that want to get there feet wet in boats. Although they will spend a grand on a buggy kit to dabble in a boat that needs a $300+ motor they get a blank stare. Some of the tunnel purpose cut 1400 series props seem to have just a little extra lift left to bring down the front of hull.
