Greased Lightning! It is the best and safest way to deadonize the aluminum. I got the trick from Baja Planet's forum.

can you spray it on and then wipe it off, or does it need to soak?

You soak and agitate the parts in the solution until the color comes off...then rinse and wash with dish detergent. It typcally took about 1-2hrs depending on the parts and how well they were anodized.

i was going to ask the same question!! Anyone have or have used the front brakes setup for the baja? Can you put those brakes on the 3rd channel so you can apply front brake only when you want??

Hello all. I have been following this thread for almost a year now, you guys sem to have a lot of fun with this buggy. I know I have, but one thing has always bothered me, the rear dominator style pipe is just too loud for me. For the past 6-7 years I have been flying 35 to 40% airplanes and flying quiet is a must at most flying fields. I have become used to "silenced" exhaust systems in my planes and have been looking at whats currently on the market for these buggies to make them quiet without losing power. There are some options out there but I wanted to design/build something of my own that would be sure to make it truely quiet. As far as power is concerned, there doesn't seem to be any loss and it is MUCH quieter now. I made 10 passes on asphalt (roughly 250') with the pipe only then did the exact same test with the silencer on and got as close to exact times as I could measure. The tuning was exactly the same and the engine temps remained the same as well. (on board data logger) The next thing to do is to make an intake box to quiet down the air filter. (believe it or not it makes a LOT of noise) Its going to be much harder to make and not reduce performance so, it may take a few prototypes to get it right. All in all it took me about two hours today to make the silencer not too bad at all. (the pics dont show it finished, with the mount bracket and stinger on the outlet side, I'll post a pic of it tomorrow when I get back to work) Hope you enjoy!
