Default SWEET!

I was looking at two remote controls:

1. JR RC2
2. Airtronics MX3

You guys have any preference between these two? Thanks!

The Airtronics MX3 is a really good and popular radio. You would not be dissapointed if you got it.

The servos should be compatible. All you will need to do is hook them into the Receiver. No modification needed!

Subaru, If you can find the older RS style grab up that one. Not the one that looks like the wrx. just a difference in how the lights and hood look i think the older one looks better but its up to u

LOL yeah when I got this thing I was asking allot of questions.It doesn't even seem that long ago either.It's been through alot since then but I think I'm finnally happy with the performance now that I have a good tuned pipe and have the suspension tweaked

Here's a pic of the underside just so you don't think it hasn't been abused

Default RS4 SS - GPM Parts

I got some brand new GPM parts for the RS4 SS's drive train like, rear universal drive shafts and center univeral drive shafts. These parts worked great, but after using less than a gallon of fuel from the time I started using these parts, I noticed that there are already some deterioration on the most critical section of these parts.

At the rear universal shafts, the small pin that connect the joint to the axle starts to loosen and already backing off. If you continue running your car at this stage, you might loose the pin, and you can no longer use the drive shafts. Another pin that is attached to the drive dog that connects to the diff outdrive also starts to back off. The pin now shaves off some material from the bottom portion of the diff housing.

At the center shaft, the rear drive shaft that connects from the transmission to the rear diff also starts to get loose from the u-joint area. The connecting pins (where the joints are) are still intact, but, the pins slowly grinds the metal material around it resulting the hole gets bigger and the u-joint slack starts to increase. I am just waiting the the moment that these parts fall off or no longer performing as expected, I might go back to the original HPI part.

If you think of getting these parts that I mentioned, you might as well consider other better brands even though you will be shelving out additional cash from your pocket. There are some GPM part that works great like my graphite disk brake, and aluminum bell crank, but for the drive train.....better think twice.

For the information of everybody only.

Thanks
