Toys N Us when I bought all those extra parts I had with me

They're off the TNX they fit tho

Just worried that the engine wont fit on the mounts.!

yupp you would.

Theres no point in buying a reciever if you dont have a radio to transmit on that frequency.

I dont really believe in hop ups, I believe in Up - Grading

Might be upgrading the a - arms + lower arms to aluminium ones (IF I can find them).

Found a set for the TNX online, might try those out.

BTW When was the last time you checked your clutch.

Thats a TQ radio isnt it.?

The Nitrage does not need 3 channels.

I just use the 3'rd channel as an emergency steering channel.

But if im right, 3 channels normally operate on FM + 2.4 GHZ.

Not on an AM bandwith.?

I think what he wants is a Digi radio, mine's an Xs3 + Dx3...

A reciever also operates on a set frequency unless its a Spektrum set up or a synthesized set up...

Checked your clutch, how many gallons have you put it though.! The clutch is one of the reasons my engine went bust.

There was nothing in there when I opened it up.

When you notice your engine acting funny.

Like engine revving stupidly.

Keep it like this

What my engine sounded like on Saturday, I should have replaced my clutch shoes then!..

FWIW - I don't have a Nitrage, but my clutches tend to last a little longer than what I'm reading about here. I take mine apart every 10 tanks or so and "de-gloss the shoes with 600-grit emory cloth and clean the inside of the clutch bell with alcohol. Sometimes, before cleaning with alcohol I have to scrape some clutch-shoe residue off with an exacto knife, but not very often. The clutch is really a high-maintenance item and should be examined and cleaned peridically.
