oh and thanks for all the help with shock socks

no zach, its not a direct fit, thats a .28 and much larger than the stock .18 and wont be a direct fit.

the sh.18 is a direct fit. http://www.redcatracing.com/itemdeta...tno=sh18engine

i ordered a few parts thursday the 17th. its the 24th and im still waiting. does it just take redcat a while to ship? or is that odd?

and also i need a video of what the volcano sounds like when its tuned perfectly. i think i did mine alright, but it just doesnt sound tuned perfectly yet.

What I think the zip ties are for on the head is when the thing rolls over it don't scratch up the head ? I could be wrong, but it really sounds like a good ideal which I'm going to do
