I've run it around a track with the old engine in it. It needs some diff fluid put in. I have never done it before, how hard is it and how does it go in. Is there a way with out having to pull out the diffs?
Actually the center diff is the only one you have to pull the 4 screws out of the bottom to get out. For the front and rear diffs all you have to do is remove the aluminum hingepin bracket, the 2 screws on bottom closes to the end of the chassis and 2 screws in the front case of the diff and remove the front cover. The diff will then slide out of the case real easy. Better than taking the whole suspension assemble off. I learned the hard way and took everything off before I noticed this.

I did have 5-7-3 and it worked good but I just changed them to 10-30-3 to see what it does. Just curious. Will probably have tried it by friday, if not sunday for sure.

I need to get some shock bladders to suit the monsoon shockers. I can source them locally so im looking for an alternative. Anyone know of a different brand of shock bladders that will fit?

The Kyosho one on Amian look about right or the ones linked below.

Anyhelp with links or info would be great.

Fioroni 13mm Silicone Bladder (4)

Well I ran my monsoon last night at the avon park track again but they opened up the whole straightaway. Had the 12 tooth on it and it SCREEEAAAMMED!!! There were a couple of guy out there and when they saw that hit the straight and the same with my hurricane they all came up and asked me "what motor you got in that thing!" I said the stock one for REDCAT! SH28. They could not believe how fast it was.

The wheel spacers worked good to I can corner alot harder without the inside tires wanting to come up on me and the 10-30-3 diff fluid worked great. Tires did not balloon up at all and did not push in the turns.

I had my mantis out with axial .28RR also and the monsoon would walk all over it on the straights! I could not believe it. I thought my mantis had some top end, guess not!

Gotta love that 12 tooth!

well I've got about 5 tanks on the OS 30 and my steering servo has gone I think. Anyone know if the servos are O.K. with 6V. I make my own RX packs out of rechargable 2300mah AA's. but didn't think 6V would hurt. What are the spec on the steering servo looking for a new one to replace the one in there now.

If it is the stock steering servo you should consider yourself lucky it lasted that long! Just think you have to put a better servo on it and you would be good to go.

Haven't got them on my site yet but for the price the HS-645MG will work just fine on that rig but if you want to spend a bunch and get the best go [link=http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/474361.asp]here[/link]

Here is a link to the hitec servo with 140 oz. One of the best for the price if you are not a serious racer or anything. I use one on my Hyper ST Pro.

[link]http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/servlet/the-330/Hitec-hs645-ultra-torque/Detail[/link]

Check out the torque on this one though if you never want to have any problems and you can get this one at the above site but you have to call him because it is not listed.

LoL all that power makes it slow though and what I'm waiting to hear about is the guy who was fooling with the steering with one of those 333 oz beasts and his 2 year old turned the wheel and it almost pinched his finger off[sm=stupid.gif][sm=what_smile.gif]
