9.6 v.s. 9 volt tx battery ??

The 9.6v battery will work just fine. NICAD's are 1.2v per cell.

8 x 1.2v = 9.6v

Order it from Radical, you will not be dissapointed.

Century Jet Customer Service

Mayby, just mayby CJM has heard the grumbles and is attempting a radical change. It took them long enough. I will still use the "wait and see" method before they get any more of my business.

looks like morrise will release VQ P-38 Lightning ARF soon!

Could someone who has the VQ P38 post a picture of the flap mechanism that connects the outer flap to the inner? I am not pleased with the G&P method, and would like an alternative.

Briggs 4 stroke trimmer engine!!!

Never heard the term side valve. It probably is just a flat head like most of the Briggs lower end engines. Valves in the block next to the piston.
