Mr.Fixit
FYI stay away from Alkalines. Use the Nimhs. True they are rated at 1.2 but you'll go through so many batteries if you don't. Lipos is another way to go but risky in your radio due to overheating. We've had a few melt down at the tracks last year that were lipo powered.

I tried to polish my front kingpins. I now have a knuckle bind. Anyone have a set they want to get rid of for free?

If you buy his let me know. I can do some basic mods for you. For instance new LED, skins, programing and more. Jessie making graphite triggers now out of his garage. He gave me one. Its about 7 or 8 mm thick. Much better than stock.

Yes its them. Do you have spares? I'm getting my modified tuned up. Not sure if anyone noticed once the paint wears off the pins they bind. The knuckles don't travel much but if they do I want it to be smooth as possible. If you've a set let me know how much. TERC is closed for another week and I won't be off work then. Wanting to get it done while I have time.

Yo Paul try using a brass tube inserted in the blocks as I did. The king pin travels up and down inside the tube yet fixed tightly in your steering block. Much better than plastic on metal. Try it. It smooths out what your talking about.

Mr.Fixit
Use the nimh. If your like most you won't like it. The feel is different since Lipos are lighter than nimhs. Do as you wish but nimh feels the best. I'm offering my 2 cents.

Jonathan and I are different. He uses lipos in his and I don't. As lead said it does feels different in your hand. Mine also tips a bit forward which I tend to like better.

I would stick with the nimhs bro. Ceri and the others do have a point. The radio does feel odd with lipos. Besides if you have to drive your car that long and need longer transmitter time your bashing not racing.

I switched back to nimh it was a pain hauling around two different chargers. Sure I could have purchased a charger that does both nimh and lipo but why if I already have one of the two already.

Theres a few who run lipo. I think JB changed them over. Of course some of us have swtiched back to nimh like J and myself. Its hard to get use to once you've used the radio before you install lipos. The weight is that much different. If your any good at driving you'll feel it.

J felt like working on the karts over the past couple of days. He added steering block tubes like you Works nice but he picked up play in travel. He wants to know if use metric or amercian size tubes? How about using different sized pins?
