Need your TT/NF Nitro tips and tricks!!

Hi guys,

I've been maintaining the RCMCC website for the past year and we've gotten about 1,100 hits per month on the website - mostly from you guys, but I'd bet a lot of beginners read the site as well.

Since we have most of our innovations locked in on the 1/8th scale bike, I was wondering if you guys could suggest tips to compile for our 1/5th nitro section?? And our 1/5th electric section too. Just email a picture of the mod and description to me at ianfran@hotmail.com. Or you can post it here. I'll review, post on the website and give you credit for it.

Also, it'd be great if you guys could suggest the absolute necessary hopups necessary to get the nitro bikes up and running.

Thanks to all!!

Its two way!! yes it rest against the battery's so your first guess is right,(see the first pic) and it strengten the swingarm incase of a crash ,i also made a little alu rest so the battpack don't get damaged and is protected.
it has nothing to do with a chain guide and the clearance is enough so it won't ware out.

now i have to see and wait if it will work to keep the shock a little longer at one piece.

a other mod i did is i made the hole of the rotostart or pullstart in the left main frame bigger so i can take that part out without pulling the frame apart. i found that a irritating. so easy access on the oneway bearing.

Hey Ron,
What is that fuel tube for? I thought maybe it was a drainage tube but you have it plugged up, so now I don't know!
Tom
BTW,
Can you send me the .jpg files of your Yamaha and Motul stickers, and Michelin too, if you have them?

Hey Tom,

I run a similar drain pipe on my bike. When it's running I leave it blocked, and after a run I remove the plug and let the acculated oil in the pipe drain out. (Ofcourse, you could just leave the bike up on it's end and achieve the same thing)
