with the .21 verson of the car the stock exhaust is under sized, instead of going smaller for the .28 you should look at going bigger.

Hey guys,

I'm a new member from Ireland. I must have spent the last 2 hours reading all 53 pages of posts..

Some great work goin on.

My schuey 28 is arriving next week so very excited.

I've been running a Ts-4n plus/pro, fully hoped up with alloy parts, 2 speed, orion wasp .12 motor, grp gandini foams. She is quick enough at about 55-60mph....nothing like ye got going on though!

But woah I cannot live without that kinda power in my life so an rtr fusion is coming.

First question would be: Does anybody use/have a tuned pipe that uses the 3 spring assembly??

I know they are the pipes of choice for the small block turbo .12s but does the silicon coupler with the picco 28 suit for the purposes??

Or is a 3 spring mounted header and pipe available??

thanks for the quick reply nitro i looked for the optional drive shaft for the GTR menace in the exploded view, manual and the speed secrets on line but could only find one part number u2683 with no optional upgraded parts just the one listed are you using the standard menace GTR steel drive shafts or did you upgrade to a stronger one if so would it be cheeky to ask for the part numbers if you get time thanks

chicken feet cheers for the reply but those part numbers seem to be for the fusion, Ive not had no problems with my fusion drive shafts yet (touches wood)  although U3020 look like fusion drive shafts it doesn't say what car they are for or listed in the fusion diagram so i may be wrong about them ones, thanks

Go to http://www.serpent-uk.com/ phone them up and ask for the softest 10th scale wheels they can get.

Obvioulsy softer wider tires will give more grip. But for agility thinner tires are better. You can get tire warmers as well and tire additives.

Hello i was just wondering has anyone in the UK done the wolf-pack radicals foam conversion to there menace gtr,

i have just got the wheel adaptors through the post from wolf-pack radicals and ordered the 1/8th foams tyres from Ben-racing,

when i got the foam tyres from Ben-racing they have the 4 pin layout not the 3 pin which is on the adaptors,

does anyone have part numbers and web addresses for the foam tyres with the 3 pin layout to buy in the UK

your help would be appreciated as I'm beginning to lose hope and as you can tell by the posting time i have spent many nights looking at the forum and have read all about it but just cant find the right tyres,

thanks in advance,

 i also tried to upload the pictures to show you guys what i mean but for some reason they are only coming out as a small white page with a red cross 

here is a link to the ones i have already got these have the 4 pin layout, part no:MU35FCB

Its not; the riot has a small block pipe and if you look at the stinger its far too small and would restrict the power more than the standard fusion pipe. The riot is only 1/10 anyway, so its not as big as you think.

Yeah that is true it would limit the output on the larger motor.

I've been saying it since they released pictures of it!


Good thing too, the old one would really restrict the power from the new engine.
