Lee C, I do have to have shell slightly higher than  would like but it will do for now, I am going to send Schumacher an e- mail and see which frewer shell has the most clearance in this area and then probably upgrade to that.

Also so mate if you won the boost bottle, you could send me a cheque I guess I could  do that for anyone on the forum, you would just have to wait for the cheque to clear. Let me know.

Also I was thinking anyone wanting to do the upgrade on the cooling head, please take note.  I strongly recommend that you get the right tools for the job. Removing the head securing bolts can be difficult at the best ot times and an allen key frankly does not do the job. Get a set of allen drivers, if you ruin the head of bolt, meaning you can't get it unscrew it, the only way you could then possibly get the bolts of would be cutting the fins of the head with a grinder so you could get to them.(ouch)  The place I recommended for the screw set has a set of allen drivers for about 9 and they are excellent.

Just a tip - right tools for the right job!

Well I tried my car out with the new head, boost bottle and brakes.

The average temp I'm pretty sure has dropped by 35-40 F

The R12 brakes with a light sanding are a big improvement ( its stops significantly quicker)

Acceleraton is very good

 A very happy man indeed

No I am just wanting for my 35mms

doesnt really matter, about servo's fusion dosent put much torque on them so reply time wouldent vary, but speed on which it reaches it max might make a difference, i use futaba s3003 servo's, they r just standard ones, but for a little more they have better ones with more torque and speed.

I was thinking of upgrading my throttle servo to improve off line acceleration and braking. But then I guess if I did this  Iwould want to go in a striaght line so maybe upgrading the steering servo may help in this regard.
