    I moved the blue stripe springs up front and going to try the purple stripe in the rear. See how that handles!

    There the hot racing rvo2706mr. With these rockers you want to run flat head screws not stock button head
    Had a few more titanium hollow balls fail. Replaced them with the stock steel

    Don't believe so. Stock bolts will work but flat heads are better going into a hollow ball

    Wouldn't a flat head ruin the bearing?

    I think what 50 means is countersunk screws would be better that the cap heads that are stock
    6S OR NOTHING............................ maybe 5s

    Yep. Cap screws work better with the stock rocker that has a top&bottom and the hollow ball is in the middle

    If my MIPs end up breaking (I hope they won't, but I've read here and there that MIP quality is now what it once used to be), I'll seriously look into getting Ball-X. The only thing about them that I don't like is how they're only CVDs on one side. Half-CVDs, essentially.

    Hello 50togo,

    quick question if i may, I see you got a HPP motor brace. It mentions on their website it works up to 20/54.. have you tried running with any larger Pinions, as my road set up as a 21/54, any info would be cool. Cheers in advance

    Did you remount your motor for high center of gravity position? I've installed the optional spur that came with my Revo, and remounted the motor. In the end this is how my brace adjustment looks like:

    I can't help but think that I did something wrong, or didn't do something. I've seen quite a few pictures of others here with HPP braces, but noone seems to have theirs so far "down"...

    So you'd say that my engine's position in relation to the brace is normal?

    I never ran that low of gearing with the brace but you look good. You don't plan on going lower right? I think most others you have seen are running probably around 21/54 and that would bring it up some more
