    Any rocker recommendations?

    Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone has these rockers http://www.hobbyetc.com/item.cgi?part_id=62557\

    I just dont want to pull the trigger if anyone has had issues with these rockers? I mostly do a lil light ofroading and high speed bashing in parking lots. I see the above mentioned rockers have two mounting holes, for progressive spring tension. Any thoughts?

    Thanks everyone in advance.

    I was also looking at ordering this engine mount to help assist with some heat transfer http://www.hot-racing.com/index.cgi?...=VXS1801;c=455

    I'm running 3 cell and 23 tooth pinion, want to help the motor as much as I can with keeping the temps down and some heat transfer awat from the motor.

    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.

    They also make them in carbon fiber. Debating aluminum or carbon fiber at this point? Any thoughts hehe?

    Would carbon fiber be too brittle on jumps and abuse? I love the carbon fiber look, just worried about longevity.

    I made front rockers out of pure carbon, and thrashed the heck out of my MERV at the skatepark until the chassis broke, and the carbon rockers were intact. I went back to stock because they needed to be constructed with a little more precision, there were no bearings or bushings, the surprising part was the screws threaded into the carbon fiber. I like the HR look but I am turned off by the fact that there's only one plate holding the pushrod, it isn't captured.
    I like turtles.

    Nothing wrong with trying - you get an A for effort

    So the product descriptions state they are rear rockers, and i dont see front rockers? Can I order 4 rear rockers, and use them all around on 4 corners?

    no the rears are different, they won't work up front. They do make fronts you just have to find them

    It was definitely worth the build, especially because they were durable. The precision wasn't perfect because I made them with a minimum number of dremel accessories. Now that I have a drill-press type dremel attachement I could probably make some good quality ones, they would look so good with rocker arm bearings
    I like turtles.
