    the club coupons don't work like that anymore. They are unique to your own account. for 10 bucks, it's a great deal. I've been a member a long time, and my renewal is only 5 bucks now.

    yeah, i'm thinking OSU had the right idea. Also, the roller condition has to be considered. Is it clean? I'm thinking if it's beaten, maybe 225...if it's stellar, maybe 300. upgraded drive shafts are...

    I've been saying this for ages...if you're done with the stock setup, and you want a 5mm shaft, get the 2650 with a mm2. That's where it's at. Then get a castle field programmer and turn the punch...

    That's really hard to do on a stock setup. I had to put a bunch of weight up front to keep the nose down. Congrats on that.

    I was on the fence about buying a 2650 over a 2200. I've got a couple...

    mosty likely it's the MIP cvds. Any excess glue/loctite will make the joints bind after they dry. The only fix for it is to run it. Give it a half a pack or so and it should free itself up. I've got...

    i've been dyeing parts for a long time. If i were you, i'd double up on the turkey pan in case of any minor leaks. the rule of thumb is to boil enough water to completely submerge the chassis.
