    heyy all...

    im pretty new to the r/c world.
    i got my car about 4 months back.
    im from perth in australia

    ive got a hpi rush an have done a few slight modifications too it
    ie. manifold, exaust, thicker shock oil , heavy duty servo's, proline tires, bigger air intake.
    im running 15% nitro atm an she is nicely tuned...
    ive gone through 3 diff's so far, they just dont seem to hold
    ( any one have any sugestions on locking diff's or heavy duty types )

    an also does any one else have a car like mine and suggest good hop ups for it an good ways to get more power out of it?

    i dont race officially just with mates who all own 4wd... much to my disadvantage...

    so hi all an ur coments on my car are much appreciated

    ummm not too sure.
    my manifold an pipe are tuned for top end though i still have stock ratio's on all gears...
    it has a delayed power band but kiks pretty hard wen its warm....

    any help on the diff prob's an also a home job supercharger...
    risky but my plans are all working out so far...:)

    forced induction... nitrous injection...
    atm im workin on a cold air intake for my car! the theory is gold!
    not that much of a proformance enhancer as above but i like it...
    and also a lock-diff project... not recomended but i like to be different...

    has any one else dun any custom mods to their cars

    the cold air intake sounds good. i dont see any flaws with that. i think you can buy those on ebay.
