this really works if you put some wd-40 or super oil etc.. any thing oily in with it works well.. but make sure you like the smell of the lip balm you put in.. cleaning the diff now from bad smelling lip balm (didnt smell it before i put it in)

Nice tip.....you can also use a small zip tie on the body pins as well for easier grasping.

It just makes it easier, especially if you have sweaty hands like me.

C of G

Welll we have the science soooo finely tuned that we notice the difference in center of gravity that adding zip ties to the clips adds.
ANY weight that is above the c of g adds to rollovers and traction rolls....lol
and ya its just 1/2 inch of zip but when the other guy isnt doing it he has an advantage. we have these things sooo slammed now that they pretty much wont roll over on carpet with out the help of clippingf a pipe of getting hit by another car. just tooo bad the parts are getting a bit scarce... we have managed to buy up about 20 pairs of foams and axles front 1 ways knuckles and frt shafts but still looking for aluminum frt pulleys like GH used to make but are hard to find.(although you just know that some obscure hobby shop ordered 12 dozen instead of just 12) and would love to flog them at any pricelol
