Probably less with setting the gap but more importantly indexing the plugs so they all set towards the correct valve once seated into the head. LOL
So Chris you need to add little washers on each plug. :)

Great work bud, keep plunging away with your project so I can see some more updates!

Bill those look pretty cool. Are you running any negative offset to give room for your rear end and disc brakes?

Looks like you will need to do some body work and open up those wheel wells for those big boys!
Nice work!

Joe, if you have already cleared your tubs and the polyurethane has hardened on top, the decals are not coming off with Hot Water. That is like a hard candy coating that will only come off with a lacquer thinner or some sort of solvent.

I have never tried it and not sure if it will work, but since it is a much smaller part then 1/10th scale.. that I use to work with. Try the Purple Power, based on another RC Car forum I use to be on all the time... They are saying it will not affect your CA Glue at all, so they shouldn't fall apart on you.

So you should be safe, I can't say for sure as I have never tried it. :D

That pic of the red car is Mike Coopers 63 Pontiac Tempest. I actually talked to he and his wife a couple years back when he was just getting into the pro mod scene at the Super Chevy in Topeka Kansas. He was doing some test runs nice car and a hole s### load of money in that carbon fiber body.
