Turtle Racing has designed & manufactured this Pull Start to greatly reduce the problems starting your Zen/CY motors. We started with a very heavy duty rope, then we added a double sealed bearing to the Spool. The bearing helped tremendously, no more plastic on plastic friction. We then modified the aluminum spawl, polished it and Teflon Plated it. We designed the housing for proper venting while not allowing debris to enter.
I had a great time up at Thunder Valley last weekend attending their “King of California” race. I left late Friday night and stayed at a local hotel so I could get to the track early on Saturday to setup my live broadcasting gear so those who couldn’t make it could watch from home.
The Team Chase rear shock tower brace is a long awaited for part that replaces the stock tower that is prone to several issues found on all HPI Baja models including the 5b, SS, 5t and 5sc. The first issue with the stock part is the fact that the very important rear shock brace mounts to this area and simply just screws into plastic with no nuts for reinforcement. This is a very significant issue as a lot of weight and stress is put on this area. The Team Chase Rear Shock Tower changes that by adding dual nylock nuts to each brace mounting points.
