Mike, The red dampeners are stiffer than the stock ones if these are for your Raptor 30's or 50's (Pv0382). Rick's carries Infinavation "O" ring dampeners. Part # TDRaptor30-50 orTDRaptor60-90. Looking forward to your July funfly.

a metal head might be very good to get also. The plastic ones are good. but i think the metal ones would be better.

You should be just fine with the plastic head and TT Red dampers.

my mains clipped the tail running red dampeners and a plastic head (606 main and 90mm tail)

I now run a TT metal head with button and Carbon Xtreme dampeners for the metal head. Also only 85mm tails

much happy and alot less roch of the blades on the mainshaft.... problem is the plastic head either wears or never sits that great on the mainshaft and will rock a bit on it.

Loz,

I think your mains were a bit too long for your tails and vice versa.

Many guys flying 600mm blades can go all the way to 92mm tails without incident (on healthy red dampers). They are true 600 blades, unlike the ones you were flying - which I'm guessing were MAH's?

Not saying it can't happen, but many have been successful with 600/92 combo on reds. Myself included.

I agree with your comment on the plastic head. If its new AND fits well, it will last about a summer. Once that slop develops, it just gets worse real quick.

I like running, as a bare minimum, a metal head for bling, performance and safety.

How are the carbon extreme dampers identified? I found a set in a used head that had white plastic cups with an oval hole for the spindle, two black o-rings inside the cup, and an extra pair of thicker washers outside the o-rings.

The MAH blades are 603mm and do work well with 85mm tail blades.
