    Haven't been here in forever!

    I swear it's been a long time! I haven't ran my LST in who knows how long either. Easily over a year and a half. I finally got to run it today though. Only for about 40 minutes though. Ran outta juice! but, also had some carnage! haha. LRP is a monster though. forgot that. took 2 tires off the rim. Flipped over itself a few times on demand. Forgot how fun this truck was.

    Here's my truck..



    aaaaaaand... my clutch bell! the spurs are TiNi.

    Thanks! The chassis is alright. I think my truck weighs in around the high 11s, low 12s. And yeah, about those pinions gears...[:-] Looks like I gotta go get some more so I can tear up more grass!

    It's the tinis that did it!! Just run plastic - I've never shredded plastic spur gears on my LST2's..(maybe once, not sure, been over five years..)

    Nice truck..

    Thanks Herr, I've been through a set of plastic spurs before, but my CB nut came off somehow and shredded em up. soo, I had to go TiNi! :P

    TAK I don't really recall the seller, but I got the chassis, and the two upper decks for IIRC about $130 shipped on eBay around geez, probably 5+ years ago.

    RE: Haven't been here in forever!

    I have the TiNi clutchbell gears on my .28 LST2, but I keep the plastic spurs. I've never needed to replace a spur gear on any of my LST2's thus far in the 5 years I've had them. I tried a steel spur gear on my Nitro Rustler some years back, and it ate the non-hardened clutchbell for dinner after 5 tanks of fuel with the gear mesh set perfect.

    I think the trick is having a TiNi or hardened clutchbell and TiNi spurs and perfect mesh to keep them to stay alive any length of time.

    Either way, its a sharp looking LST2. I think the LST platform is the best out there.

    RE: Haven't been here in forever!

    Thanks 10wk, yeah, it SEEMED like my gear mesh was just right, guess not though. I dunno. I'll just get a FEW more pinions next time I hit up my LHS.

    When I bought the LST, I too thought it was THE mt own...huge shocks, it was massive, large engine and the XS3 to boot. I still think it's the best truck out there, though.

    RE: Haven't been here in forever!

    I think so too.. I still am amazed sometimes running mine, after years with it, how balanced it is.. The engine(i.e. center of balance) is more centrally located than on the most modern racing buggies..
