    RE: Large scale FAQs. New to large scale!? Read this first!!

    Um, I've been into large scale for a year now, and in RC for 20 years. I think that qualifies me to be able to inform noobs on the basics of large scale. Time flies huh?

    I'm a VERY fast learner, and when I get into something I invest ALL my time in it. I'd be the first to say I'm no expert, YET, but I'm certainly getting there. All of this is info is from my own experience and written by my own hand, no other sources. By the way, louie, it was a quiet day at work.

    Anybody using a leaner ratio than 25:1 is using special synthetics usually, the manual and common sense says that for maximum engine life, use a ratio of 25:1.

    Amsoil has several blends... and they have 2 cycle oils for different style engines. Each individual one performs best with that particular type of question... That is what I'm asking... what amsoil blend are people using?

    Saber, HP Injector, Dominator?

    Ah, I see, sorry for the confusion. I have no personal experience of Amsoil, I don't think it's sold in Greece.

    RE: Large scale FAQs. New to large scale!? Read this first!!

    Yeah its made in Wisconsin here in the states. I was curious to ask how it'd get to Greece

    I absolutely love amsoil, its all I use in my 2 strokes.

    They say it can go 100:1, its what I've ran my snowmobiles and dirtbikes at. I'll have to give it a shot.

    FOXY...you got all the answers but you don't have the right question for me. I'm trying to find out the width and length of a MDC Baja 1000 body for a custom build I'm doing. Got any idea?

    Sorry bud, I don't. Feel free to make a new thread about it (I assume you mean the Asgard trophy truck body), as not many people will look at this FAQ, if they've already seen it. It's not the best place to ask questions relating to specific models. I'm sure someone on the forum will know, or be able to measure for you.
