ORIGINAL: On2_n_On4

this is like listening to the same song over and over and over and over............ :D but funny at the same time. :D

everything in this hobby is expensive.
if you like to buy aftermarket parts for your rc....do the same you do before you buy your fav. car/truck.... SEARCH before you buy it., or leave it stock.

have you seen the price and size of a good pipe made for a smaller nitro engine??? what makes you think a pipe (6/7/8 times bigger) will be cheap? :eek:

like I said,
yes... rc cars and parts are not cheap, but if u think you cant deal with it u have only 2 choices,,,leave it stock or get out of the hobby before is too late. :D


yeah the song is old already..
song goes, some think they need to spend more than what they need to, and you must spend top dollar, cuz the cheaper is not good... booring song
and yeah I do know what a decent pipe for nitro cost cuz I have a Jammin JP-4 Hardcoat on my Losi and love it!!
I think is was a bit over 100bucks for it..

cant deal with it???
not sure where that comes from unless someone is trying to push an over priced $300 pipe on someone that a $170 pipe will do the same if not more [:-]
all this does for me is show me the JetPro pipe is the one for me

Never said $300 is expensive, just over priced when you have a pipe that's does the same for almost 1/2 the price :)
now back to the OP and away from someone selling an over priced pipe on this thread, they have a market place on RCU for that ;)

Ok video is being done tommorrow at 1 pm you will be able to find it under zuluvxl on youtube and I will get it posted on here. We film at 1 pm pacific standard time. Nice HD footage. On another note man these trucks fly great. I have been hitting my table top on my property catching about 6 feet of air and length of flight was about 16 feet. Smooth landing though flys very nicely lol

Sorry all...

My post had nothing to do with pipes ect.... not even going to get ANYthing...until it is proven, and I sell all my other rc cars buggies....
1500$ for a Gas Truck!..... I will stick with my radio shack truck.... It goes back and forth.... and turns... what else does a guy need???
TOO expsensive!....:D:D
I will wait for zzang Fang GUNG HUNG... to come out and copy the **** out of this truck and charge HALF the price!.... :D
NOT....[X(]

I was on my soap box about how no one wants to pay what things are worth today.... As most haven't a clue as to what is involved, when trying
to actually MAKE something....

It is the reason we are in the economic crisis were are in today.... and it will get worse...

You could have been talking about BUBBLE GUM.....

You just struck a nerve... And I went off...

Nothing personal....

I am guessing the bluing is from where they welled it when it was made.

Glad to see the economy has not affected some.

Lucky you I wanted to order one but I missed them before they took off for there wedding vacation lol.... that is the 7 hp version right? The 4 bolt zenoah?

RE: Official Losi 26cc 5IVE-T Thread
 
there's a new 4wd torque monster engine coming out sometime this week from obr for the losi....the 30.5 long rod is claimed 7hp but the 27.2 is still the daddy at 7.5hp (both using a vrc pro)...makes more torque too from idle and more peak torque even though it's at 500rpm higher
and speaking of vrc pros...the losi is getting it's own too, vrc are working on it as we speak...obr will have them shortly...cost i'd expect to be the same as the other propipes so $229[8D]

There are several pipes available now. Flowsystem, Bartalone and Jetpro. More on the way. Here are some Flowsystem Losi and Bajas from the weekend.
