    RE: Official XTM X-Cellerator thread!!

    I hope they can handle the abuse, the next upgrade will be the rear arms in aluminum.

    RE: Official XTM X-Cellerator thread!!

    yeah, no kidding huh? i actually had it in my head to go out in the garage and make myself a set of extra thick aluminum arms(front&rear) and just buy the aluminum bulk head. i dont race so weight isnt that important to me.

    I have a custom aluminum front shock tower, a member of the Gobal forums made it for me. Fits perfectly but it is scratched. It was his second one and I did a review on it-I got it for free.

    I only have 2 cars, a Traxxas Sport and XC. I don't even drive my Sport, just a roller that I want to start a project on.

    RE: Official XTM X-Cellerator thread!!

    the ntc3 is a .15. i see alot of adds that say pipes are for .15 to .18, but i dont believe them. one day just for fun i put my stock t-maxx pipe on my x-c. that pipe just killed any type of performance or pep for that matter. yes, i know its a stock restrictive p.o.s pipe, but like i said it was all for fun. i couldnt tell you about that particular pipe because i went the opposite direction. after looking at quite a few pipes and reading alot of posts, i bought an hpi hellfire pipe from e-bay. i figured if it was made for a big block, what would it do for the xtm .18? if you consider the fact that the .18 is right under bb territory, it makes some sense. now i know alot of people are going to talk about backpressure and pulses,etc..., but in the end it worked for me. it woke up the motor, it has a more linear acceleration, and what seems like alot more torque/power. ive read of other people putting bb pipes on the x-c with great success and alot of praise over what it brings to the party. i hope that helps you a little bit in you search for more power.

    Any small block pipe will work, and when they say ".15-.18" its true. A Hellfire pipe? Haha That makes no sense what-so-ever.I might have to try that though. mmmmm...
    A great pipe combo is the Drake header and an AE FT pipe.

    the AE torque-tuned pipe is great for any small block that I've run for more bottom-end punch. the top end pipe with a .12CVR in my RC10GT was enough to wheelie on command

    RE: Official XTM X-Cellerator thread!!

    this is why i didnt knock the ae pipe, i dont know anything about it except for what ive read. i dont see how a bb pipe doesnt make sense.

    .15=2.5
    .18=3.0
    .21=3.5
    .26=4.2
    .28=4.6

    the difference in each motor is "about" +/- 5cc. almost every article ive read online or on the stand says a 2-stroke motor needs flow. now im not saying that different pipe configurations within the same size motor range are junk, most people are very happy with a pipe they have. that bb pipes do the same thing as the sb pipes, in that they cover the .21 - .28 range of motors. like i said "it woked for me". im just a basher so "skies the limit". im actually thinking about following hpi and turning my 4-tec into a 4wd stadium truck[X(]. anyways its just food for thought. havving a small fortune in different pipes is what makes no sence to me and some day ill probably be there.

    it needs airflow...but more important than gross airflow, is proper airflow. Just buy one $25 pipe at a time, and before you know it you can open your own head shop

    RE: Official XTM X-Cellerator thread!!

    guys i need help, i was running my xcell, and for the first tank everything was great, but then on my second tank i started it up, and it had like NO speed at all, like it would rev like mad and go rly not fast, i also noticed alot of white smoke coming out.

    so i put the high speed needle back to factory, and i was tinkering with the low speed needle, and i got it started, didnt get to run it tho, but i did have a chance to do the "pinch test". so it was running and i pinched the line and i noticed that it increased a couple hundred rpm's. like it was increasing for a good 2-3 secs before it died. so i leaned it out a little (proly not the right thing to do...) and then i tried to start if up again BUT the gay pullstarter cord snapped.[:@][:@]

    help....
    im a noob, this is my frist nitro and my first day running it was pretty frustrating [:@][:'(][&o]

    i did the same thing. 2 weeks after i got my x-c i was trying to start it and pulled a little too far. pop! i was left dtanding there with a cord in my hand and a stupid look on my face.


    as far as the bb pipe goes, all i can say is if you got a few extra bucks give it a try. you might likey! in which case i say welcome to the dark side.[sm=devious.gif]

    man! they should have a little darth vader smiley.

    most of HPI's rims will fit...but make sure you get rears AND fronts. they come with adaptors to run with Associated and Losi trucks, and the XC uses Losi style wheels
