Ouch, sorry about your arm.

But like I said before, people saying it breaks, everything will break if you slam it into a solid object at full throttle.!

BTW Which air filter are you using, looks good.

And what about that mod you were telling me about, something about the brake.?

Thanks.

lol the arm was last summer lol i dont know what air filter i bought it at my lhs they repacage everything in there own brand bags lol so not sure

for the brakes all you do is remove the gear box then move all the brake parts to the front of the gear box when youve dont that just pit it back together lol


if you dont want a front break just move the parts od the brake linkage to the way i have mine it makes it more responcive

I know that brake trick :P

Nah I took off the front brake, I like having only the rear brake.

It lets it slide around a bit..

Reminds me, I gotta clean my airfilter, its a whole differient colour lol.

How did ya manage to loose your stock airfilter lol.!?

Mine fell off while driving, Luckily I noticed it and shut the engine right off, if you look closely now I zip tie all my air filters as tight as I can lol.

I think my fuel filter needs cleaning, but I cant be less bothered now, my desk looks like sand pit and it was just cleaned.!

I shouldnt have sprayed WD 40 on the sand lol, everythings crumbling off. ON my desk.!!!

I shall go and clean my air filter now [8D]

The wing being bent, someones lower arm breaking.

All that ive ever broken was a steering servo (MY fault, EPA's set at 125) and shock end (My fault, rammed into a solid object @ full throttle)

Ill be picking up an Axail .28RR.

Anyone hear of that, how's it preform.?

Yeah I sorted that thing out lol.

Yeah I oiled it good, but it like popped, it expanded so fast.

Ill try that next time im gonna clean it lol.

I normally first clean it with nitro, then with dish soap, dry it down, and then oil it.

Does anyone know why the foam expands so much..?

Yupp.

I have the same drama with mine.

The temps are like the weather, change when they want to.!

Ive given up trying to tune this engine, just let it run rich.

I get smoke coming outta the glow plug hole a lot, I dont bother anymore.

I think its normal, not too sure tho.

Try and keep it running a lil' bit rich, and try keeping the temps inbetween 240 - 260

Would run fine.
