RE: Tornado s30 emgine problem
Yes, as John said this hobby takes a certain kind of person. I often tell people running a nitro car amongst a group of other nitro guys is kind of like a badge of honor. They only work for a few tanks before you have to make them work. Then it's not just about how it runs but everything else. Can you get it to idle well? Stop right? Handle good? These are all things that take the user to make happen. After a short while, everything starts to wear and it's up to you to adjust as needed. Like John said, it's a good feeling after all your going through, to be able to diagnose and repair the problems, and then enjoy the end result. Believe me, we've all had problems, sometimes crazy problems that nobody has ever heard of, but if your determined you'll get through them. To me nitro is the only way to go. I have two electric trucks for my kids, and they work great, but without the sound and smoke it's just not the same. We all know brushless has far surpassed nitro, but to me it's not just about speed. I get satisfaction when I can take my truggy out and fire it up with one pull. Watch it stop on a dime and listen to it purrrr.
