its a volcano pro and it sounds like you need to richen the low and high needles a little, try a 1/4 turn on each and see if that helps

If it dies or sputters at wide open throttle then you are lean. Like ehroof said richen it up adn see what happens.

Ehroof-- Do you think the 2 speed clutch bell from the associated NTC3 will fit the bb? It looks the same as the hpi threaded set-up but you can go up to 22/27t on the gears. Any thoughts?

i have a ntc3+, if you want i can check the mesh of the bell with the hpi or redcat bell, i doubt its the same since the team associated has sae screws and hardware not metric.

That would be great, but I kinda jumped the gun again and ordered the set-up before I even asked. Are the trannies about the same design? Maybe I can swap the guts of the trannies again. Any thoughts on the clutches pictured earlier? I have no idea what the set screws are all about.

the tranny's are some what the same but are in a different configuration. maybe the grub screws are to adjust the distance of the shoe from the clutch bell to set engagement rpm

Interesting....This is the first clutch set I've got like that so i was a little dumbfounded. Do you have a picture of the NTC3?

I found decent pic on ebay and I see what you mean about the different tranny set-up. I guess alll I can do Is try. Whats the worst that can happen? lol

How are the races? Living in Montana I don't even think we have any. Any videos? I've made a few of jumps and good wrecks but no races. The best race we get is from one end of the block to the other.

I have a little dvd camcorder. How do you post video's? Sorry for the dumb question but I'm kinda computer retarded. All I've been doing so far is burning copies and sending them to whoever wants one. I've got a good one of the death of the Jato. The poor plastic arms weren't exactly made for jumping.

I use windows movie maker then upload to putfile. If you use movie maker just plug your cam to the computer using a usb plug, and download with movie maker.

I'm talking a couple hours of video though. Is that o.k.? What kind of hose is used to mark out the tracks? My brother in-law owns a hose and rubber shop so it would be easy enough to get but he's stumped when I try to explain what it looks like.
