The servos are no good man I put better ones in mine as soon as I got it. The throttle servo was hooped before I even got the thing.

umm lol well , i worked out the first gear i half stripped was because of the engine mount came loose so i only stripped a 1/3 of the gear . so i moded it a bit more and got the engine to mesh really well and there was enough left on the gear to run it , i though il see how it goes for break in and it worked great . but i did a few high speed runs and put a few hard running tanks through it yesty and i fully root"d that gear hahahahaha lol but i have 2 spare ones so tonight il bang a new one in and it should last fine.im still only running 2wd because they sent me the wrong DS's but it seams to be running great on-road handles like a dream with such a good throttle pick up just carries the front wheels

thats sweet man. What shafts did they send you????? If the you have to make them longer or shorter that super easy man. But if I were you I'd put the hpi mt2 18ss shafts and cups in there way stronger. Are you running the 2 speed ot single speed? I just sold 5 single speed gears a while ago for $1 on ebay lol it seems like when I want to buy sonething everyone els does too but when I try to sell sonething I always get nothing lol.

I can drive and record at the same time lol but there really shakey vids

im running the single with the 13t vented clutch bell , hit hammmmmmerz but it has way to much bottom end so il get a 14t axial vented CB but there like $25 rip off i reckon ay . they sent me the DS's for the front to the tranny , so there way to short and i read up on your post about moding them to make them longer but id rather just get the right ones.

the piccos are great engines. Lots of HP and RPM's. Ive never heard anyone complain about them.
I dont think you'll notice any real difference in life span using 25%. You will have to retune a little and you might need to use a cooler plug but other then that you should be fine. I was running 30% for a while but I changed back to 20 at the recommendation of the LHS. He said for bashing the 30% was overkill. Kind of made sense..

Well man the reason I asked it because I bought some sidewinder 25% but I meant to get the 20% and didnt notice till a already used a tank full. It runs great off of the 25 but when you said I might have to run a cooler plug does this make sence My tz has a super hot turbo plug in it and even with the 25% nitro it runs good but it doesnt seem to have the power that everyone said it should have. Its only a wee bit faster then my cvrx

looks good, i cant wait to see some video

i actually wanna get one of the micros. there were come at my lhs for like 70 i think, but i picked up a tornado for that much. it would be nice though to just have one to run inside, or outside when i dont wanna bust out the nitro. but i hate having to deal with batteries.

That's what I have in my Savage. Those engines rock and roll brother. Have you ran it? OH OH, but one thing to watch for is the mid range needle can start leaking and it will make the tune all eradic, keep your eye out for that, if it happens your gonna need new O-rings for the Mid range needle.
