ok i can play again i took the rear tranny shaft to work and fused the ball back on with a TIG welder x-rayed it and got full fusion durring the fusion the tig arcked out and melted the pins so i drilled the pin out and ground down an allen wrench cut it off about 1/64th longer and 1/64th bigger in diameter and ground a lead in (30 deg) bevel and pressed it in havent tested it yet outside but the truck does roll with minimal noise. and the dog bones are made from recycled chinese steal slightly heat treated kinda cheap if you ask me

Man i have typed that out so many times on this thread Im just going to type out an entire page or ten of all the stuff that I found to work and how to do it I will post everything I know once and then every time I get asked ill just send it as a pm lol. Just read the last few pages or so of this thread and you'll see what works out and then if you have any questions ask me. Its just getting to the point that this thread is getting jammed with the same things over and over and over and over and over.

retrosoul relax man lol ill get you the stuff just stay calm lol I had some repairs to do om both my rc's today Ill start typing it out tomorrow K

uhoo that thing is sweet I like the sound of that BB!!!! I think im going to go with the lrp z28r of the picco that my friend has(if it doesnt end up in his revo)

peewee there are no hpi axles that will just go right in if you want to use the hpi axles your going to have to change alot of parts man. Im making a list of everything that I have done to my tsunami and putting it up here and in the compatible parts thread as well. I hope to have it all done within the next day or so with all the part numbers and what nots you'll need to do it all up.

cheers boys , the next vid will be better that was just at my place . il take it sum where bigger and do sum more high speed runs . and the reason its not picking up the front wheels is because i softend it right up in the rear and it squats like a drag car and just hooks up .

I just took out my cvr and am going to put my sh engine in it I ported and polished it and took it to my buddies shop and he put the crank on some mini balancing maching and did some work on the conrod. (and one more secret performance mod) lol ill let you guys know how my secret mods worked before I tell you what I did just so I dont get any laughs if it wont run lol. But the way I look at it if its the same as any other 2 cycle engine its going to have a bit more power. Its still like a brand new engine with just over one galon through it. I hope its going to work good cuz my cvr is kinda getting tired.

GRRRRRR the only thing thats stopping me from putting in that sh engine is I lost my 2.5mm allen wrench!!!! wat a bummer. Any ideas on how I can get the sleve out of my cvr??? I took it appart to port it and its all rusty another bummer the sleve should just slide out but its stuck.

its easy to do man just clamp them in a vice when you tack weld them and they wont warp much. Just make sure that you have a spring pin that tight on the bone. So far Iv modded about 20 bones and never ever a problem
