Well just broke in my monsoon today after rebuilding my SH.28 motor and it feels good to actually have it able to idle again. I already can tell the power it had lost compared to now being rebuilt. Let it idle for 2 tanks and the ran 2 tanks through it at half throttle. After being down a couple of weeks....New motor....New Losi LPR wheels and tires.... Losi pipe.... new fuel tank.... this sunday at clermonts (dennis') track....[sm=punching.gif] THE RETURN OF THE MONSOON!!!
Well the return of the monsoon lasted about 1.5 hours today![
] Car was running AWESOME with the new losi LRP wheels and tires and this was the first time out with the newly rebuilt SH28. Loved the new power again, Then....... it ran away on me and stuck wide open throttle! AND I HAVE A SPEKTRUM!!! Once I got it back to my bench the motor was locked up![:@][:@] Removed it and found the piston and head pitted and my rod bearing broken and bent the rod. New cylinder, New piston and everthing is now JUNK!!
I do not think I can trust the crank where the rod bearing goes. Time for another motor
BTW the reason why it ran away was my on/off switch went bad and cut power to my reciever at WOT! Since reciever had no juice the failsafe could not work.
