    RE: EARTHQUAKE

    It was one of there best out to date but if it doesn't sell you can't keep it around. I still have one custom brand new Earthquake. I made 4 of them all pretty much the same with different bodies and there all still out there plugging along accept the new one sitting on the shelf [:-]

    RE: EARTHQUAKE

    I have a earthquake with the .21 motor,  Truck has been solid minus keeping it tuned right, don't went and found settings for it, got it running right then put it up took it down the next time and with no luck cant get it running again. I have a .18SH laying around and no issues with it. Everything bolts and fits fine, except the .18 has the twist style carb, https://www.urchobby.com/proddetail.php?prod=TE1809D1 Is there a way to make this work still using the slide carbs servo? or do I just need to buy https://www.urchobby.com/proddetail.php?prod=TE1809B2 ???

    Any help would be great. the .18 came of a Volcano S30, and attempting to put it on a 1/8 earthquake...
