I figured that mower shops wouldn't have them, but thought I would give it a shot since this is pretty much a weed wacker engine. :p

Okay, so I remeasured the squish and averaged about .47mm....

Great info! Thank you.

hmmm...maybe after torquing it, the gasket maker just got that much thinner, which is causing my "extra" compression. I will have to do a reread before I start it up and...

Instead of a paper gasket, I used a liquid gasket that many others have used with gasoline motors. I applied a nice even thin coat. The thin coat that I applied was pretty close to the thickness of...

After reassembling my stock motor with the same parts, it seems to have more compression now...I made sure to check the squish, but can that have anything to do with it? I spaced the magnito and...

Redcat Rampage MT Hitec HS805MG steering servo

I know that this servo is not a direct fit in the MT, so what mods have to be done to make it fit? I have the dual servo set-up. The right servo can get mounted to the chassis because there are two...

Tighten it down all the way and then loosen it 1/4 of a turn. You do not want it locked down, as that will cause premature wear and/or damage to your drive train in the long run.

Aren't they 1.2 volt cells? Why is it a 8.4v battery then?

Either way, I assume that the 8.4 battery still provides more speed than the 7.2 battery, correct? So is it safe to assume that two 8.4...

RE: clutch bell vented vs non vented

Do NOT get a metal spur gear. I have run plastic on all of my savages with no problems. Just set the mesh right and you will be good. If anything were to strip, I would rather have a $4 spur gear,...

RE: clutch bell vented vs non vented

Vented, period.

Keeps the shoes cool, less rotating mass, won't keep debris in the bell.

Dab some blue thread lock on ALL metal/metal screws. If you use any type of electric driver, then make sure not to over torque and/or strip the screws. Put a few drops of after-run oil in the motor...
