    RE: Official Hyper 8 Thread

    46u is right. That rtr will not make a racer. If you bought it thru paypal, you can still file a claim.

    RE: Official Hyper 8 Thread

    The OS RG was a great piece. The new VG is a great running design, but it will not last. I bet they go back to the ABC. I have and do run STS, but I would not suggest it to others. If $200 is the...

    The factory H8 and H8.5 bodies are identical down to the last cut, curve, and hole. Perhaps they had a bunch of extras:eek:

    RE: Official Hyper 8 Thread

    In my two 8.5s, the front and rear are just standard. I do not see why you would want one any other place than the center. The Spider diff is around 15g heavier. I sold my 8 for around a $50 loss,...

    Agreed. You might even try Proline' Step up.

    RE: Official Hyper 8 Thread

    Well yeah, at some point, all you will be able to buy is the ext. version. I just do not buy that 0.079" added to both ends makes that much difference. You know the placebo effect is very real;)

    RE: Official Hyper 8 Thread

    Jeff,

    Do you think the FR2 is worth the money? Not to mention you'll need the new brace setup???

    The VG is a good motor (very nice bottom end), but those sleeves do not last. 3-5 Gallons...

    46U,

    I just got done reading all 57 pages of this thread[:@] and I have a couple of questions.

    -Did you ever compare the stock pipe to your 0403?

    -What differences did you find in the...

    RE: STS .30 questions...

    If you are going to run 20%, remove all the shims except the thinest copper shim. Start leaning now. Lean more on the HSN than the LSN. Run a MC59 until you have a handle on the tune. If you want...

    RE: any info on the STS .30 REV2

    That is correct.

    The MC59 being a med/hot plug also increases timing, and seems to tune easier. The MC8 will allower higher rpm as it retards timing. The MC9 does not seem practical for this...

    RE: any info on the STS .30 REV2

    Your HSN is way too fat. Leave the LSN at 5.75, and start leaning the HSN. Richen the LSN just enough to keep the temp below 255F every time you go leaner with the HSN. Do not be surprised if your...

    RE: OFFICIAL CUSTOM NITRO RUSTLER THREAD

    The TZ and modified Sirio make more power than the 3.3. They made lots of nasty power! As a matter of fact, I still have the Sirio. I would let it go for a song. The Sirio was easy to install. ...

    For the motor, you might also consider a STS. They make excellent .12s. I bought a few on a deal, and I could let one go for a song[sm=wink_smile.gif] The...

    RE: STS engine

    I like the D21T as well. My son runs one in his XB8. I think it might be a little better than the V-spec that it replaced.

    The motor is a good choice, but I think I would go with Factory Team kit as opposed to the RTR. You did say you were going to race.
