    That's good to hear, glad to see you around!

    The only downside to diesel is the smell. It sticks with you for a long time. My buddy and I just call it 'stink'. I think it has more BTUs than...

    Sharon told another guy I talk to more recently that they are not getting out of model engines altogether, they just aren't making any engines for a period of time likely longer than shorter. So...

    Maybe I'm weird, maybe not. Both of my 4-cycles have a distinct smell that seems very different than the 2-strokes. Granted, I don't run much nitro in most of my engines so I don't know if that...

    So do I. But being 4-strokes more completely burn the fuel, they should have a different exhaust smell than a 2-stroke.

    I had my doubts as to its performance for one. And for two I figured it would have taken longer to set it up. Then again, in my haste I waterlogged it pretty good. I'm glad you talked me into it...

    I'm a weirdo and use all castor goo in my fuel so most of my engines smell the same. 2-strokes smell different than 4-strokes but that's the only difference I smell.

    Going from 10% nitro down to 5% nitro will require a slightly leaner needle setting.

    It sounded to me like it was missing periodically, especially towards the end. Actually, it sounded more like a glow 4-stroke set real rich than a spark ignition gas 4-stroke. But what do I know.

    The pivot point is just a metal rod going through a hole in the vertical stabilizer. It is a primitive hinge of sorts, and needs a more solid type of hinge mechanism. It has some movement that is...

    You measured the O.D of the neck of the carb where it goes into the engine and not the top above the throttle valve, right?

    That makes sense. The choke size of my SH .28 monster truck engine is 9.1mm and makes gobs of power. Maybe sourcing a car carburetor will do the trick?

    I've had zero issues with the plastic gears running the 3.3. The 3.3 is adequate power but the carb is small and it's not timed real hot. It would rev a lot higher and make more power with a...

    I got it brand new off RCU for $40. It took a couple gallons to really run well but it was a fantastic runner out of the box. It turns a 9x5 APC at almost 16k without a muffler.
