    For bashing and play I say have all the power you can and the castle motor is great for that. For racing nothing beats a sensored motor with just the right number of turns for what you are doing,...

    The four pole nature of the motor is what is killing you. For racing the 13.5 will be soft and controllable and the 8.5 is about the limit you can put in one if you want to drive straight on a...

    No problem. Its been a while since I've had a nitro firestorm but I keep an eye on the thread. The best thing to do for any nitro engine is pre-heat it. I use a competition heat. Heats the head...

    900 is very high, 500 is 32.5 (its not a linear scale) my guess is its over 60 or so. The springs that come with the powerstrokes are probably fine, getting a tuning kit of springs is overkill. If...

    I've reduced my once very large RC fleet of vehicles to just a handful and the lovable RS4 made the cut. I only drive it a few times a year and it likely won't be replaced but I can't part with it.

    People run them in 4wd buggy with 6.5 turn motors. I don't know what their 3s capability is, though. You can get the mmpro versions taken from RTRs for about the same price.
