    RE: 2spd one way bearing

    OK so you're supposed to oil these things? I got about 10 gallons on the 1st one and have 8 on number 2. Maybe oiling them will make them last longer. Worth a go I guess.

    RE: Best 1/10 Nitro MT for Bashing

    I find this interesting as the Revo is usually classed as 1/8 in MT racing. I reckon it is truly a dual purpose machine. If I was going to buy one right now I would be looking at the mini MGT, the...

    RE: gas lines

    Well it has to be long enough to get there. This was purely a smartalecky answer. I've not found any differences in performance with different lengths other than upsidedown run time as mentioned.

    RE: aftershock standing still

    Something was seriously out of whack if you couldn't get a wheelie with a Mach427, heck, even the M26ss is capable of flipping the truck over. That said, the spec 3 is supposed to be hotter than the...

    RE: aftershock standing still

    The one way bearing in the low gear spur sounds like it is slipping if it will rev but not move and then suddenly take off. Pulll the spur gear off and hose the OWB, in the center of the spur, with...

    RE: Another one bites the dust...

    Hey RR, if you can get a 1/32 drill bit in the idle gap that's about equal to 3/4 of a millimeter and a place to start and call it factory setting. Another rare but possible problem might be the...
  11. RE: How to get to BDC w/ pull start, and How important is After Run procedure?

    RE: Starter help!

    I can't recall who told me this but it surely does work. Pull the filter off and pour some fuel in the carb and tilt the vehicle so the OWB is lowest and work the crank back and forth by the flywheel...
  13. RE: How to get to BDC w/ pull start, and How important is After Run procedure?

    I wouldn't advise this but you could call everyone else a liar and stupid by oh making sure the piston was at TDC when done and let it cool there, not using ARO and report back at 8 gallons on how...

    I'd say that you may have got a wierd engine again given the Mach 427 reputation. I don't mean to sound upity but you don't know it all, a lot maybe but not all. Don't be so sensitive and have...

    RE: severe glitching

    I agree on trying another battery. If the 4 x AA battery holder is available, try that. Just sitting still that setup would show up a faulty battery pack. I had one that a bar had come unsoldered on...

    The grub screws on the front and back side of the tranny should line up with each other, one way to tell if one of the screws loosened and let the cup spin.

    They come with the spin start adapter in the box with the truck, leastways mine did. If so, you're good to go. Just pull the pullstart off and put the adapter on.
