RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

I wish i had an answer for that. I'd love to have an accurate method as well. I wonder if temping some water, or any object with a standard "mercury type" thermometer would be more of an accurate...

RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

Thats very true wingwrecker. Its a very opinionated topic at best. My experience has brought me the longest life, and best running motors, with warm break ins. So i stick with it. Running indoors...

RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

IMO, that breakin was not warm enough. I would have wrapped the head immediately to get those temps near 200. I wouldnt even wanna run a nitro engine at 150 for any period of time. Too much stress...

RE: The new Kyosho MFR

TRD? Whats TRD? Well, i ran the truck today at the track. First off, the truck handles really well. The suspension is pretty much super plush, and perfect for our crazy new track layout. Which...

RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

Yup, thats the one problem with this truck. Not many motors drop right in easily. The axial .28 happens to have that goofy angle to the HSN. I dont think that changes. Though i dont care for my...

RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

Well, i've never ran that fuel, but i can tell you fuel brand/quality can play a HUGE role in how easily an engine tunes, and how well it runs. I'd guess that fuel, and this stock motor were a bad...
