    My OS 30VG has O-rings on the pinch bolt. No leaks there.

    Most of my other engines require sealing around the pinch bolt. Of course they don't use O-rings.

    RE: Goodbye, my friends.

    It won't pick back up if people like you keep leaving.

    I've quit a few forums and always due to poor moderation. At least I don't see that here.

    Anyway, I hope you change your mind.

    RE: Is it worth balancing wheels

    Balancing doesn't do much on MT or Buggy wheels (because the tire turns into a bagel shape at high speed and throws off your balance job).

    RE: Stuck pinion set screw

    I think the concern is thread-locker on the setscrew threads, so use a little heat and immediately try to loosen the setscrew.

    RE: Stuck pinion set screw

    It may have thread-locker on it. A small amount of heat will help. Not a lot as you don't want to ruin anything. 3 to 5 seconds with a small butane torch should be all it needs to soften the...

    Just kidding. But if that 5B has street tires on hot pavement and with a heavy pipe on the rear-end... I notice it doesn't wheelie in grass... and it is an off-road vehicle.

  23. RE: What was your favorite nitro engine and what was your worst.

    The Team Associated .15 in my NTC3 was an absolute jewel.
