    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...

    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...

    Never tried one, probably never will. The smallest debris particle fouls up the mixture. They are prone to o-ring shrinkage more than other carbs which makes them impossible to adjust properly when...

    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.

    The PR people that write manuals are numbskulls. Those temps are barely on par for a methanol engine and gasoline burns a lot hotter. Sad, I do agree it's disappointing they're having issues.
