RE: Factory Tracks Raceway MT racers

Sounds like the repinch of your cylinder sleeve went awry. Your no longer producing compression through the exhaust port into the pipe to push fuel. So in essence you have a bad repinch of the...

RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

Stripping transmission gears eh? this begs the question of what the heck are you doing to these trucks to strip tranny gears? I have had my 4.60 for three years now and not once have I ripped a gear...

RE: Looking for a new truck

Well since you seem to have it narrowed down to two trucks my vote is for the MGT 8.0, however, the GST 7.7 is a good truck as well, tough decision to make.

RE: I Need nitro MT Purchase Direction!

RE: Factory Tracks Raceway MT racers

Are there any restrictions for the MT class for racing? For instance running a 1/10th scale with 1/8th scales or a 2WD MT w/4WD MT's? The reason I ask is I have been eyeing the Schumacher Havoc for...
