    RE: Kyosho Inferno 7.5 RTR

    The new Inferno US Sports (which will be available here in the US in about a month) includes a metal spur gear, Sanwa digital radio, improved servos (not great but similar to most RTRs) and GX28...

    Poll: RE: Kyosho MP777 vs Hyper 8

    Overall durability and quality is overwhelmingly in favor of the 777. People who have only owned a Hyper will tell you it's the best. People who have owned both will tell you that the 777 is...

    RE: 80+ MPH?! I don't think so...

    Inverted, it's you that lack facts, but like so many others before you, your so-called "facts" are are based on false assumptions more than experience. Your post count is no substitute for real...

    RE: 80+ MPH?! I don't think so...

    Yes, Redcat Racing says it will do 80+ mph in the banner ads it runs on this and many other forums, so you're mistaken. I think you're missing my point, however (as are a few other agenda-driven...

    RE: 80+ MPH?! I don't think so...

    No doubt all valid points, but the standard here is not whether it's believable - obviously it's not to anyone with an ounce of experience. But, consumer protection laws exist to protect people that...

    80+ MPH?! I don't think so...

    I fully expect this to be removed from this forum because it's probably moderated by the people from Redcat, but there is no way that their buggy runs 80+ mph. Bending the truth is one thing, but...

    RE: Kyosho ST-R

    I know what my LHS pays for these trucks - be happy there are dealers that are dumb enough to sell them for no profit. You better buy them now while they're still in business. ;)

    RE: Acme NB16 IRC Vulcan: What happened?

    I've seen two of these come back with serious drivetrain damage and a third with a fatal engine problem, all of which occured after burning less than a tank of fuel - these weren't rookie nitro guys...

    RE: front tire ballooning

    Yeah, you need center diff fluid that's 20,000 to 30,000 wt. I would also use 7000 to 10,000 in the front diff. I don't know if I would have chosen the Hyper 7 as a truck candidate, but as long as...

    RE: Kyosho ST-R

    Where do you race?! I could have used a deal like that. I'm sure it wouldn't be as lucrative if it had to be shipped to Cali, but that sounds like a killer deal.

    RE: TROUBLE WITH NEW AXIAL ENGINE

    Fair enough. Do you have the timing specs on both engines for comparison? As I said, I like the HPI version and find that it runs and tunes well. If the Axial version still has those qualities with...

    RE: LRP Z.18S Pro or O.S. .18 CV-RX ???

    Go for the OS engine. The LRP is just a rebadged SH engine (totally disappointed with LRP, a company that otherwise makes great stuff). SH is the same company that makes XTM, Sportwerks and a few...

    RE: TROUBLE WITH NEW AXIAL ENGINE

    I don't have any confidence in the results of the dyno, so I'll need more solid evidence than that. So, dyno results aside, how is the Axial engine different than the HPI .28 engine other than the...

    RE: Kyosho 777 ST-R Racing Truggy

    I'll be going for the ST-R. I've had Mugens before and I like their quality, but it's not up to par with the Kyosho in my opinion. In addition to being a good quality, I feel the ST-R is more refined...

    RE: explain what a boost bottle is

    The short answer is, don't waste the money. There is no measureable benefit to "boost bottles" on nitro engines in my experience.

    RE: Kyosho Mini Inferno

    Well, you're pretty much making my point for me. The Mamba, for better or worse, was one of the first brushless motors to become popular. Inexperienced owners of minis (1/16 and 1/18) flocked to the...

    RE: Kyosho Mini Inferno

    I get so sick of people talking smack about a product they've never run and I'm calling BS. The Mini Inferno doesn't have twin 370 motors, it has a single 380 brushed motor. If you knew anything...

    RE: TROUBLE WITH NEW AXIAL ENGINE

    These are the same as the engines in the HPI Savage, so even though they're not very powerful they tune easily and run pretty well. I think you need to learn to tune a little better. Take the engine...

    RE: irvine 20 buggy engine, what fuel?

    That might be a ringed engine, in which case you'd want to use a fuel with a higher oil percentage. Stay away from fuel below 12 percent oil. It's a lot of oil for an ABC engine, but it it's ringed,...

    the Mamba motor is plenty powerful for the Mini Inferno. It's the same motor that Jeremy Kortz used to win the Potbelly's mini offroad race by like five laps over second place. Anyone that says it's...
