    I have a couple of those pipes. Might be a plan. The one SX needs a bearing, and the top of the cylinder has a 1/16th" plating flake on it. Kind of afraid to splurge on the bearings. I think...

    I like my Wonder. Got a Fox .15 BB in it. The FP .15 it came with was way too tail heavy. I guess that is why I got such a deal on it. I had to extend the nose 3/4" and add two oz. The Fox was...

    Maybe the muffler is holding them back. It could be piped timing as well if the exh timing seems anywhere near 170 degrees. Then it would need a pipe. Otherwise, yes it does seem somewhat average...

    The shipping is $29 to here. I can get one for $10 shipping at Hobbypartz. It is only a bit more than $30 (each) when they decide to stock them. They are at least new. Odd that they have left hand...

    You can make an adaptor or use a pipe too. Anything is better than the forward protruding stock ST muffler. It always seems to break off the rear lug in a crash.

    A 7-4" is kind of the standard for .09 and .10 engines. Normally the older steel liner motors like a somewhat bigger load than ABC stuff. I think the fiberglass F2D combat props may be the ticket...

    I have run wire through a hole, much like a cotter pin, and found that it tears the silicon. Twist ties and a barb of some sort seem to work well for me. If you have a muffler that comes apart, then...

    According to that diagram, it has sub piston induction. I didn't know that would work well with a muffler or pipe. Usually the crank timeing is 40 60 for a piped motor. The closing tiime at 57 is...
