    The short answer: NO!

    The reason you need to test it on the truck is because if you run it without any resistance it will wind up to fast, it needs the resistance of the drivetrain to function...

    260 is fine, just keep it under 280, under 260 might be running to cold which is not any better than to hot.

    If its dying as you're giving it wot then HSN is to lean. If its dying after you let go of WOT then its rich with idle set to low. Factory settings are on the rich side but all to often they come...

    Looks like it could be a number of things but start with the most obvious which is tuning. Best thing to do when you're not sure is to start back at the beginning. Go back to factory settings (both...

    Can't advise you on what to get but you can put some duct tape inside the tire to reduce balooning.

    Dont quote me on this but I think they are both re-branded SH engines. I believe the LRP is a more recent model with different porting and such. Either way SH engines are very good considering how...

    Well if you're happy with the performance of the 4.1(.25cc) You'll love the power of a .28 or higher. IMO the F4.1 is NOT worth the rebuild, way better engines with less issues can be had for good...

    You're only running a .25 engine. Not like you have to much power on tap so the HD kit is not really needed at this point. IMO get a new regular diff and keep the HD ones for when you get a new...

    Generally speaking the higher the cu. the higher the torque, the lower the cu. the higher the RPM. So don't dismiss the .28 either. Any of them would make you happy so its really up to you what kind...

    An F4.1 will cost around 150 so a better engine will probably cost more. If you're looking for the best bang for your buck then LRP is the engine for you. Considering they can go upwards of 300 to...
