whats the rules or object of the contest. I didnt see no guide lines.
Here .. it's just a monthly photo contest, something so we have a good pic for the front page - members decide what that is

edit...

we're still pretty small, but eventually we'll have contests with prizes.. if things keep going well (like they have been)

Howdy fellow MGTers

Since most of you are a member already.. I thought I'd post that there's 5 days left to enter your pics (voting starts the 26th) http://www.groundpoundersrc.com/inde...pic,440.0.html ...there's no real prize (MGT forum contests are a hard act to follow! lol), but, the top 3 pics will be on the front page (here) for the following month.. just thought I'd let ya' know [sm=thumbup.gif]


i will clean my MGT and try to put the pictures at that site..........no problem DUCKEDUP

btw how many pic can i load?

cyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The MGT motor is great, if u dont have a temp guage, it will be hard to tell how hot it is, they run hot, no way around that, all nitro motors do, its how they make there power, placing your hand on the cooling head isnt a good way, cause even if its rich it will still be hot to touch. Mine runs around 220 and is now at 10gallons. So throughout the life of the motor 10 gallons so far, its goin great, i run it around the 270 mark, well try to.

Now with this novarrosi carburetter, it is runnin a bit cooler, with increased top end, low end and alot smoother powerband, im very happy with it

Does anyone know the part # for the piece on the bottom of the shock that connects it to the a-arm? I cant find it on tower

The T MAXX shock ends work just fine , and like duckedup said you get 8 too a pack and you dont have to buy the preload spacers .

Parma makes it, here's one place that has it - http://www.rcplanet.com/Parma_1_8_Gr..._p/par1225.htm - you might be able to find a better deal if you shop around, not sure though. There is also a 1/10 version, so make sure you get the right one..

Does varying idling rpms sound like an air leak? It wasnt my servos twiching, i shut off th reciever and listened. When idling, the rpms are going up, and down, like im using the throttle, but i havent even touched it. checked the fuel line seems to be sealed (no bubbles) Ijust want to get these engine problems resolved![&:][:@] O well, cant wait to pick up my lrp spec 3 on saturday [8D]

Either an air leak or slightly lean LSN. Richen it up 1/8 - 1/4 and if it still continues to do it it's most likely an air leak...

Enjoy that Spec 3 once you get your hands on it [>:] it's on my "to buy" list hehe

What are good replacement shocks for the mgt? I have had mine for only a few days. It is about 4 years old though. I bought it from my friend. Anyways the shock caps keep coming off. They are the originals so I would like to replace the shocks completely. I know to stay away from Integy. But I would like something better than plastic.

FT alloy caps or power strokes if you can find them.

Are those just caps? I would like to replace the whole shock. They are 4 years old and have been through some pretty good abuse.

then get some new shocks and the alloy caps. it will still be cheaper than power strokes, and a very durable set up. But if the shafts are straight on your current shocks, then just put some new oil in them with the FT caps and you will be all set.

you shouldnt be driving it that hard yet. but there is definitely a audible change when it shifts though

there are spots in this video where you can clearly hear it shift

you can definitely hear it shift, but NOT during break in. During break in, you are running it RICH and slow, so you won't get enough hanging RPM's to get it to shift. Be patient, it'll be screaming soon enough.......
