    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Possibly, but most of his alloy parts are aftermarket. Seems like a waste to go to a shop... IDK[]

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    can you explain this mixed gas? I use a pure methanol/oil mix, no nitro. it's fairly cheap if you looking for the less expensive alternative. These engines require methanol as the base fuel ingredient. Nitro will definitely increase performance, but isnt necessary. Ive never experimented with any other fuel, but I dont think gasoline will not work, or any other fuel that Im aware of, without some serious modifications

    Really you use methanol and no nitro. Were can you buy just pure methanol at. And what is your solution ratio?

    Snauty, here is a thread on the MGT forum that explains my experiment with fuel mixing. 0% nitro. Methanol is fairly easy to get. and the oil I get is top grade stuff from the dirt bike shop. It's all in the thread. If you don't mind a very slight drop in performance, and have decent tuning abilities(nitro makes tuning easier) this mix is awesome!

    here's my latest video running this methanol mix, 0% nitro
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CT-7ygFhT4

    btw, since the thread posted, I have dropped to a 88%methanol, 12% oil mix. and I like it alot. I will stick to this mix. I just tore my engine apart last night(2 gallons old) and everything was very clean and well coated with oil. I Tore it apart to port it, not because I had a prolbem, just so you know

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    hey guys is this servo Good? i know it has 198 oz of torque but im asking if the quality is good. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...0&I=LXNRT1&P=K
    i really like it, its in my price range and way over my expectations on torque. Tell me What you think.

    Thanks

    Its digital so its going to run your battery down.
    And thats a killer deal but I had some bad exp with hobbico.
    try the hitec mg servo, or one of those. Suppose to be a really good bang for the buck

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    Digital servos do typically eat a LOT more power than analog servos; IIRC it's because they exert full torque with every movement, part of the reason they have superior holding power. Ask the heli guys for more info--I know they're more common in that application.

    I ran the Airtronics 94358 (200oz/.10tt/digital) with a 1600mah pack and never had any issues.. I didn't usually run for more than 1-1.5 hours at a time though...

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    i have a 1600 MAH pack im not worried about the battery life cause i could just charge it. what im asking is hobbico a brand to be trusted? i never had experince with hobbico servos so that why im asking.

    RE: Monster GT anyone have one?

    I don't imagine you'd have to worry much about battery life on an average bashing day with just a digital steering servo and a 1600mah battery, but if you were running ALL digitals and/or still using the alkaline battery box, then you'd have some issues.

    Ferrari, FWIW, a couple guys in my club use Hobbico servos in their airplanes, and I haven't heard any complaints about those. I know that Futaba manufactures the Tower brand radio gear; since they're all part of the great planes family, I would not be surprised if Futaba makes the Hobbico brand radio components as well. I don't know one way or another, it's just a hunch.
