maybe i should have waited before getting the mt218ss and gotten the firestorm instead. Although I got the mt2 for less than the firestorm costs...should I trade my MT2 for a firestorm?

Hey 46u
You're probably right about the tz .18 being too much for the drive train. I'll stay with the cvr .15.
I don't remember the guys from macon names but they use to race out of an extemely large trailer. Tomorrow
will be our first race of the season, I'll ask the guys what were the macon guys names. Where do you race?

So far the only place I have race has been at a local track they closed about 3 or 4 months ago here in Macon. I plain on trying to run the Georgia Championship series and run at Loganville, Rodslinger, Sugar bowel and Savannah at least. Trying to get up a race buddy so I will have someone to pit for me and I will do the same for them. I will mainly be running my Hyper 8 and maybe my Savage. I pretty much retired the MT from racing and is why I put the TZ in it. I just about gave up the hobby till I started racing, as bashing is so boring to me. Hope to make it over your way one day.

You would be better off saving up twice the money and buying a OS 18 CV-RX instead. Do you run off road or on? With the 2 speed you do away with ths slipper so off road it does not hold up as well.

i mostly drive on road. i understand that it is not good to jump with the 2 speed because you no longer have a slipper clutch. i am planning on ordering the cv-rx at the same time, which leads me to my next question, will the 2 speed work with the os motor? do you think i should just get the motor now and if thats not enough speed go ahead and get the 2 speed? how much bottom and top end will the cv rx give my mt2 over the stock t 15. can i use the stock exhaust? wow.....thats a lot of questions...thanks 46u

The Spektrum is a very good radio been using one for about 9 months. As far as the 2 speed have never run one. I only run off road. As far as the OS 18 CV-RX over the T 15 is like the difference from night to day. I have not run any of my nitro in over a month. [:@]

Hey guys, I was running my MT today, things were going fine. As I was running a final tank through the car before I called it a day the car started moving by its own accord. The transmitter was in neutral but the car was moving (not fast, but not really slow either). The breaks stopped the car okay so it's not as if I had to run after it.

I haven't had a chance to look at the car yet, but I'm pretty sure there's a clutch problem. Maybe one of the springs has broken? If this is the case I'm not looking forward to fixing it as I've heard it's a tricky job to do.

Any thoughts on this? At first I thought it might have been an electrical problem as I was running the car through shallow puddles but the more I think of it, the more I think it is the clutch.

sounds like your idle needle (little black screw) is set to high. turn it clockwise to bring the rpm's down. this should sort your problem. have a look down the air intake there should be a 2mm gap. if there is more turn your trim down and set the idle needle so the rmp's are lower. i replied to your p.m just wondering if you recieved it. my internet has been playing up lately

Thanks djheptic. Snap! My internet has been playing up too. Today is the first day in about a week it has been running smoothly. I've not had a PM notification but I'll check my inbox momentarily.
