Is anybody using a starter box on their DBX/DST? I am looking for a decent start box that will work with the right hand engine arrangement and a 12V gel cell battery.

Thanks much in advance,
Spiro

I'm thinking of getting a new air filter. What do you guys recommend?

I am running the HPI MT2 air filter #87207:
http://www.hpiracing.com/products/en/87207/

It was one of the least expensive dual element filters I could find. It fits, but I had to stretch the rubber boot over the carb pretty tight.

I am wanting to try one of the AE SC8 filters. Also inexpensive and I think it should fit the carb perfect. If anybody knows better, let me know.

So the HPI MT2 fits under the shell of the DST?

It fit fine underneath my DBX body, which I assume is even smaller and more cramped than a DST body. The kit came with two elbows, a 90 and a 45. I went with the 45 and it ended up a very clean installation.

I FINALLY had some time to spend on the engine. The front bearing was leaking like mad and it was very difficult to tune. I tore down the engine, swapped in a new bearing, and now things are running great. I had a fantastic time just out front of the house and even a bit on the tiny track out back! The smile is back. Now I have to get out to the local track.

Cheers,
Spiro

Yeah, I was SHOCKED how much of a difference it made. I had been reading some random engine tuning tips trying to figure out why I was having such strange issues with this particular engine. One of these guides mentioned how the engine really has to be sealed up tight and the front bearing is a possible point of leaking, which would cause all sorts of tuning issues. Well I knew the front bearing leaked like mad, so I figured why not? Now it seems to tune more or less normally.

I still have more bottom end bog off the line than I am used to with other engines. Not sure what the deal is there. The mid range needle seems to have very little effect, where usually I am used to a strong and predictable feedback from the midrange needle. I suspect the clutch is just engaging too early and the engine is operating at too low of an RPM to make much power. I tried shortening the clutch spring a bit, but the problem is still there. I will probably make a larger change with the clutch spring and see what happens. All suggestions welcome!

Wow! I ordered a shock shaft from Amain and got it a couple days later. Where did you order from?

Yeah, I would say It is marketed as 1/10th scale, but is a bit large compared to the other 1/10th scale buggies out there.

I drive mine mostly at the local off road track, where it seems to do fine. I don't really have a good basis for comparison of "how stable" it is as I have mostly only driven 2wd trucks and buggies. It seems infinitely better than those. I would have to say a proper 1/8th scale buggy would be superior though. If I had interest in racing or spending more $$$ thats the route I would go. For cheep fun, I am pretty happy with the DBX.

For what it's worth,

This car is soooooooo much fun on grass. I took it to my park yesterday and got it tuned just right and started off on the synthetic grass cricket pitch where it launched great. Me mate and I drag raced along it and at the end there was a sudden crest and i happened to hit it quite fast and flip several times. Then I went into some long-ish grass where it was awesome seeing it bounce around and then i tried full brakes+turn right and I flipped. As long as you dont push it too hard it should be great.

sup ppl im completely new to this, just got myself a dst for my first car after abit of tinkering with the top end and and low end its got some power behind it, maybe a little too much for a truck so small. i have a query though from new new engine (which is the standard gxr 18 that cums with it) is leaking slitely at the front end, my friend sed this is normal ther messy buggers but i would imagine any seepage from the engine would be less than normal. is it, if not wot maybe the main cause of this. thanx

a little is fine means bearings gettin oil, but if it gets bad you will loose your tune ....... too much air.
Yes WOT does create more pressure. And on new engine with tight sleeve ......... Remember there is also pressure in crankcase unlike 4 stroke

I had some tuning difficulties with the GXR18 engine unlike any I had ever had before with any other engine. Eventually I tracked it down to the front bearing seals leaking excessively. Well, I guess it was pretty obvious they were leaking, just not obvious to me how much trouble this would cause [>:] I swapped out the front bearing and now it tunes fine just like any other engine I have ever used. Oh, and no more spray of crap coming out just behind the flywheel

Sorry, I can't say as I have any other similar head engine to try to see if it fits for you. Out of curiosity, why do you want to do this?

My brother have a Revo and it changed the cooling head by a brand NOVARC cooling head, and performance of the car and increased also the operating temperature was lower. My DBX always get very high temperatures above 130 degrees Celsius and putting a head novarc i will keep the temperature more pleasant addition to a better performance. On this site of them all types of cooling heads they produce.
