Big-ED --- is it dirt behind the flywheel - or is it dirt in the engine? I've not had to take off the flywheel to clean -- but you do have one of those high dollar big city engines so I wouldn't know :D - anyway -- for your sake, I hope that it is NOT dirt in the engine.

Joel is correct. You need to find the proper tree with the right curvature!

Yep that would suck if it was the engine, then I would have to get one of those RB WS7x3..;)

Don't worry, you just got some muck behind the flywheel. The only other way to get dirt inside is actually through the exhaust.
Getting a RB WS7x3 would hurt........................ us and your wallet.
Did you get a SP2 btw?

The kit I have now is An SP2
I'm going to take the SP1 parts from it and put them into the kit I bought from Kevin.

No Joel, not getting the mach now, changed to a picco .27. got 2 motors to break in now. Thinking about purchasing a break in table. Serpent makes one that has every thing you need including tank and prop guard.
Tried the fast breakin method, tried the idle in car, now im thinking i might try the table. got to be easy to monitor temps and such.

Just got thru taking the clutch/flywheel off, there was a ton of dirt behind the flywheel.
I've got to start running up front to keep this darn dirt out of there.:D

you guys are killing me. i can barely run a CHEAP buggy and now we're talking tanks,electric buggy's,monster trucks. my god i've got to find another job. :D
Whats cheap about the buggy you have now? If you would have bought a quality buggy in the first place you would have spend the same or less money with a whole lot less problems :eek:.

Ed your getting there quick. Even though Wayne's isn't a technical track you were deffinatly making some good lap times. Especially with how aggressive that buggy is... WAY more responcive steering and throttle than Scott's buggy and usually you want something with a lot of push that makes it easy to drive for an inexpirenced driver. Mine still drives like a Hyper 7... lots of push :). I still haven't figured out why exactly but I have a few things I'm gunna try to fix it. Ed if you ever feel like trading buggies with someone come to me first :D.

I'm really looking forward to running my XXX-NT and I'm thinking about setting up my T-Maxx to race. I'll need tires though and I don't know what kind of condition the motors in (of corse a mach .26). It was always a basher and the full throttle runs across my 5 ace backyard took its tole. Sure was sweet with this thing beating through the grass WFO at 40mph :D:D:D.

Just to let everybody know....racing at Blueridge on Oct 16th!! I think that date suits more people. Remember, race, swap meet and a jumping contest for the crazies!!!!

:D:D Tyler liked the OFNA that he drove in the A-Main. I think he still likes his OFNA( with the hyper 8 in it ), but he liked Allens OFNA more.
