Default New ride...fresh start

Well i just sold my revo w/tekno conversion and all the electronics. I had many cars before that St-rr, St-1, 777, about 23 but i'll stop lol. I decided I want to move back to nitro because I miss the sound and want to learn how to tune agian but, this time I wanted to buy the "good" stuff, and not cheap out So I found the Tamiyia TRF801XT :nod: So guess what.....I ordered it. Bought it brand new for $199.00 It was either that or the D8t but couldn't pass the price of the Tamiyia. PLus my dad has a D8. WE might be racing depending on what happens with USAIR layoff. WE can still have fun if we dont though:tire: But anyways, here is my setup....some of the stuff I still have to order.
Tamiyia 801XT
Picco .21 Boost w/ pipe
Hitec 985mg
Jr 250z
lpr tires/wheels
*tilted conversion maybe

tilted engine mounts
id put the 985 for throttle and a associated ds1015 on steering very good for the price

tilted engine mounts suck !

I have them on my Hyper 9..causes lots of heat due to the reduced air flow over the head...as well the linkage is a PITA to keep functioning correctly..... I am actually selling my Hyper for this reason...sounds good on paper, but in reality its a PITA

I want to go with a more conventional setup...makes service much easier...As well the Hyper has a poor fuel tank that can cause all sorts of tuning issues...

honestly not much, besides lutz drove one to some good results, I think there is some sort of front arm conversion to make it stronger though
