Nice presents been! Yea I got her a new Canon P & S camera, as she already has a Nikon DSLR.

I haven't messed around w/ the BCE chassis yet tho, so I'll be interested in your findings. Lemme know which dogbones are required.

I can't believe the pinch this JPX .28 has. I haven't tried running it yet, but definately can't turn it over by hand. People weren't kidding about the pinch, haha. Been, what weight shock oil are you running? I'm thinking of drilling mine out a bit, and using 60wt. or so. Right now running 50wt all around with 15mm of preload for bashing, but rear is still too soft.

I use stock springs with jam-min harden big bore shocks with mugen 400wt in the rear and 350 in the front and when i land a jump there is little bounce it gives. what will drilling out the shocks do? have you rebuilt your diffs at all?

Drilling it out will allow more oil to pass through the 2 holes in each shock and thus allow you to run thicker oil, giving you more of a big bore feel to it. It's a common mod guys do on the ST-1 front shocks, and some do the rear as well. I think I'll try it out and report back.

Haven't rebuilt the diff yet as I need to pick up the parts on thurs night from LHS when they're open late.

TTYL!

You encountering issues with wear? I would just leave them as long as they are not wearing out. If they are you basically insert shims in order for the gears to mesh tight enough to a point where there is no noticeable friction. Be sure to great up the gears well with white lithium grease.

FYI Been, I read on a forum that a guy said you'll need part TTRPD2367 in order to complete the BCE chassis conversion. That's all he said however. [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/products_id/4937]http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/products_id/4937[/link]

How will the 90* tiger drives work? I have an LRP Z28 Spec3 and at 90*, you can't get the wand in there because of the exhaust and/ or pipe. From the looks of it, you need something that comes off the corner (paralled to the pull start cord). Is there anything like that for the LRP?

Just get a spinstart backplate like the mach 427. That works perfectly fine from the back.

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and was sent here by a hobby shop. I have a Thunder Tiger ST-1 with the pull start and am looking for a new system. I contacted Thunder Tiger on the roto start system, but it has been discontinued. I contacted Sullivan on the tiger drive, but they do not think they have one for this application. I'm looking for someone who has completed the coversion who can tell me exactly which parts I need. It would be great if someone could help me out, Thanks!!

This is the Thunder Tiger backplate that I have been using with the stock motor with my HPI rotostarter:

[link=http://www.thundertiger4u.com/roto-start-backplate-p-8632.html]Roto start backplate TTRPN0273[/link]

If I remember correctly, it bolted on with 3 screws instead of 4 but I have had no problems.

you can use the Sullivan S703 tigerdrive backplate, you will need to either shim the engine with washers or shave the "ears" down on the sides but other than that it works, the output on the back of the engine is 6MM so the closest relative to the S703 90* version can also work (inline works but sometimes its hard to feed the "wand" in through all the stuff)

Look what came in the mail today...Clockworked Picco P3 .28 with turbo head button and Jammin' cooling head to match the Thunder Tiger red. Thanks Supertib!

I'm a little torn because I just got a SavageXL and I might use it for that instead...or I just might have to order another one!

BTW here are the pics of my BCE chassis build and Eganwp all you need is one drive shaft for the conversion and its only the rear CVD. but everything went together pretty smooth. i wanted to take it completely apart but didn't have the time for that but I did what I could.

I recently got an LRP z.28 Spec3 pullstart for my ST-1 and it ripppps!!! Sooooo much more power/speed that the stock TTR engine. I also bumped up to a 14T CB and a Dynamite 086 pipe. Very pleased with the performance. I was getting bored with the power of the stock engine and the LRP gets me excited again. Easy to break in and holds a tune really well.
