wow nice u got a deal! lol well i went to go spray some WD-40 around so nothing would rust and once I was dont i looked at the wing and it had a huge crack down the right side and was barely hanging on. I got my soutering gun out i duuno how to spell it so bare with me. and on the back i went down it with the gun and melted the plastic back together seems pretty sturdy now. Any one have their himoto high downforce wing crack? ask if you want pics.

Mine used to do wheelies when i was running my OS30 and the 2 speed but it needed a surface with a lot of traction and you have to take off right but even then it was really hard. Truggy's are pretty much designed not to wheelie so you have to set it up and change a few things to do it consistently

It got run over by a car this was my second ST-1 and my fastest before i started from scratch with an ST-1 PRO. This is the one that coud do wheelies it was a real missile, especially with those tyres on the road. I now have them on half offset rims on my PRO kit running a NOSRAM 28 which can make them dinner plate to almost a foot in diameter lol its funny to watch.

Before and after getting run over and when i rebuilt it afterwards (yes it still worked after being run over by a real car)

Ouch [:@] That's gotta hurt! Reminds me of a time when one of my R/C cars (1/10 scale onroad) lost the radio connection and smashed into a curb! It was before I knew about radio failsafes, return springs etc. The car went into the curb at around 40mph and literally disinagrated [X(] The car was in such bad shape all I could keep was the engine and a few suspension parts and buy another roller. Boy...did that SUCK. Oh well, you live and you learn I just wish I had some pictures so I could show everyone []

Definitely lean. Were you doing any speed runs? was there a significant amount of smoke or no? maybe the high speed needle needs to be richened up before. I told you on 360 live to turn the high speed needle in, but I forgot to ask you what temperature is it outside? Maybe richen the high speed needle and lean the low speed see if less fuel comes out the exhaust pipe.

i woud also think you are too lean, i would richen up both needles about 1/4 turn and just adjust the high speed needle a bit if sluggish. you will toast that motor if you arent carefull before its broken in .

Ohhh. I guess now you will make sure your exhaust hanger is positioned far from the tank.
