Default More power

I found a great deal on four Monster GT .28 engines and decided to put one of them in my Volcano to replace my existing Hyper .21

Torque is emmensive with a 12T cluchbell and 52T spur. Wheelie bar anyone? Videos will be up as soon as I get my bulkhead fixed

That 75cc tank just doesn't do that engine justice!

Haha, no it doesn't, but I still get lots of fun out of it. The driveline is not toast yet (knocks on wood)

I'm shocked that you didn't add aluminum parts to give it a little weight.  I imagine that its a little hard to put all the power down to the ground without having to correct it?

Well, just changing the spring rates on the coil-overs makes it easier to put the power to the ground
