RE: ofna jammin x1 cr pro 1/8 buggy kit?s

I highly suggest not running a .28 if you plan to race. Fuel consumption will be a huge problem in long mains or even 10min heats. The game in racing isn't at all about power. You need to drive the...

RE: ofna jammin x1 cr pro 1/8 buggy kit?s

I wont run an STS man Im sorry. STS are 130.00 bux new and work about 50.00 to 60.00 used. This is why I say keep it for a practice or backup mill

RE: GO 3PORT TURBO .21

If racing the B6 might be a better option. It's less thirsty then the b5 and with less aggresive port timing it will likely be easier to drive, but your looking at another 100.00 from the engine your...

RE: Losi 454 Engine: What's the Verdict?

Plain and simple too rich will also give you more heat. I been doing this a very long time and have seen it many times. You talk like this is a Ringed aircooled engine...IT ISNOT. Totally different...

RE: engine

RE: Losi 454 Engine: What's the Verdict?

Just for the record, the richer an engine runs does not by ANYMEANSmean cooler running. Too rich can cause excessive heat aswell. One reason fuels with less oil content will run cooler. IE the...

RE: Losi 454 Engine: What's the Verdict?

RE: Losi 454 Engine: What's the Verdict?

Patience is the name of the game!! 8-10 tanks is very little time and breakin is still alot of fun. Heat cycle is by far the best method to break in an ABC/ABN engine

RE: Losi Spin Start

He will want to use a drill and use either the AE or losi Bit for the losi engine. Associated and Losi use the same HEX, but there will be no issue fitting it in the savage.
