RE: HPI Savage modified installed with Zenoah 23cc

Its giant scale now, with the 23cc gas IMO. What really makes a car giant scale, the motor, the lengh, the width?

RE: 25% Oil Mix...Misprint?

Its not an oily mix if you tune your engine right. My stock 26cc is almost 2 years old using Tanaka at 25-1 ratio. Use less oil and youll be buying a new motor.

RE: synthetic oil rinse leading to starting problems

Your loose back plate is probably what is causing your problems with starting, make sure the oring or gasket is there and seal it with some silicone, that should help.

RE: clutch

DONT get rubber sealed bearings for your clutch bell, they will fail miserably, too much heat. Get the metal sheilded, they will last longer.
