RE: How reliable is the pullstart on a LRP .28?

What kind of fuel are you running? Fuel with more oil will make OWBs slip more. Traxxas fuel is one to stay away from.

I just got a Savage X SS, but in all my past RC cars O'donnel has worked...

RE: Savage 4.6 RTR help - engine issues in break in

Yeah, that's what I meant. I've done it before with other stuff, such as the 1/64 rat-shack "zipzaps" when they came out... when I was about 15. I used a wall power supply for a portable CD player...

Alright thanks for the help guys, The batteries are 1800mah Nicads, I believe Peak Performance or something like that, they're blue.

RE: hyper 7 screws

metric. You should need a 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0mm hex wrenches for nearly everything.

RE: Receiver Battery - How long to Run?

I run my 5 cell 1200mah pack for the entire race day with some high torque servos and never have a problem. I'll usually run about 12-15 tanks throughout the day with a 200oz-in airtronics 358 servo...

Who's bought an RC for their significant other?

So yesterday after I got done breaking in my GO 5 port on my Hyper 8, I went with my g/f to screw around at a local park with it. I of course let her have a go at it and she thought it was really...

RE: Hyper 7 Set up for slipery surface ??

You'll want to thicken up your middle and rear diff fluids, probably moreso the middle than rear.

As a starting point I'd try 7000/10000/4000 or so.

Is it dusty as in dust on a concrete...

RE: Official Hyper 8 Thread

With my new job I can finally afford to get my H8 up and running again. Never let your racing friends experiment with your engine;)

So a 5p GO engine is on the way:D

RE: Hyper 8 Suspension Mods?????

Agreed.

When it comes to suspension just experiement with springs, oils, and every suspension adjustment. No part will win you races... you'll have to do that yourself.

RE: Glow plug for GO 21 7 PORT??????????????

Gotta use an OS #8 plug. Compare the plug length of the stock GO plug to others, it's the same size as the OS plugs.

RE: Wheres the long term fun in bashing?

Last year I got a Hyper 8 and got into the race-only kind of mentality because I didn't want to break stuff on my buggy and frankly racing at a club level is much more fun that bashing by yourself.

RE: WANKEL ENGINE ON 1/8 RACER!!!!

RE: clutch bell bearings

In regards to CB play, I aim for as little as possible while still being able to move it just a LITTLE bit.

RE: ofna 9.5 violator

I'd say get a Hyper 7 PBS. Very strong, has a powerful .21 8-port engine, and potential for at least club racing.

Don't get too hung up on HP ratings of anything, especially RTR kits. Just get...
