cant say ozzie, as my mates store is in sydney LOL, but from what hes told me, its a TORQUE moster, and is just as fast if not faster than the stock 4.6, just with ALOT more torque. He rides wheelies right across the carpark LOL. Also because its not so high reving, its not to bad on fuel either, he said hes getting 10 to 15 mins a tank with it, which is about 4.6 standards.

Where abouts do ya live now?

Alright, Tower had some in stock last night so I order one. It will be here between the 12th and 16th. I will take some pics, if my wife will let me open the box before Christmas. They are now out of stock again. I hope it is the black one. Anybody know anything about ringed engines? I know you have to run alot of oil, and keep it pretty rich.

The video is intense. Looks like it has a lot of power. The S50 probably has the same power as the Mgt 8.0. It looks great.

It is the same truck as the MGT, just different body and tires. It will run on Heli fuel, it has to have alot of oil, decause it is a ringed motor. I will post pics when I get mine in a couple of weeks. I will have to wait for warmer weather to break it in Untill then I will play with my savage 4.6

Hey Kill Roy, thanks for the video link. That thing sounds really mean, more like it's got a .28-.30 on it. Anyway, post some pics of it as soon as you get it. Thanks

The 8.0 looks like fun, but I couldn't afford the fuel for it.

had ago of one acouple of days ago the guy couldnt get it to run.i got it running nice but just for brake in.it was really rich but even then it was wheel standing reckon it will haul ass when it gets going. i dont think it is a ringed motor either had heaps off compression had to loosen glow plug to start as the roto start would cut out straight away scotty i now live on the gold coast. and my name is scott i used to live in ulverstone
