i was recently on rczone when traxxas was down and left a msg for a fiend of mine about turboing(porting) his engine. a few days later i returned to the site to see that the moderator had pulled my message and the site posting that i had left and siad that this was the type of thing that he does ot like to see.
i was p'd off but i left it alone the only reason i was there was to help a friend of mine and any one else who wanted to read and invest some time in porting.
i didn't tell the guy to drill a hole in his engine i gave him correct advice of doing his research first and i gave him a site with specific directions.
m i nutz or ?????

putzld - I got a 404 on that link, thanks anyway. I think I can find it from what I salvaged of the link.
Racinraders - If you have nothing better to do than dedicate an entire post to me and my ability to post, you shouldn't be here. I was just making a point that my acct. was taken away; but, I was also asking for a link. Don't get off topic, if you want to start a flame war, PM me.

I guess I'd feel like starting my own board.
I'm all for freedom of speech, but you have to remember that board is paid for and maintained by a respected publication.
I felt that RCCA's representative was trying to protect their interests by not allowing something that he believed could harm them on their site.
How could that harm RCCA's interests? Well, several people could ruin their engines and say it was RCCA's fault because the information was obtained from their site.
Todays liberal courts would probably side with the idiot who couldn't follow directions properly, and RCCA would then have to pay.
Granted, it's far-fetched. But there have been much more ridiculous things happening in our court system in the past decade or so.
I'm sorry your message was deleted. I wish things were different.

i couldnt get that page to show up about boring or drilling out an engine, i wanted to try this so any info would be appreciated, as far a colin2 goes, just lay off, if hes finally done trash talking traxxas just let it be, he probably had a bad day when he posted that, it happens. but why would you be a moderator? just to delete someones account that was just telling it like it is? doesnt make sense to me but oh well.

here's that site roughneck
and even though it says for traxxas it is standard through out all two cycles i have performed porting on almost every engine that i have except for the ones that i race in stock competition. once u port it is considered a modification and must race in the according class.
the info is very detailed and precise the same advice that i give to all is make sure that u have total control of ur dremil or rotary tool. practice using the specific heads that are involved attempting to make the shapes that are required
the main thing is if u dont have the money to replace ur engine just in the event the project goes sour PLEASE THINK FIRST

I just want to add that I appreciate the info that you gave here. It looks like good info. Amazingly, it's no different than porting small block Chevy heads, except for the tools involved.
I definitely won't make immediate use of this info, but I have it bookmarked for future reference.

any time guyz any time
i try to only post useful info or solutions that i am quite sure of i would hate to mis inform anyone. and like you said the process is similar to small block porting. it never failed me and i have used the same method for all manufacturers not just traxxas.
i've done maybe 30 or so for my friends and the guys at the track. i was using an old car and driver mag until the oil from my fingers actually started bleeding the pages
