You've mentioned,"Eric tells how. He uses the same technic that I use except I like to use a steele HPI round .15 rod with a few mods." I would like to know how much and where I can get the HPI connecting rod. I would appreciate any other mod info greatly.
I get mine from my LHS guy.
If you use one. You must drill out the wrist (piston) pin end of the rod to fit the TRXs and instal a brass bushing. I press and get the bushings from work. To press a bushing you will need a tool called a bushing driver. I ruined 4 rods before I got it right. An engine can be ported like Eric. And you can use the stock rod. The reason that I like HPIs is that it is steele. Much harder to break when going for a high rpm engine.
excuse me while I pass some gas
