    I've been thru one o-ring that just went limp on me. I was only able to buy a complete "fuel tank rebuild kit" from my LHS, which I think really sucks, since all I needed was an o-ring.

    I am...

    Interesting. Could you describe what you did with the throttle linkage? I did not adjust mine, and I have a feeling that maybe I need to be adjusting something (something just doesnt "feel right")

    What do you mean by flood procedure? If you mean removing the glowplug, filling the carb and cylinder with the fluid, then cranking the starting motor to remove as much as you can, then that is...

    I am using Hobbico after-run oil for after-run. The stuff seems pretty thick (compared to wd40), doesnt seem like it would cause grease to go bye-bye.

    At one time, I put in some stuff called...

    Half gallon thru mine. Nothing broken yet. Easy wheelies though. The biggest problem I have is since it wheelies so easily, and since the motors head extends way farther then the 2.5r's head, it is...

    Going single-servo is real nice. No more fighting servos. And you save a little weight by losing one of them (but not a whole ton). I wouldn't call that a free mod, because just one of the Traxxas...

    I'll vouch for that! The one time I bent mine, crashing into a fencepost, I used a vise so I could bend it back into shape without marring the metal. You can't even tell it got bent! Steel bars rule...

    I had to tighten my slipper quite a bit to get wheelies. I think it comes pretty loose from the factory. Or maybe just mine was. Try it out.

    It is loud. Sounds like a chainsaw at idle. A big bad mean chainsaw that wants to rip apart every other car on the track, roll over them and leave them in its wake of nitro fumes. I like it that way!
