    I know Robbe makes helicopters. Maybe it's a fuel for helicopters? I don't know. But never use helicopter fuel on surface driven vehicles cuz that's one way to kill an engine fast.

    Usually the engine head screws are very tight. If the JB weld or locktite doesn't work, then try using a drill bit. Find a drill bit that's slightly larger than the screw head. Then drill it right...

    These are probably even worse than the stock ones. I bought a few in bulk and 5 of them started glitching after 10 mins of use. They don't center properly and their holding strength really sucks.

    I don't think that's wear. Many CVD's I've seen on trucks have that notch in it and it's so that the shaft doesn't come off on power.

    Agreed... Don't bother wasteing your time scrubbing them cuz it's just wasted effort. Running on wet grass or slightly damp grass cleans off the mud in a matter of runs.

    The way I do jumps is let off the throttle right when the truck is on the ramp. Then you won't have excessive tirespin and it's easy to correct nose heading by using throttle or brakes.

    Yea, the 3.3 is a little sensitive to screw tuning. A little touch on the needles could make a huge change. And yea, sometimes the idle seems to be unstable, but blip the throttle when you're coming...

    Yes, the difference is noticable. I have a 3.3 Revo and I dragged against a 2.5 today and the 3.3 just pulls a lot harder than the 2.5... So putting a 3.3 in your 2.5 Revo will surely have a big...

    I use a drill bit and drill a few holes in the tire; in the actual tread. So when I run my maxx out, the centrifugal force will sling all the water out. It's a great quick way to get the water out.

    No, the single chambered pipe doesn't help torque at all. It's just a speed pipe. Dual chambers will help out with torque all round the rpm range.

    It's the other way around. Single chamber pipes allows the engine to rev up higher so you get more RPM out of the engine. That's why many touring car racers use single chambered pipes instead of...
