    No problem. Glad to help. I know (12) pages is a lot to read thru.

    I ran the O.S. LC3, but it is a hot plug. Maybe not good for you in that heat, but here it is. The traxxas plugs you have or the Mc59 should work well aslo. They ran good in my old .18TM.

    Got the PM's, sorry so slow responding bro. Your order looks good. Since you are getting the THS pipe set, you don't need the RS4 header anymore. Also, unless you just want a new plug wrench, the one you have will fit the O.S. plugs. The LC4 should be better than the LC3 for you.

    You may want to add a 19/20 tooth revo CB and 38/40 spurs. Stock gearing will be tough to keep planted.

    Hey Desert, you don't need the RS4 header since the THS pipe comes with which is bigger in size. the RS4's is little too small on 21tm. It needs more air flow.

    if you notice the above shopping cart it shows:
    409 - ( 80 discount code ) = 329
    then 329 + 67 for shipping = 396

    then a radieo for $250 from amain hobbies + set of 4 wheels & tiers = almsot
    300+ , then it's shipping $87 = around 390
    add this to the one from tower above : 396+390 = $ 786 minimum

    this is closing to the 1000 i have to re adjust things here before my family sent me to mental hospital

    Good luck Max just remember that the 21tm will give you
    an advantage of torque not a big top speed. it's #1 choice for sand
    runners.
    myself, doing some adjustment on my shopping cart & advise you
    to revise your cart also. after i filled it i notice that i'm going far beyond
    the logic.

    Desert, wise choice. You can cut the other items you don't need, but the gear change is gonna be a must have. If you can get gearing from your LHS, no problem.

    No traxxas parts available here in Saudi Arabia, unfortunately, there's 2 LHS
    in the capital city, both sells HPI & TT rc's..

    if you meant those gearing :
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXHFR5&P=ML
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXHFR6&P=ML

    and it's cb of 19 & 20 tooth same pitch
    i already got the cb. the only 38t spur stripped 2 months ago

    i'llb buy them along anyway. But it's not available here..
    another bad things i'm suffering from in addition to the high shipping charges

    if placing a RRII tires or similar going to be better than moab
    or Yokohama geolander to prevent wheelie ?

    saying this because i'm thinking of buying a set of yokohama tires
    which has a very good traction that will increase the possibility of
    letting the nose up ..

    You have a nice setup, keep the tires you have for the sand. Just change the gearing if you have to. I would even add a little weight to the nose first. LOL.

    First off thanks for a great build bro. OK have any of you thought of flipping the header and sending the tuned pipe out the back for rear exhaust?

    Thanks TRJ539. Great idea, but not much that hasn't been done on the Jato.



    I posted the original article some time ago. Page(8) post 294. The link to the article should work so you can blow it up.

    o.k .. here's my first problem:

    Don't know how to remove the flywheel from my dead engine to place on
    the new engine ?
    should unscrew this black nut ? it's so hard doing so, but if i should i'll apply
    some additional force to unscrew it..

    hold it tightly with some channel locks,make sure its tight enough so it doesn't slip,then use a 1/4 ratchet with the right deepwell socket and your in business.

    when i removed my clutch i used the plastic black screw on thing u use for the antenna. i broke it in the process it was on so hard. So i went for some more hardcore tools. forgot what they were but ull have the same problem with the flywheel i bet. itll be stuck on like u wouldnt believe. simple u can just hammer it off. dont even bother to pull it off cos that aint gonna happen. bu if it does ill be angry cos i was stuck with that one for a while.

    EXACTLT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED WITH ME NOW
    the plastic black screw thing just carcked as my brother hold the flywheel
    tight while i tried with all my force to unlock it

    i'll have to wait till tomorrow to see if the hobby shop man technician could do anything. or maybe i should get a better metal tools here..

    it's simply appears as " impossible " to unscrew that flywheel nut


    if i would knew that it's so hard to move that nut out, i would just look for the flywheel part number
    an added it to my shopping cart along with it's bad luck locking nut

    Yup! dont use the black plastic wrench! I dont think it was made to take off the flywheel nut.Get a set of some real tools.

    that's what i'm going to do..
    now another question : does it "hurt or cause a later problem" if the flywheel
    tooth get some how damaged as i was holding it tight with a metal grapping tool ?
