    Just a heads up... Skate parks are bad mmmkay!!!! EVERY TIME i take my Revo to the skate park or bash on asphalt, concrete or anywhere near curbs i break something. At least it was cheap part. But breaking or stripping a spur always makes me think bent chassis, just be cautious and watch it for a little bit after you fix it. It may have bent chassis.

    yeah i used a rattle can plastic paint as a backer and it has pealed off the lexan paint where the white is. The orange and black seem to be ok, its weird.

    looked at them all and petted them all a little, reassuring them that when the weather warms we will ride again, whispering "soon my babies,soon"...

    Bored my stinger to 15/32 & retuned. Took out reverse and installed foward only tranny gears. Adjusted knuckles jumped repeated. Just trying to burn through that first gallon before I put a riser on the head and switch to 30% =-O.

    Heres my new Revo kit I recived a few days ago. It's Awesome. Its almost 1.5 inches longer then stock. I can run the revo body or the funny car body. I can run so many different tire combos on this deal and it looks great. The biggest thing I have seen so far is this thing handles nite and day from stock. It's hooked up in the dirt.

    After almost 2 months of sitting i finally fixed my Revo and ran it for about a 1/2 tank in my side yard. Not sure if everyone is this lucky or just me being diligent in storing my engine properly, but it basically fired right up What a huge difference in speed and handling after running my STRC Slash 2wd on a 4000kv motor and a 70c 5000mah lipo at the track.

    Oh and the smell. I forgot how much i love the smell of nitro

    Bringing this back up to the top...

    Had a little extra money to spend so I bought a bit of replacement parts for my Revo and Alias. And one goodie: A THS pipe that I got yesterday. I did not change the needle settings from the last time I ran it a few days ago (which was around 50) to last night (65) but there was a very noticeable increase in power. Right off the bat it felt like a big block was in the truck and temps were in check; I richened it up just a a little bit just to be sure. The only problem I have is the throttle arm on the Losi carb barrel loosens so if it slips off it will only idle. Waiting for those parts to arrive.
    My 3.3 is a RayARacing repinched engine using a piston/rod from one engine and a sleeve from another; slightly modified by yours truly, has a 3.4 Losi carb and now the THS. IMHO, this engine seems to run much healthier, more efficient and satisfies my desire--at this time--for speed and power (I always want more power like the next guy but the money tree gets picked by other family members). No pics as I had to go to my daughter's dance recital last night. I should have bought this years ago.

    Glad to see this up to the top. I just painted the grey platinum body and mounted some talons on proline f11 wheels to my big block revo. Here is a pic of all my revos. The raptor is my son's I am building for him. No engine or electronics yet. The 2.5 revo is just a roller right now but it's a current project of mine.

    Acetone is good. I don't know if paint will go on it good after that though... Wipe it down good after that.

    Today I made a bracket. The bracket is made from 7075 aluminum and fits my MaxAmps 2600mah battery in addition to mounting the fuel tank. The straps are re-purposed cable ties.
