Well, after I found a crack in my carb, I went and got another one. So today when I started to reasemble my carb TWO threads in it striped out. It striped out both of the plugs by the hsn. I didn't even get it tight so I KNOW I didn't over tighten them. I'm SO MAD RIGHT KNOW!!! I JUST WASTED 14 BUCKS!!!! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!! I'm not saying traxxas carbs are not good, I'm just saying I've gotten some bad ones. Is there any other carbs (possible from other makes?) that will fit in a trx 3.3 (without cutting or moding them in anyway) that is NOT COMPSITE OR PLASTIC that I can get? I'm really tired of composite carbs, and I just want my next carb to last (And to be the last carb I buy) and to have good quality threads, performance, etc. Please help me get another carb besides the stock ones I DO NOT want to waste another carb! THANKS!
