    Best TRX 3.3 fuel

    What's the best fuel to use in the 3.3 engine? I saw the top fuel, but only comes in (4) gallon cans. Looking to get something in one gallon size but don't want 4 of them.

    Your LHS should have them in gallon sizes. I use Byrons, others use that or O'Donnell, Blue Thunder and a bunch of others.

    I'm just curious, could one of these engines run on regular gas or diesel? I'm not gonna try it, but just wondering

    Um, you can convert it to a Davis diesel, but it costs a ton, and the gas is about $40 a gallon.

    Thats cheaper than a gallon of 30% O'Donnell, but not worth it. I havent seen to many lhs that carry the fuel.

    Wow, where are you getting it from? I just got a gallon of O'Donnell's 33% race blend for $28 @ my not so local LHS.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    Do you guys know where I can just get the piston and not the sleeve and con rod? My piston skirt went into multiple pieces but I don't need a rod or sleeve yet

    The piston and sleeve come in a set and at this point can only be purchased together. If your skirt let loose, there is the possibility that the sleeve is scored from the debris.

    No, I swear, the sleeve is perfect. I'll try to just run it with the broken skirt until it breaks then get a new sleeve and piston, unless someone has a piston laying around. Hint hint!
