    I found the 3.3 to be a good performing engine, wasn't to bad to tune but it just didn't last that long, I got the clutch/flywheel today so will get it all back together & see how it goes. There's been a few people who have used a side exhaust so hopefully someone can help with some info. What exhaust do you have atm, the THS rear exhaust is meant to be pretty good.

    The original resonator pipe is supposedly meant to be alright but pipes like the THS make a big difference over the standard pipe when used instead from what I have read, thats why I was getting one, the THS was one of the better pipes around & their not that expensive either which is good.

    Also, you could try drilling the stinger out a little bit just to enlarge the exit hole, only a very small amount though. From what I have read, it is a good way to gain a little extra power. It should only be done a very small amount though or it could cause a loss of pressure & power. I read about it in a thread somewhere, not sure if it was here or another forum though.

    Some guys wrap the threads with Teflon to take out the play. There are low end hub adapters and low budget mods to fix it as well. Check around the E-Maxx forums for mods

    For the lose hubs I put some electrical tape around mine, its a bit thicker the teflon tape & lasts a while to, 2 layers was all that was needed & I had to twist the hubs on to get them in position. After 4 or 5 tanks there is still no movement in them.
    I did put a couple of layers of teflon around the little plastic ball cup screw in things that go into the axle carriers & hold the pivot balls though, it should stop them from working their way lose a little hopefully.
    Looks like you got your revo going well again, I just got my O.S installed & about to go start the run in process today.

    do you have problems with spent oil pooling up in the elbow of the exhaust where it turns up? I have thought of this idea before of running like a stack type pipe. Just didnt know if pooling would be a issue.
