    60$ for sleeve, rod and piston brand new!

    Hello, i just ordered a new sleeve and piston for 64$ from stormerhobbies. Then i found a website that sells the sleeve, piston and rod for 60$! Should i cancel my order with stormerhobbies and order the 3 package deal?

    Pull the g clip from one side of the piston where the pin slides through

    For a little bit more, you can just buy a brand new take off motor, just add your carb and backplate.
    New block, head, bearings, crank, and all.

    Do the engine replacement plan that traxxas offers and you'll have a new motor for about $70.
    And we thought toy grade RC's where cool...

    You could do the ERP. Or you could buy a new engine of eBay for less and have your old engine for spare parts or to rebuild to your liking.
