Replacing the starter shaft with the OWB is recommended....
One of the worst features of the original reversing transmission. FOC will eliminate the bucking.
Normal. If it runs fine, leave it alone. Nitro engines will require tuning on a daily (or even hourly) basis.
Tamiya #42260, pricey, but a nice reamer.
Sounds like LSN might need to be leaned out. Try it 1/16 turn at a time.
You may have a broken clutch spring. Pull the engine and inspect the clutch assembly.
Have you tried raising the idle stop screw or leaning out the LSN yet? Remove air filter and visually make sure operation of the brakes does not close the carburetor further. It is possible the...
The pull start screws require minimal torque or else the system will bind. Blue loctite is reccomended.
Depends on ambient temperature, humidity, altitude, air filter / exhaust setup, nitro %....
HSN needs to be richened.
You could try:
-Forward only conversion
-Lighter wheels/tires (assuming stock chevrons)
The easy route would be a 3.3. Even with all those upgrades above,...
Idle may be set too low, LSN may be too rich, or your linkage/trim may be incorrectly set, allowing the carburetor to close further when applying the brakes vs. at its neutral postion.
Make sure the linkage is set correctly. At neutral throttle the carburetor opening should be at it's minimum opening. Sometimes with an incorrectly set trim and/or linkage the carburetor opening can...
Proper gear mesh, slipper adjustment, and going for smooth landings will go a long way in keeping the spur intact. If the spur doesn't go, something else more expensive and time consuming to replace...
One of my favorite small block engines. Easy to tune, solid power, good fuel economy, and you can get quite some fuel through them before needing a rebuild.
The Pro .15 used to run around 300.
It's important to remember ambient temperature plays a big role in engine temperature, and that you generally shouldn't tune for temperature.
94 BMW 540i
Let's just say 282 ponies out of a 4.0L 32V V8 is plenty for a 15 year old.
I've yet to meet a young boy who sees nitro R/C vehicles in action and doesn't immediately want one.
Way too tight. Back it off.
30-33% nitro is the bees knees. Great power jump from 20% and the engine can be run cooler and richer, while still providing more power over an engine on 20% that is running leaner. I used 20 in the...
T-Maxx Pro .15, T-Maxx 2.5, Revo 2.5, Revo 3.3, 4-Tec 2.5, Jato 2.5, E-Revo, Slash 4x4
You won't have an issue. Follow proper break-in techniques.
I wouldn't buy used unless you have experience in surface vehicles. It's the safer play if you don't know what you're doing. Hard to beat a factory fresh Traxxas ride.
Great fuel. Always re-tune for new blends.
Make sure it's not running too lean. Spin the clutch bell to see if anything is seized or worn.
These engines will lean out as they reach operating temperature. They also need constant tuning due...
