    The gear ratio of the LST diffs is 4.3:1, and the stock Revo diffs have a ratio of 2.846:1. The difference is large. When you crunch the numbers, regardless of what CB/Spur you run, your truck is...

    Remove the entire slipper assembly and inspect it. Look specifically, and closely, at the backing plate that the pads are attached to. Is it distorted, or bent? If it is, your spur gear is not...

    I am fully aware of what all of your gearing choices are. I did calculate more ratios, I just didn't post them. 19/34, with the wide ratio gear set gives you a 16.24 final drive ratio, which is...

    This is the one aspect that nobody ever discusses when they do these conversions, and the one aspect that should be of the most concern. Your front and rear diff ratio is high, real high. I looked...

    You don't want to tighten it down, then back it off. That will just lead to it coming loose again, and you can distort or break the backing plate in the process. You also crush the Bellville washers...

    Yes, I use that flywheel, a Savage clutch , and Savage clutch bell. If you read thru some of the fine print on their site, they tell you what crankshaft nut to use also. I think the newer clutches...

    I have been using a Qoncepts flywheel for years. You can use a Savage CB, and shoes are easy to find because you can use Savage, OFNA, or Kyosho shoes. I like the Savage shoes best. The flywheel is...

    I have owned a revo since 2004, and it/they have always been a racer. Everyone that I know that started with the lst or LST2, and sold it to buy a revo, regretted it. The lst was always a better...

    The point is, the LST2 is comparable to the Revo. Especially if you are looking to race.

    I find it funny that there are all these threads about wanting to put a bb in the revo chassis, and you...

    OS #8 and Mcoy 59 are two dramatically different plugs. The OS plug is a short plug, to be used in engines that require a short plug. Using a short plug will alter the timing, and you do not want to...

    Did you try adjusting the 3rd needle on the 11K, before swapping carbs? It would have probably solved your "switch" issue. I have owned a couple OS small engines. After achieving a good tune with the...

    I may be biased, but I can see all throughout the video how the single speed helps with consistency. Although you may be maxing out RPM's a little early on the long backfield straight, I...

    Use the baking method, along with Double G's suggestion. The reason you put it in the oven is that the aluminum crankcase expands before the steel bearing race does.
