    No, that's not normal. A small amount over several / many runs is normal. After a few minutes there shouldn't be a lot of buildup. A leaky front bearing though typically causes lean runs, not the...

    Does the top of the piston look smooth or is it pitted and rough? That would mean something is coming apart in the engine or you've ingested something, either from the fuel or the air filter.

    If...

    Try different batteries in the vehicle just to be safe. I've seen a battery be bad out of the package.

    Next try unplugging all but one of the servos. See if it operates normally, or if any of the...

    Can't give you any advice on a conversion to electric, but that is an original model 4910 with the Pro .15 engine. Probably 2000ish vintage.

    The motor bearings will absolutely need to be oiled. After each running session you need to get some sort of lube on the bearings to prevent them from rusting. I use WD40 to displace any water, then...

    The porting may or may not be related to the idle issues, but those two vertical lines in the piston surely is a good chunk of the problem. Looks like something scored the sides.

    Traxxas does not suggest running 40% nitro of any type in the TRX engines. Do so at your own risk.

    That being said, changing nitro %s after break-in typically results in problems because people...

    Pro .15 piston / sleeve have a retail price around $40.00.

    $10.00 is a deal, especially if it's running well now.

    Those are symptoms of a worn out piston and sleeve. I'd trade it in on the Engine Exchange Program. $70 and you can get a brand new Pro .15. It's a lot easier to tune an engine that has a two needle...

    The one I have is the same way and its never caused me any troubles. I wouldn't worry about it. Just a guess, but they probably did that to offset the plugs a little and help keep the wiring neater.

    You could use 300 or even go up to 500k if you really want to slow down the diff action. I believe the stock is 100k.

    Put your bearings on the end of a pencil and spin them. They should spin smoothly. If they're locked up or gritty feeling then replace them.

    Be careful when you push the shoes onto the flywheel pins. You don't want to crush the spring or it can break the first time the engine fires up. I use a tiny flat head screwdriver to lift the spring...

    That looks great. I like lighting up the truck itself in addition to having headlights. Makes it a lot easier to tell where you're going.

    What are you using for headlights in the bumper?
