I wouldn't say the hobby is dead yet, but it is slowly degrading where I live. I haven't driven any of my cars in at least 6 months because no one I know does rc anymore and I got into other things....
I wouldn't think twice about running dirt bike 2 stroke oil, also run what ratio the oil manufacturer recommends.
There used to be a youtube channel named XXX Main, they used to do some crazy stuff with nitro rc's.
Usually bad glow plugs are erratic, when one is bad for me it will start up fine and run for about a half lap then just stall out of nowhere.
Nice bike. Do you ride Dirt jumps?
I use the stock traxxas receiver batteries, so exactly what you had in it.
No I don't race it's just what my lhs has on the shelf.
You've gotta start somewhere
I use the VP power master fuel and I like it. I use the race mix with 9% oil though.
I used the 30 dollar 2s soft case lipos for a few years, they worked great for me. I just threw one away yesterday because the cells had been too far off from not being touched for over 7 months.
By drive shaft I'm guessing you mean the crank shaft? Also it sounds like the clutch bell bearings, but it's hard to understand what your asking from your description.
I use rear shocks in the front.
Sounds awesome. My uncle lent me a hobart mig welder so maybe I'll start building some new stuff as well.
I have powerstrokes with the springs they came with and 30 wt oil.
What are you breaking in the trans?
I run a 22t pinion and a 50t spur, .8/32 pitch e revo gears on 3s.
I would say get a 9mm glock if you want a 9mm, I also like 40's.
Ya just put your finger on the exhaust, it will shut it off immediately.
At 330 it was was damaged. How much, who knows? If it's truly running that hot you have an air leak, probably the front bearings.
IMO no. The one way bearing can still slip, the cords break, and they can jam up.
Are you on a plane when wanting to turn or are you barely moving?
I would love to know how to do metalwork like that. How do you get the dash to have that contour to it?
Don't use an aluminum skid plate and they are pretty durable. I broke one once because I hit a wood ramp and cased the landing which was also made of wood and it broke. The cause of it breaking was...
I just buy the crank cases with the bearings already installed from ebay. If you plan on installing high end bearings then just use the heating and cooling procedures.
You could try super glue since you have nothing to loose, but I can't see it being a permanent fix. I would just get a new wheel and hex.
