Yeah, the noise is half the fun but I'd like a little less of it
A muffler would probably do better and not using two tuned pipes. But now I know, so I'm trying to figure out a simple muffler and see if I can create something better
Hooked up two standard pipes in series and the result was far better then I expected. Sure, some engine power was lost but comparing noise against power I'd say this wasn't that bad.
I'd pick the Slayer. It's slightly larger and 4wd. Mostly it's the 4wd that makes the decision for me.
And it's not for sale in some countries
Model Technics 25% then switched to O'Donnel 25% & 30%
It's what the LHS carries. Miss the smell of the Model Techincs fuel... :( Don't notice any major performance difference between them.
Sounds like the starter motor needs cleaning.
Get a spring mounted instead http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?I=LXUTG4&P=8
Some compression when it's not at work temp (guessing you didn't spin the flywheel directly after a run). Maybe it's not enough compression when it reaches work temp and that's why it dies?
Yes, as I recall you've mounted the correct way.
I would set needles to factory settings and remove the airfilter, look into the carb, blow the fuel line and you should see the fuel coming. If see...
"In fact when I see closer the fuel doesn't flow inside the carb, even when i blow up the line." Sounds to me like there's a blockage at the carb. Cleaning it may help
Thanks! Uhm, I put them on youtube...? Login & upload. Pretty simple
About 2nd gear, the screw should be aprox. flush. Again, there's not a really a factory preset on that one. But be careful not to turn it out too much!
Nah, stock gave the best of both worlds. Strength and speed. If you gear for crazy top speed you'll be missing strength (or is torgue the right word?) and it's no fun with a weak car when going...
Blue chassis, it's the Pro
Carry that starter box around and going back to charging batteries, not my cup of tea (that's why I ditched the EZ starter). I like the simplicity of a pull start. Too bad it fails at the owb....
Get a good grip with a polygrip plier on the owb and put a flat head screwdriver on the flywheel and twist the plier ccw. Works everytime.
I'm about done with the one way bearings. 1 year, 2 engines, and 4 bearings. Usually it slips but sometimes it gets stuck. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
I'd like to see a new future without...
Check the idle screw setting?
Anything broken at the carb?
How's the throttle servo position?
Does the brakes work at all?
Isn't there a built in failsafe? I know my truck lets off the throttle when I turn off the radio.
Looks like he has a throttle spring. If the servo decides to go full throttle crazy a spring won't help.
Hahahaha, I'm not the only one who visits my neighbours spontaneously :D
Last pic: It doesn't help you now but the brake linkage seems to be tightened alot with the grey "thingy" and not enough...
replace the gears.
It's there for saving the tranny. I run my as tight as the manual says. Running it fully tightened will work but the tranny is in more risk of getting stripped gears. Used to run it very tight but...
