    Also I was swapping over my buku and the shoes look hammered only 4 tanks on it. Anyone seen this or is this normal wear?

    I was thinking with the center diff it would help the tranny gears hold up better. U think its too much power for the stock tranny gears? Have u tryed to gear it up higher?

    Thats all me too. Just seen a few people gear a lil high to take some punch out so the tranny holds up better and still have pleanty of low end power. But thats what im looking for. Come around a corner and have the punch i need to clear the jumps. Keep me posted. Im still looking for the "right" engine for me..

    I havent had time to run it yet. By the time i get home its dark and cold. Seems to be a good engine but its still only a .19 and running vs .21 engines that are worth more than my truck, i need all the power i can get. My dynamite is more like a back up enginen for me. But the true test will be when i take out to the track. Maybe it will be a .21 killer.. LOL.. Cant knock it till it get on the track. When i seen your post, JL Red dot, i had to ask about it..

    The weather question is tricky. Its starts out 30 degrees F then can go up to the 60's and back down.

    I run 30% as well and we're pretty close on temps right now and I'm only 900 ft above sea level so i'll start with those needle settings thanks for the info
