A few of the top aussie drivers that run speeds also get that long out of a tank,a few were also getting 10 minutes in the mud.It depends on tuning,altitude and track conditions ect,my track is pretty bumpy so there is not a lot of power usage as your are allways feathering the car through th bumps,also i am running the 7mm restrictor.But the motor is still super quick.I completely understand if your skeptical i would be if i had not seen it with my own eyes

The new blue OFNA box is awesome. Probably the best box Ive used. I have the gray Mugen box which I like alot but I have to admit the Ofna is better.

I'm hearing a lot of unbelievable run times out of Aussie drivers on all kinds of motors. The normal laws of physics most not apply down there. After all, their toilets even flush backwards!

One of my friends was just down in Australia he said the toilets didn't flush backwards. So is it possible the ausie's aren't as backwards as we think they are? Just joking.

I did use the black ofna chrome top for my 8ight. I now use it for my GT2 and use the Losi box for the 8 and 8-T. I haven't had the troubles others have had. I like to be able to carry one box for the nights we run 8th scale. I have been trying to figure out how to mod the box in case something does happen.

Losi has a team driver from down here that I timed in Houston. He runs the Orion Crc wasp .21 and was getting 13 minutes easily. He won the Houston RC Pro due to the long run times.

Where does the blue compound fit in the Losi tire line up? I see the XBT on the race roller are a blue compound. Anyone know much about these yet? Harder or softer?
