thanks for info. i am using futaba 9451. 2 gallons thru zero problems. knock on wood. i know some people say don't use digital servo on throttle, but i have done in the past also with no problems. i have a airtronic 358 and a 359z. does anyone think i should switch the futaba 9451 to steering and put one of the airtronics on the throttle?

Wow, now that was one long thread. It has taken me nearly four days too read the whole thing, 46 pages worth of a lot of excelent information . I have a RTR, that my wife bought me for christmas . I have just a little under a half gallon thru it. And the first thing I will do before putting another tank thur her is make sure the EPA's are correct as per Super's post, it would seem this is a very picky car to want it's self set-up correctly.
By the way everyone Hello, I'm Erik. And this is my first true attempt at Nitro, I have driven Electric cars all my life. On first impression this car does want to drive fast, and turn even faster. I cant wait to take it to a track and drive it over some jumps, I want to see she it flies

Peace and goodwill

Patrick, I also have a 9451 that has been through a gallon in my gas truck and now a gallon in the 8ight. I also have a 359 on standby. We'll just have to wait and see.

A couple of things I do which I have not seen mentioned yet are polishing the throttle rod so that the plastic thing slides easily. And on my OS VG the throttle boot was pushing the throttle open when at rest. I just push more of the boot onto the carb so that it actually pulls the throttle closed.

Now I knew there was a good reason for keeping our rods polished...

rear doesn't but the front does. Its just easier to take it all out. I didn't like it at first but after doing it a few times its actually pretty quick. and with the way the diffs are inclosed in there I never find any dirt or dust in the diff housing or on my ring and pinion

I couldnt get the rear half of the rear diff case out without taking the entire rear off the chassis... I'll fiddle with it some more.
