how do you like that motor?

That's what I currently run in all my cars. 2 black and one gold spring with the blue shoes. Talk about thumping power off the line or out of corners. I will never change that set up unless someone finds something better.

Well, I ran it last season on 20% Tornado fuel and wasn't that impressed. I got some advice from a local hot-shoe on-road guy who runs it and he told me the engine runs best on 25%. He gave me a baseline of where my needles should be as well and now it runs AWESOME! I had to go to the 14t clutch bell cause it had too much low end grunt on it. The 14t works well and for a 1/8th scale track a 15t would not be out of the question. (On 20% fuel the motor would not get hot enough to get a proper tune for me. I couldn't get it above 180 degrees F. On 25% its pulling on average 200 degrees F without the body).
Stiffler.....Thankyou for the clutch setup! I called my LHS and they have it in stock so like I said, I will try it out this weekend.....
