i used to love sts till i got a go. i gave the "rebuilt" sts a shot during warmup in a club race and my "brand new" crank shattered, again, after about 4 laps. if they could make a descent crank these motors would really be good. i still have the other sts in the box with its "new" crank, but am scared to fire it up now. maybe i'll throw in a go crank and see what happens. the stock cranks lasted about 4 gallons on both motors initially.

Sam, your making it worse dude, They don't even have sponsored racers, nobody at the worlds is going to run a $100 sport engine. Please stop opening yourself up to abuse, because it really bothers me how everyone is attacking you about these engines, and your just making it worse, and adding fuel to the fire. Everyone knows how much you love the STS brand, leave it at that and stop giving people reason to flame you

integra,

the 2010 worlds will be won by an sts .21, these motors are that awsome ive upgraded my sirio and rb for 1, so when an sts goes flying past you, you will be in a pretty good predicament to go jam your motor

Cheers bud but its cool, I drive a Nanda powered STS and all is good, I started this thread to discuss STS engines, I am not worried about the flamers or abusers. The usual RCTech suspects will always flame, I dont listen to them!!! Little do they know they are just rasing the profile for STS.

I thank your for your kind words though!!! good to see there are still some genuine people in RC-Tech!!!

LMFAO Sam-E what ever your taking can I have some? Honestly you must be on crack to think that a Pro would even look at a craptastic STS... Also maybe the title 'STS world class engines' is not proper?

discuss? you haven't said one factual thing about them:

2008 world champion(LIE)
"THE DRAKE" runs it(LIE)
2010 world champion???

a discussion would be:
your settings
tips
tricks and or other various useful to new users..granted people will flame you..that happens on every thread

but please talk about what you've found to work as I am sure they are others who share your love for STS...but by posting crazy things such as 2008 world champion no one is going to take you or this thread seriously

now eventhough i don't run the engine anymore i'll say what i do know:

stock shims work perfect on 30% fuel
engine runs best on sts 0403 pipe(and they're cheap around $40 new for pipe and header)
engine needs at least 1.5 gallons but once it gets there it's pretty fast(not vspec fast but fast enough)
check the carb because they are known to have leaks and the seal under the carb(id say buy spares like i did for them because all the stuff is cheap)
id really suggest getting ceramics for the engine of the batt because the stockers are junk..

that's as far as my knowledge extends...good luck to those choosing these engines

Dan Drake is probably better than Adam.
Look at him in his element
