The track was not prepped at all and very dusty/sandy so I think part of the reason I kept stabbing the throttle was in search of traction...Couldn't really find any lol. That os .28 rips hard. I barely gassed it on the triple and quad and it seemed to float over those jumps like nuthin.

sounds like the gearing is off in a few sections, seems to run out of top end a tad early, one tooth bigger on the clutch bell, or smaller on the spur would bring that power in to your range, on that track ne way. just a thought, something to test IMO.

On my truggy i run 2 teeth higher for the OS .28 and it still pulls wheelies. The motor is the most impressive engine i have EVER owned and i have had a few. I run the fiorini clutch with 2 standard springs, it lasts for a long time and makes the engine very smooth. I also get 10 minutes to a tank with average lap times of 40 sec (fastest truggy lap to date on the track is 37 sec).
