I can clear all the jumps but this short triple at the back of our track. There isnt much run up time. A buggy with a Ofna hyper will easily clear it. I have mine WOT to make it. My truggy doesnt steer much either, think I'm getting a brushless buggy. my C6 would be nuts in a buggy.

Longer header tube will give you more bottom end. The gearing i'm running is stock 14t cb and 54 spur. My clutch set up is a stock RC8T flywheel with Racers Edge carbon std. shoes and Mugen 1.1 springs. I ran my C6 in my RC8 buggy and just went up to a 17t cb to help tame the bottom end. But yeah its really a crazy engine for a buggy.

My C6 L2G is just past the 2 gal mark and starting to wake up. I have good luck running a OS p3 plug, I,ve tried a 053, fls 2035, but my fav is a tsais t32. More power than I need in my truggy, short runups are a cinch. I use a fiorini slider with carbon shoes, 3 short springs. I,ve been spoiled by the lack of maintenance on the slider, shoes wear forever, does this thing ever need new clutch bearings?
Any advice on increasing runtimes, at 8-9 minutes, would really like to make a 20 minute main on 1 stop.

Im pretty sure they are shimmed from the factory to run with 25% nitro.

Im running 2 short (hard springs) and 1 long. My bell is a little blue from the heat so I wasnt gonna try 3 hard but I might try it since your using it. Usually the clutch is like 170. Clutch bearings last forever like you say, lol. Best clutch ever.
