Shotime, shoot me a email or PM. Look seriously into the gro lines of .21, you really don't need anything more than a .21 even for truggy. When your ready to purchase let me know and I may can save you some money even over the coupon codes I found for you in my previous post.

It really was a good post! I'm sure your right, neither is a real monster but given that it's a modded engine I tend to believe it's got a little more grunt than most other non modded engines. A lot of guys are running the .24's since they have similar fuel consumption compared to a .21 but a little more bottom end. I'm just wondering if I need that extra bottom end since the Losi is lighter and smaller. Maybe I would be better with a little more top end since my weight and size will make up for the difference in the bottom. I race at revelation raceway which for you guys that don't know of it is a pretty large track with a very long back straight. It's also very technical with lots of large doubles and triples.

Doesn't matter, he is sponsored by Racefactor he's only running Go! The .25 is still cheaper than a stock Jpx and he was 3 laps up on second place.

If you get 10 minutes fuel mileage on a motor you are pushing it pitting at 8 minutes. You need a cushion incase you get upside down or something happens. I was just saying pitting at 7.5 minutes I never have to worry. I can always get better mileage than my son because he's always on the gas and getting more laps in the race. Here's an Example, you have to wait until the start of the race, he's the leader. He is running a stock Go .25.http://www.mnnitroseries.com/gunner/...4%20Truggy.wmv

He never saw you post before the race, he can drive your truck sometime. He is pretty good at suggesting a setup change, even if it's not his brand.
