lol very true. I never said I was fast. Just said I can get 15 min. on 1 tank. Plus on this track, You cant go fast. Its a little technical track with lots of curves.

Practice run times are way different than race run times. In the video you were taking it really easy. You weren't on the gas as much as you would be in a race.

Yea im not fast at all. Ive only been in nitro a couple months and its way different than electric. Im still getting used to it..On one of my practices I got 15 min. on a tank probably because I was mostly on my lid...but yet again I never said i was a good driver.

my 2.5 has TONS of play, and my 3/32 has TONS of play. ive taken the head off once to change the piston and sleeve and the screws stripped. now i tried again and the screws stripped again WTF

i tried 4 different tools on all the screws, 2 2.5 and 2 3/32

+1 on the hudy tools. I chaecked the head bolts on my vspec when it was new with a 2.5mm and I just installed a EB mode head button once again 2.5 wrench. No problems here. There engines are from japan no way that standard 3-32 stuff is goona fit it's metric. Do your self a favor and invest in a good quality set of wrenches (not proline -worst wrenches ever). I love the hudy stuff.

stripping the head bolts has nothing to do with the driver's and all to do with the Driver.

I've taken off the head a couple times and dissembled the engine. I use the Losi 3/32" and it hasnt stripeed yet.

I've just finished running in my 3rd v-spec, and using a 2.5mm hudy wrench I've never had any head bolts strip yet.

Not all drivers are created equal... I've found that some have larger tolerances than others ?

I have had proline tools strip many hex heads before. I bought them when they came out and then junked them within a week. Out of the 6 wrenches only 1 works like its suppose to. Proline wrenches did not do me right.
