I'm tellin' ya. If you do it ,that motor will puke in no time. It's ment for short bursts and jumping. You can do it, but you got to take it easy a few moments for cool downs and a litle load up, then let 'er rip. Maybe three runs and then cool downs. Just go 1/4 gas 1 min. and you mite get away with it, but I dought it. BTY, it's a fuel hog, maybe 7 min. when hot roding. You said you could get Sidewinder so use that. Stay away from the Traxxas stuff 'cause it runs hot in every thing. Way to much oil in there. Tune it so you see smoke all the time your pegin' it and you'll be OK for awhile. Have fun!!!

Hmm, seems like a very delicate engine. Are high speed runs up and down the street OK, or just any full throttling for longer than a second?

Sure. Why not? Still doesn't mean you need to clean/check 'em alot.

Ok. Here is my expierience with servos. I like you tried to get buy with a cheap jr and cheap hitec servos. My hitec still works but is slow as shit. I mean it's so slow that it's borderline impossible to pump rev my engine and slow as hell response for anything other then a straight line. My jr 650 for steering worked good for a month or two but the gears have a TON of play in them. Steering is all over the place. Now to be fair when i first started out i really did not know what i was doing and my end points were a bit too far. You can get by with cheeper ones for a while but mine lasted 3 months and are in the trash can. That is just me though. I have hitec 7955's, and let me tell you, nothing beats that kind of steering or throtle response.


They have some good hitec for 75, 80$ they arent TG but i hear they are really good as well.


and whatever you do, stay away from traxxas fuel if at all possible. I switched to byrons and man big differnce. My engine will hold a tune forever
