agreed, the .28 gets me out of trouble a lot, I'm not the best driver, but not terrible. I have a soft enough trigger finger that run times on it aren't too bad and i don't overdrive it.

Like someone said tho, may just need a clutch adjustment, 1.1mm spring are a must on a .21(for the most part)

He already answered that...

I run 1.0 on my truck, with a VSPEC. Works fine... I want just a LITTLE more motor next time though... the VSPEC just won't last long enough if put a race tune on it.

I'd love to have a C6BB but the price is ! I might have to try the new Werks 5 port.

Engines are motors... but motors aren't always engines.

And it is "an" engine not "a" engine, since you are so concerned about proper use of language...

Ok let me solve the mistery.

I'm running the losi clutch with 2 alum, and 2 carbon, stock outa the box, well the same setup... The pipe is a 007HT. And in my rush to get a new flywheel a while back I must have bought the 14 instead of the 13 tooth clutch bell, so I've got that too.

The reason for the new engine is I bought a truggy, already had a buggy...kinda need two of them.

Did that EB head button cause any tuning trouble?
