yup I was there! Arrow engine ran flawless all weekend. I now have a gallon through it and I will be taking out the break-in shim and replacing the c-rod(so cheap why not right? lol) anyways Josh like always ran awesome! the tires really hooked up and the track layout wasn't for the faint of heart

Default Arrow GTR.21 after 1gal...!

ok guys well I got about 1gal swallowed up by my Arrow. I ran it all weekend at the Rc Pro Series in St.Louis. weather was steadily changing from cold and rainy to hot and humid at the end of the week. track was med size(170X75), smooth and damp at first then slowly started to dry out and groove up. all i gotta say the engine worked superb,,,absolutely zero hiccups, no flame-outs, great smooth and clean power band, and would idle all day long if you let it

here's a few pics of the piston and sleeve after 1gal. I'm running a 6.5mm nova insert, )OS P3 plug, and VP-Pro RS-1 pipe and Byrons 30/11 fuel. I run a Agama buggy with stock clutch setup. I will be taking out the break-in shim and start race tuning it and monitoring my lap times now that its broken in. I'll keep you guys posted.

Thanks. We ran a set of Blades during practice this past weekend and then ran Axemen to compare. They cut practice short so we didn't get to try the combo. I am a pretty big fan of the combo tire setups.

That is what I meant, they feel "harder" than Med Flexx Buggy T.Traxx. I ran the Med T.T. this weekend on a muddy/sandy track and they were awesome on that surface, and I am impressed with how mellow they feel going over ruts and chuckers.

I'll be running this weekend at the JConcepts Spring Nats in Omaha, NE and have 2 sets of the Med T.T., looking forward to seeing how they are on a dusty/blue-groove surface.

I do wish we had a VP Step Pin Truggy tire to choose from. Up here in the North, about 75% of our tracks are dry/dusty/loamy and Calibers/Sub-Cultures/City Blocks tend to be the choice.

Where can I order VP Pro tools? A Main is always out of stock. I know I can get them direct, but I need to order some other parts and would like to get everything in 1 order so I don't have to pay shipping on 2 separate orders.

Thanks

OS-2060 or Mugen 2042. I'm getting 9-10 so far but still breaking them in. Should be a 10-12 min motor. Arrow claims they get 14-15 min in Taiwan at their local track.
