There is a slight difference in the oil. I can't remember which way though. It's almost a difference of 5w. I think the Losi oil is thinner.

mgtman - Right on the money!

Fastfreddy - No new cars; we have what we feel are the best buggies in the world, and have had enough time to figure things out this time..it's on in '05!

ice cream man - I'd check www.rc10.com for some setups for the T3, and start tuning from there. Run one of their setups and tell me what you'd like the truck to do differently, and I'll help you out.

ted - Those are Taper Pins, which is the tire we use on smooth and maintained blue groove tracks, and a lot of indoor clay tracks.

Check this out for information on Losi's tires

I think he was probably referring to oil filled shocks. I'm not sure what the difference in oil is, I only use Losi oil.

Remeber those unbreakable new AD2 rear arms.

Weeeeeellllllllll.

I broke on through the middle of the arm tonight! It sucks. I am not sure they are even avaiable yet! Oh well. I was on my last run anyway but it still kind of sucks to know it can be done!

Ryan had a screw back out of the hubs and broke the same rear arm!

Just thought I would let you know!

Save what? We found the insert that fell out of Ryan's arm so we have that. I am not sure how those are going to be sold. My arm split right through the middle of the arm. The hub end was completely in tact! My truck had too much steering for the loose conditions last night at Rev. I think I am going to move the front camber link in on to the #2 hole to see if I can take away a little on power steering.

Just move the rear hubs to the upper holes..that'll get rid of on-power steering FOR SURE.

Can I borrow some of that steering, by chance? haha

If you have any pieces of the broken arms, save 'em.

Aaron,

I sent you a PM

But, I also have a question for you. You know that sound an engine makes when it is obviouesly too rich....kind of like its drowning at top end....How far do you lean it out from there?....like, when is enough...enough? Also, what's the highest temp, reasonabally safe for running my CV?

Thanks!

They say not to run the cv past 220 as it's not an ABC sleeve but nickel plated. I've ran mine hotter, but I wouldn't go much hotter. As far as tuning it when it's rich just go until you get the performance you want. Hehe, kind of anyhow. You can tell when it's to lean to, if it's super fast and just seems to be flying you can bet it's to lean. It may sputter at the top too from not getting enough fuel. That's not the blubbery rich sound though. But to much of that and you'll fly the rod.

I love the CV. It's an awesome motor in my opinion. Cheap to buy, cheap to rebuild. If you feel you're being outrun though, it's time for a cv-r, tr, nova, or some other motor. I won't mention porting...

1) I know what you mean with the too fast feel....believe you me, before I knew anything about tuning, I cranked that thing up soo dang far it was almost ear pearcing! Then I learned...AHYUK. That makes sense though, just go for feel.

2)I couldn't be happier with my CV....for my first nitro car/engine, its everything I could have wished for.

3) My next engine will be a TR....or that thing Aaron is running

4) I already fully shafted myself trying to port the sleeve....quite unsucessfully I might add.

Thanks!

We just got done porting and polishing my .12 CV about two hours ago. I got the durtrax ABC piston for 20 bucks at tower hobbies. I got one tank through is and got to go back outside to finsh breaking it in but it's like 23 degress out side. Im about too frezze my butt off. But the Big race is tomorrow so you got to do what you got to do.

remember, not enough heat can be just as detrimental as too much heat. If it's that cool out, I'd do the aluminum foil trick. or use a heat gun to pre-heat it before you continue to break it in.
