Default Glow plug choice.

Hey Aaron,
What glow plugs would you recommend for the Losi 454 engine other than the recommended one. (I can't get those here)
Thanks.

air8 - If the car is driving well, I'd leave the camber settings alone; it's not uncommon for off-road cars to show a little higher tire wear on the inside of the tire than the outside, particularly on high-bite surfaces. It's not as important as it is with on-road for the tires to wear evenly.

Zack and Travis - Haha! I'm going to try and make it out next week, even if it's just to run Slash.

Phend family - It was great to see you all again too! Congratulations again for a great weekend. What's next? Reedy Truck Race?

imaxx - Interesting choice of words, wasn't it?

rc_racer1 - I like bigger, faster cars just as much as the next racing fan...but it has to stop at some point. Some of the cars we've tested recently, right out of the box, are downright terrifying.

jamminjim - I'm not sure off the top of my head, but I think the Losi engines use short (O.S.-style) plugs. Check the length of the plug against an O.S. plug at your local hobby shop. Try A5's to stay with a similar medium-range heat plug.

Hey Aaron it was good to see you at the Nats. I have been thinking about the comment you made to me about the tires at the nats and boy was that a true statement!

I sent you an email to your hitorque account and I apologize if you found it inappropriate. I was merely looking for the some light at the end of an otherwise dark tunnel.

Hope all is well

Actually, we have the Ohio State Fair Shootout this weekend and the Horizon Hobby Shootout in Illinois is the same weekend as the Reedy Race.

Hooper - I laughed when I got the notification e-mail for your reply, since I did that review myself. Let me know what you think!

Casey - Haha. I thought this year's race was a pretty cool departure from past year's, and for more reasons than just that.

I just tried checking my work e-mail from my laptop, and I wasn't able (figures). I'll get to your e-mail as soon as I can next week. Considering the source, I'm sure it can't be that bad.

Phends - Ah, well that's a bummer. Will you be attending more nitro races next year?

Wow dude, we haven't talked in forever! I've been doing really well; living in a different city, working toward a different career, and loving every single day of it. How have you been?

I'm not sure what parts specifically are different between the two trucks, but I know that a lot has been changed and I can't imagine you'll be able to convert the old truck for a reasonable price.

Wow, those are big changes! Glad to hear you're doing well though. Hit me up with an e-mail or IM or something, let's catch up.

Without going through the parts lists one by one, I don't know which parts you'll need. Unless you got a very good deal on the old truck, I think you're just better off getting a whole new roller.
