Not really. I would just replace the parts you have problems with and try to narrow it down to something that's causing it.

i dont know how to narrow it down any further. the only original parts still in my tranny are the top shaft and out drives. everything else, including the tranny housing itself is brand new. the brake causes some binding but not enough to really concern me, its getting replaced with the GT brake soon enough. but even with all new aluminum gears i get about 2 seconds of spin out of the rear tires. im thinking it may be the slipper, it looks a little off, which causes the spur gear to be a tiny bit off, but it still sounds just as loud as it did before. it sounds like a really loud zipper

Default engine ?

Aaron which engine are you currntly running? I'm looking into getting a new engine this winter and am up for ideas. I have ran O.s stuff for years and am racing a mugen mt12 now. the top end on the mugen is awesome but I have problems with the slide carb and midrange hit causing my tires to light up on exit. what do you think?

Put an OS rotarty carb on your MT! It will smooth out the throttle response some!

I'm running a rotary and already have too much punch and power than I konw what to do with! I can't imagine what a slide must feel like.....I don't know nitro that well (yet) but I'd stick with rotary.

Switching to an OS carb will do two things. One OS carbs hold a tune better then just about any other carb. Also with the smaller carb opening you will loose a little power as the engine will not be able to take in as much air. It will help smooth things out but a rear exhaust engine normally has a lot of bottom end. Side exhaust usually are smoother engines.

balla - Shouldn't be any black grease leaking from anywhere. Start checking for broken parts.

Adam - I've e-mailed Chad a few times but haven't heard from him. Go ask him on the on-road forum.

stu - The new Sirio rear exhaust .12, the Adam Drake Edition. It's smooth, has a ton of power, and DIALED gas mileage.

the new sirio looks hot as all hell. its got sirio power, sirio quality, and you can keep your existing exhaust system. i just dont think you can beat it. then again i have no idea of a street price, but if price is no option then definitely go with the sirio drake.

there was an interview in RCCA? november? what page!?

yeah mafia got that one golden, i think most any molded part by rpm id damn near indestructable. in all honesty, it may be worth waiting until you can replace the ball studs too. it seems to me that if i replace the cups and not the studs, the new cups wear faster. i dont really care how much faster, but i do notice that they dont wear evenly. *shrug* my $ .02
