had this out yesty , put over half a ltr through it in 1.5hrs non stop . i took out the 5.5mm CARB restrictor from the ninja .12 carb , OMG this lil engine opened up . had a extra power-band now (way up top) . took abit to get there but when it did it flew!. just a lil boggy down low ,ya need to not give it to much throttle down low . but with the extra RPM's the motor is doing with the massive carb and short on-road top-end header and pipe , i think im wearing out the lil RTR engine very fast lol. the engines only seen about 2-2.5 ltrs and its getting less and less comp . still go's good as but , not much comp now . engine was not made for the rpms its pulling .

dunno wat engine to go for next .. ?

yeah would not be hard to make . guys are making the rc10gt into sc10gt's . but to tell you the truth i just love the look of gas truck more than short course .. plus small block off road is pretty much dead so i dout companies like losi will put there money and time back into it . 1/8 is where its at .

8th is not where its at every where. No one races 8th scale locally where I am at. Track ran all the 8th scale guys off. I think more people would race gas trucks again if they were 2wd sc. I personally can not grasp this whole electric concept. I can't do it. I would rather convert my gas truck an run it with BL sc's. I just preffer nitro over electric. If Losi made a conversion it would help move old xxxnt inventory if they have some left

oh ok sorry . i thought 1/8 was the only nitro run at most places . any ways . wat iv found with running a .12 engine is .. the tuning window is alot smaller . iv got 2 1/8 race buggys with .21s as well . iv found when the .12 is really on-song it takes no time at all to get hot and go off ! but just out of the window and its to rich and not snappy .. where my .21s i can keep the tune right for tanks and tanks . saying that tho inbetween tanks the xxxnt does cool down very quick ..
