it's kind of funny that the cheaper engines are usually easier to make them go fast.

So......you spent $200.00 on a new engine instead of $30.00 on a ceramic rear bearing?

I ordered the TKO Bearings just waiting on them now. I had a EB P5X that I got two gallons through and the rear bearing went out. I got the new P5X bearings but it was too late and now it needs a pinch. I hope that my Plus-5 will be ok when I put the new bearings in. I just bought the STS because I need something dependable for the pro series. I'll use the Plus-5 and P5X for backups if everything goes as planned. I was going to use the STS as a backup but the way it's running There is no reason to take it out. It was just as fast as a V-Spec, OPS, P5X, and a Collari B7. If I can get more than five gallons out of it I'll be buying another one.

DRKWNG,

i just got 4 gallons of fuel through my STS .21T engine and this little mean powersource its running as strong as first day ... i have a national level event by the end of July in Mexico, and i will buy another STS .21T "just in case", but for sure i will try to do the entire event with the old engine ...

Good luyck with your engine, im really pleased with mine ... (if you need a new one, contact racernine.com) ...

Dan,

I'm assuming you got all the bugs worked out of your sts motor last night by the main? I know earlier on before racing began we were tuning in the low-end, and it was working decent by the start of the quals. Then later on during the quals you mentioned the high end felt lean, so you richened it up to bring down the temp. a bit. Did everything work out ok? Was the motor running well during the main?

I still need to work with it a little but it was running very well in the main. At least the first minute before the shock pulled apart. Still haven't finished a gas race since the pro series. And I only finished 3 of 6 at the electirc races at the regionals. I forgot to tell you why my truck stopped, the negative wire on the motor came off. Two of the three times my car broke, at the regionals, could have been avoided if I have done a better job wrenching on them. By the way did you win last night?

Hey what is a good set of clutch shoes for the jammin ftx1cr buggy? I have gotten around three gallons of nitro with the jammin ones. I would like to know if there is another set of clutch shoes out there that will last longer and not take away performance. Thanks

i guess you will have to leave the spring decision to yourself. his track might have a lot of jumps, while mine is virtually flat all around.

sorry about that guys I did leave a few things out


The rear shocks have 45 losi in them

The springs are mugen blues ( almost like a light blue )


At the start of the day the track is in great shape but by the mains the track is rutted and really dries out in the 30 min mains. Also the track only has one double jump, one triple which you can backside , and a jump to table top which you can backside or flat land very easy, but like I said the track does get rutted worse as the day goes on.

I will try to post some pics of the track for you all to see.
