Talking

You guys want to get a powerful Italian engine that is really easy to tune?
Get yourself an AXE Rossi LSK or Cobra.
These engines are balistic and very easy to tune compared to a Novarossi.
I just ran in my LSK and i'm up to 2 litres now including run in and it is absolutely wicked!!!
I absolutely love this engine for both power and tuning.
Also you can get a very long run time out of them with the turbo button and the OS P3 Ultra Hot Plug.
I'm going to drop it into my CRT for this weekends race meet.
I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Talking AXE Rossi LSK

This is the cheapest place on the planet to buy this engine.
I am going to get another one one day soon.
http://ultrahobbies.com.au/store/cus...cat=277&page=1
The owner of the hobby shop also specializes in these engines so he knows all about them.
$389 is a bargain for the quality of this engine.
They take about 7-10 litres until they start really going hard.
The run in was probably one of the best and easiest run ins i've done.
Not many stalls from flooding and it fired first go on the bump box.
I'm impressed!

hey JFC, i installed mine on the outside channel like any other tire. yes, they do bulge out a little, but that means they will soak up the jumps more. don't worry about sidewalls, your CRT handles great anyways.

check the photos....
so much different. even the height also affected. it looks more like the HPI Nubz.
for info, i use the stock wheel/rims & belted it inside. i haven't glued yet. just wanna ask opinion here. if i not mistaken, marty Korn ever glued his tires inside further in. interesting. if i got extra wheels, im gonna tried inside & race it.

thanks Mac 4 soothing me.

what's the difference? what did you do differently between those two tires, if you actually did do something different?

I haven't tried glueing them on the inside of the bead yet but i've heard a few of the top racers do it.
They also dremel part of the bead off too, not sure which part though.
I'm wondering how well the tires will stay on the rims.
I've used my Crime Fighter MT's for 5 race meets and one of them was a major meet and i've only had to re-glue some small sections of the tires once.
I'm not too worried about the side wall flex as my CRT is as fast or faster than my CR.
A few guys went to the 40 series with 23mm hexes and all it did was destroy the suspension because you don't have enough cushion effect from a low profile tire.
If you glue them up and run them like that please let us know how they go.

thanks rcracing for the info. i think i stick with the original setup & get another set of rims(wheels) for the inside glue setup. i agree with sidewall flex, this i guess to cushion the high jump landing. thanks everyone.. yea u too mac.
