traxxas 2.5 issues
I had a traxxas 2.5 on my nitro 4-tec, until yesterday when it blew up. it had just been rebuilt with new rod,piston and sleeve set and only had little over a quart of fuel threw it after the factory recomended break-in was completed.
I pulled it apart and the clip that holds the wristpin in had come out and wedged itself between the piston and sleeve and busted the side out of the piston, is this typical of the 2.5s or just my luck?
I already have a traxxas 3.3 on the way to replace the 2.5, I know several people that have the 3.3s and they get at least 5 to 6 gallons out of them before they split the rod, plus the 3.3 has tons more power.
