lol!...Keep us posted on how you like it. Everyone who has bought one is very happy with the Argus.A couple of my customers have hit the 3 gallon mark with no problems or issues. And they are very fast engines for sure!

Thanks,
Lance

Dana, resized the Nova .28 and installed new ceramic bearings. Its in great shape. The Nova 367 crank pin is worn .005" out of tolerances, it would need a rod and front bearings as well. Prob not worth the money it would take to rebuild, but let me know what you want to do either way.

Thanks,
Lance

Ya I know!..lol

But most of the big races are out at Revealtion so thats where I end up going. You have to admit though. Rev is pretty challenging When I go out to thunder alley Its like Im in heaven..lol How nice it is to have traction! I love the high bite surface and Skate ramp type jumps out there! A lot different that Rev where it is very loose. Both great tracks

Thanks,
Lance

You will See me there!! I have been wanting to get out to Thunder Alley. Weather should be all cleared up by then and back to So-cal normal..lol
Love running my B5 in truggy out there, little blips of the throttle and I clear everything. Great fuel mileage track. Really nice track for sure. Just make sure you dont run Super softs out there!...
