I finally have a chance to post
Ive been running Triton motors for a few months now. All I can say is wow! Great run times, easy tune and tons of power. Reminds me of my OS Speed days but better service and price.
What hooked me was when I went to PNB and was able to fatten them up a tad and still walk up on others down the front straight. Mind you the front straight was long as hell. I was worried I need a 14 tooth CB due to the straight and run ups but both my L5's had all I needed and then some.
Ive also been using the Duo Ventury in my buggy. This was a big help getting over back doubles with a short run up. I have no plans on pulling it out!

Im the first to admit Im not the greatest motor tuner. Tritons are easy to tune!
A+ in my book
Great motors Lance! Keep up the good work

Will do.

I have been tracking down a steering centering issue in my buggy. Replace a part and drive it up and down the street. Repeat x4-5...finally solved it with the servo horn.

Every time the L4 fires right up (with a little preheat) runs just like the last time I ran it and delivers a reliable consistent nitro experience. Now they just need a little dirt on them...

Not sure what happened but Amain doesn't have Triton engines on their site anymore. I know they used to because that is where I bought mine from.
Maybe somebody here knows and can chime in.

well I just ordered my First L5 engine , gotta say I have never met Lance .... but since last year i have been emailing him and asking so many questions , about engines , plugs , pipes , he had always replied within a day and has never made me feel like i was wasting his time , - and now that i have bought one Im looking forward to giving this engine a good racing season , and il keep posting about it as time goes on , - so stoked about his one!!
I started bashing running traxxas 2.5 , and 3.3 - then Mach .26 , Axial .28 , Axial .28RR
Wasp .28 - Losi 427 and 454 , Lamberto collari .32 x2 - os .18tm / OS VSPEC .21

Ran the L3/2034 last weekend on a higher bite track and man this thing rips. Only thing I would probably do different is run it with the 2108 pipe in buggy. Use the 2034 in truck. It had plenty of power to clear everything even running it rich as it wasn't 100% broke in. I can't imagine what it will feel like now that it is and it can be leaned in a bit. High Five Lance on this motor. Looking at possibilities to run it in Truck this weekend!

I decided to sell direct and to smaller shops. It is too hard for smaller shops to compete with the massive ones with all the sales and discount codes.

Triton website is now setup to sell internationally.
