That blue trail should only be really visable reaching topside of the acceleration correct?

Some fuels don't produce much smoke. Always a little bit, but not enough anymore to recommend someone to tune for a trail of "healthy smoke" coming from the pipe.

muzamil - Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for the rest of his life. I could look up the part numbers for you, or I could link you to the same thing I would look at...haha.

http://www.teamlosi.com/Products/Def...rodID=LOSA0846

These pages are available for all of Losi's kits. You can download the manual to the AD2 on that page, and find the part numbers for the upgrades you're looking for. To put the AD2 rear end on your truck, you'll need the rear pivot block, arms, hubs, hub bearings, axles, dogbones, and hardware. It's best to do it all at once, your truck will work better with the entire conversion versus just a couple of the parts here and there (not to mention most of it won't fit at all, haha).

If you do the rear end conversion, and get the front axles from the AD2, you'll be able to use the same wheel (A-7760, I think?) front and rear. The AD2 rear axles can use a threaded axle and locknut, but the quick change system works fine and there's really no reason to run the nut.

Fuels with lots of castor oil in them provide more protection against lean-conditions and can make the engine easier to tune, but as you guys have found out, will make the engine run hotter and with less power. Reason being, a 20% nitro fuel with 16% oil, will have less alcohol in it than a 20% nitro fuel with 12% oil (duh). Oil burns at a hotter temperature than alcohol does.

At least, that's how I understand it.

Does anyone know how to fix a wobbly jump in the front tires??

Its not a side to side wobble!!! Its like the tire needs to be balanced!!! When I spin it they always return to the same specific point I started! Anyone understand what Im sayin?

Modeling clay, or weight tape from a motorcycle store work very well for balancing tires.

If glued evenly and the foam stays flat, they should be reasonably balanced anyway. But you can always make it better.

So I would probably stick it on the opposite side Its a pretty bad problem when I hit the brakes my front end jumps bad!

What caused that Ballooning the fronts?

You can swap the carb around, but i cant see why you would "need" a rotary carb, if its fine i wouldnt bother swapping it out, id prefer a slide carb.
