I bought my Sport NT used. Runs really great, even better than my NEO TNT. Thing is, the M16 doesnt like the cold and requires warm start ups. Even without a heat source, the Mach .15 starts up with ease once you leave the glow ignitor on for a few seconds. I'm running a megatech #3 plug and using sidewinder fuel. Put an end to that adjust the diff thingy after every so amount of runs by getting rid of that adjuster nut holder; that is the culprit. The two pegs that slide into the outdrives is why constant tightening is needed. Once you get rid of the holder, excessing tuning becomes a thing of the past.

I had a lot of fun today with my xxx-nt in the snow. I made ramps and all. I will have pics of my truck the the fantom engine when I put it in. We got a foot of snow here. Can't wait until tomorrow to do it again. I stopped because it got dark. One down side to winter. I dryed my car off with a hair dryer after every tank. I also sealed all the electrics with electrical tape and silicone. I dryed it off in case. Can never be to careful.

Default Up grade XXX-NT RTR

I got mine in a raffle ! Put in lunsford ti parts and worked over the diff and RPM ballcups ,Trinity brake hub was added because the Sirio was too much for the plastic drive hub. The only problem is this motor has a power band that comes on too strong,like when you are comming out of a corner. Too much for our hard packed red clay track. The truck is fast!!!!!!

The shoe- I suggest putting a carb restrictor in, and turning your exponetial down on your radio so it isn't as punchy at the bottom end.

Yeah a carb restrictor should do it. I use a black ae carb restrictor on my fantom. When I ran it at the track my average speed was 51mph with about 10-12 minut run times. I changed my gearing though.

Yeah 51 mph was my speed down the straight. 15mph would be a disgrace to nitro. my mini-t is faster than that and its electric. 51 mph was with a fantom engine

He's was talking about the average speed in race not the top speed.If you are averageing 51 mph then you must race on a big straight away.

YA, what he said, your top speed might have been 51 MPH, unlikely though, the trucks top speed with stock gearing is just around 39 to 41 MPH. I race on a fair size track where lap times are like 33 to 36 seconds as lap, and i only average around 12 to 14 mph.

I changed my gearing because my track has 2 big straights. On my previous post I meant top speed not average speed because someone at the track had a radar gun.

Thanks for clarifying, I understand now that you have told me that.
