The OS's are definatley the easiest to tune. But I've heard a Wasp or Mt-12 with an OS carb is a dream. I will do it to my wasp as soon as I feel comfortable with the engine.

Oval, I have heard the same about the carb mod. Even heard of them on Picco motors. I think it will be a trick set up.

the os rotary carb is the way to go. i think the slide carbs powerband is better for onroad than offroad.

Good to hear that your addin some bling to your ride.... Do u race ? I know some guys that run the battery box, ive never had problems with landing on the box and breaking it except once. Its a good idea to get it if you break em all the time. Have fun.... Heres to Beers.

I am getting into the offroad racing scene..... been racing onroad for a little while... but took a break from it... now I want to get back in to racing but going to do offroad.

I am planning on getting the the Losi XXX-NT ADE Stadium truck..... I have a couple of questions....

1. what would be the best engine to run in this truck?

2. and if any hop-ups are needed on this truck, what would I have to purchase?


sorry for the newbie questions, but I am starting all over again in the hobby....

for a motor i would go with an os cv or cvr.they are reliable and easy to tune.as for hop ups i would definately get the aluminum rear pivot block.the stock one is ok but its a pain to change out when it brakes.

Thats a good call on the motor. The only other one i would suggest would be the MT12 and os12tr. Like froggy said, definetly buy the trinity rear aluminum pivot block. I would buy it before i put the truck together and put it in when i assemble the kit. Other than that, thats pretty much it, stock up on front a arms, they can break for unknown reasons...., just out of no where, its like, that time it should have broke off the worst crazh of the day, when it actually breaks, its like something that would never break it. Have a blast is all i can say, offroad is the bomb.
Cheers to beers.

Where is the best place to get the Trinity Rear Pivot Block at? Would you also replace the front pivot block too?



Thanks

stormerhobbies.com for the pivot block

Some guys are braking the battery box on the rear of the truck.

Native Racing makes an aluminum box that is indestructable.

Alot of guys are also running Trinity rear hubs. They are aluminum also.(Blue anodized)
