To tell if it hits full throttle just remove the air cleaner (engine not running) and pull the trigger on the radio. If it doesn't open all the way you need to adjust your linkage or epa on the radio. Sometimes you have to rotate the carb in the throat to be able to get full throttle if you don't have end point adjustment on your radio. I've never ran a slide, but making it work should be about the same as a regular.

As for recommending another engine.. What do you have? You could just get a different carb for it if you don't like the slide. As for motors, you can never go wrong with an OS .12, be it a cv,
cv-r, or tr. Novarossi mt .12 is a popular engine also. But alot of people put os carbs on them. OS motors are notorious for being very easy to tune, and staying in tune.

No problem. If it's getting full throttle and doesn't feel like it, it's probably running to rich. Do you temp it ever? If you don't have a temp gun, you can just put a water or spit drop on the head. It should sizzle up in a couple seconds, if not, lean it out a bit.

He still sells his kits. They are just out of stock right now. You can email him and ask him when they'll be in. Or they might even be in and the site wasn't updated yet. So just get in touch with him, he'll hook ya up.

Check to see if you have the left and right mixed up on either the steering arm, or the castor blocks. The angled part of the castor block should face forward I believe.

Dave I've looked myself and can see no place that would work on the stock bulkhead. But if you are using the widening kit you could drill another hole on the hub carrier ear. That would be out and down. That might give the same effect as drilling the bulkhead up and in. What does it do for the guys who drill the new hole? What reason do they say they do it for? Does it help spinning out?

He said it helped traction, but mostly helped squaring up, and able to carry speed threw a corner better, he said it made a big difference, I got a aluminun bulkhead, Im gonna give it a wirl. Ill let you know.


How did your boys do in Ohio?? Only one guy from here ended up going, he went alone, He bumbed from the E to the C main, came in third in the C main. He is one of the fastest truck drivers in this area.

Im going next year.

you must have some super fast local racing.
I bet that running that carpet this winter will help you a bunch in off road, I have noticed the guys that are real good around here have some on road experience to.
