yeah looks like the weather only allows us to run in engines !!

I am considering another engine now ! what should I get?

I have the spares.... but the is very little compression from the piston! The present bushing in the con rod does not appear to be too worn.... only a slight 'shift' in the oil when you move it in the crank!! No mark on the wrist pin...last time I took it out...... about 2 gallons ago!!

we dont have good indoor carpet track for 1/12 ! TRT is just too small and the carpet is not the right material for 1/12

the slop on the conrod enough to reduce the compression as the piston wont never go up to the right level. that's the reason you feel the compression fade out.
