on mine, i found 2 pairs of Pro-Line 40 series rims with 14mm hex on ebay.
sucks your stuff got delayed in the mail, ive been pretty lucky that i havent had too much delays with shipping, am having issues with a specific amazon seller though.
"shipped" the item (created label) and it uploaded, but has since sat like that since mid may. estimated shipping was set to have it arrive the 5th of August, so we will see.
hope you get to run yours soon!
thanks for the information on the wheels and tires, I will keep all of that in mind. Iíve ordered quite a bit over the last few few months, havenít had one issue until now. Waiting on Lunsford titanium lst turnbuckles first three weeks now, and 2 separate eBay orders involving novarossi exhaust stuff that says it was ďdeliveredĒ Saturday and now today, nothing in the mail box at my apartment complex either days. Iím really hoping it wasnít delivered to the wrong mail box in my apartment complex. Anyway, glad you got some run time buddy, Iíve been rocking out with my losi 8ight truggy and I actually just received a serpent 811b RTR Iím waiting to break in. I can always throw the stock exhaust back on and run it Whenever which I may just do. Still wondering where my 125$ eBay order is though. Hope you get youíre order in soon as well!

I have a couple LST 2’s and love them. Prob going to sell the one and keep the other. They are fun trucks! Always loved the sound of Nitro but I am not a guru at Nitro engines. Sometimes the LiPo is easier to deal with. Def the LSAT is my favorite nitro truck I have had.

hey that is awesome to hear! Hold on to at least one, from what I hear these will be future classics and Iíve heard of people truly regretting letting these babyís go. Nitro engines can make you want to rip your hair out and chuck the truck across the lawn, but once itís tuned and you ďunderstandĒ how to tune properly, I find they are almost trouble free. Just takes time to get it there. Most annoying thing about nitro to me is getting your kit covered in oil and grime haha. Even so nitro is wonderful, LiPo is insane Iíve driven a few of my buddyís lately and my god do they rip. Awesome to drive, I still prefer nitro though! Glad we have options in general in our hobby still

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well. Figured Iíd do a small update! My Lst runs great tank after tank and itís been a real pleasure besides my crappy brakes. I finally have to to a point where I can take it out, run a few tanks,and have no problems with breaking, glitching, or something going wrong. Anyway, Iíve been running the stock header with a reds 2104, and while I got my engine running good up top and down low with good temps, I could never quite get it to drop to idle quick enough, or have a super stable idle. Other then that it ran good. But I wanted to explore options that would enhance my power and and ability to properly tune my engine, so I did this:

Novarossi 41017 long on road header


let me tell you guys, itís a night and day difference. First of all, itís much, much quicker. So much quicker that it now shifts way too fast. Also, the idle is 10x more stable, and it drops instantly after full throttle runs time and time again. Canít believe how much smoother,quicker, and more reliable the engine is. And I had it good enough before, but itís just so much better with this novarossi 41017 and really goes to show what a poor match the stock header was for this novarossi engine. Also this header and pipe combo fits much better in terms of the seal of the gasket to the engine block, and pipe to the header. Before it was kind of wonky(still sealed with no leaks that I could detect) but now it fits perfect. Everyone, if you have an lst with an aftermarket .28 or bigger, please give this header or similar on road header a try. I think you will be amazed and the difference in performance . At least it works for this particular novarossi engine and Iím glad I tried it out!

Thatís the header I have in mine, I experimented the 41015,16 and Iím settled on 41017, it has a little torque over the 2. Lst looks familiar in YouTube, by the Iím MTB&RC good to see you here bro👍👍💪💪

holy crap bro whatís going on! Glad to see you on here too man, Iíve been a part of these forums since April but Iíve been lurking on them for 15 years or more haha. Good call on the 41017, I was thinking of trying the others too but I figured the 41017 was already short enough compared to stock, didnít want to lose too much bottom. Anyway, if you havenít seen it already, DavidRc on YouTube has the exact same setup as me and a running video. Itís crazy how much better this header helped my engine perform. I tinkered with the shift point yesterdAy, looking to run the LST tomorrow and test it out. Take care brother thanks for the holler

Haven't been on in awhile and just read through your journey here. Once dialed in the LST is probably the best most reliable truck out there. I've had several over the years currently have 3 LST2's. 2 of them are elec converted and one is sitting without a power plant. Wish I would of never got rid of my XXL. I put a Big Red in it and was never happy with it after that. Anyways keep it up great looking truck.
