Default OK stupid ?

OK I have a .26 in my Aftershock, I know how the Revo's and T-Maxx has the 3.3, so my question is what does my .26 translate into(such as the 3.3 or 4.6)?

Hey thats an easy one its about 4.26. I found a good site for you.

http://www.onlineconversion.com/volume.htm

By the way .21 is the cubic inch capacity. And 3.4 is the cubic centimetre.

Hope that helps.

Hey thanks I think I can use that in every day life too and not just r/c motors lol


What do you think is the bigest motor I can get in my Aftershock/LST?

its been done the .32 engine isn't the best and strongest out though. Bigger isn't always better look into novarossi engines

put a different pipe on the mach .26 that comes in the aftershock and it will scream. The pipe that comes stock sucks for performance. I put a JP3 on mine but losi also sells a tuned pipe/header for the lst that will work as well.

ive never bored and ported a big block. but i reported my TRX 2.5R. made the ports bigger and added one. made a noticable difference. novarossi, LRP, and O.S. are probably your best bet on power.

not sure if the o.s .21 would be good for a heavy aftershock but if you want the baddest hp for them look into the novarossi 528 series...those are among the most powerful bb you can get and if ported they're even crazier...the rb is good to...but i've heard they don't have much top end on em..don't know as i've yet to run mine...another good engine is the picco p3 those engines are ballistic and then an sts .28/.30 makes good power as well...

superchargers are a waste of money. absolutely useless. the O.S. VG .30 is a good engine. supposedly tons of torque and compression. so is the LRP spec 3 .28 truggy engine. ive seen one in a LST and it was amazingly fast. ive also seen the new Axail .32 in a revo and it was a rocket. dont know about reliability or anything on the axail though

That suck's the superchargers are a waste because it is a pretty cool idea.

All the Aftershock's are is LST's and they are lighter than LST because there kinda striped down, so something like the LRP .32 should be really fast .
