Change the clutch bell to a 14 tooth & the spur to a 40 tooth.

A new spur gear would only cost you $4.There isn't anything i can think of that will increase power except by tuning the engine properly.

Performance = money

i agree w/ team duratrax. Performance and more speed is going to cost you. And $4 isn't too expensive to get some more low end grunt

Okay i understand now.Heres what you should be looking at http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXKAZ2&P=7

The spur gear is only 2 teeth bigger, i don't know how big the stock pinion gear is though.

i just bought a 14 toothe cluch bell (i think)
i dont know its got 14 teeth and it goes on the rod that comes out of the engine.
(i need to learn some terms)
and then i get home and figure out i need different size ball berings!!!
OMG
y didnt the guy at my lhs tell me?
then i went back and they had one but they where closed!
not i have to wait till tomarrow

do you know how many things you have to take apart/unscrew?
took me like 15 min just to get it off!
but its my first time so..

How mutch more torque will it give ,me?

Also i bougt a new pipe, how mutch will that improve anything?
here is a pic
(pipe i got but not this exact one, i got it some where else)

Keep in mind that tuned pipes do not increase power, they move your powerband. Since there is no description of that pipe, it's hard to tell whether that pipe is suppose to improve the low/high end powerband.

Im can't remember which way it is but i think short,stumpy pipes like that one will produce more torque then a long, skinny pipe.

Correct me if im wrong.
