Default Force .28 Over Revved Not Good! :(

Hi all,

My message to all. Don't use the battery tray with Alka's and try jumping.

I pulled a noob move over the weekend. I was using the battery tray with 4 x AA Alkalines. Well, I hit a 5 foot maybe 6 foot bike jump at 3/4 throttle. Got maybe 10 to 15 feet in the air and got about 10 yards from the jump, and Landed Great. Back wheels hitting just before the front.
This is were the story turns bad. After the landing I lose control over the CRT, it goes to full throttle and runs away from me. Hits another bike jump and goes flying into a bush, were the wheels are off the ground. My engine goes Full Throttle for 30 to 40 Seconds with the wheels off the ground. Just before I can get to my truggy, the engine stops. I was hoping it ran out of fuel. Not my luck.

Here is a pic of the engine now.

Well, it almost got to a gallon, in it's life.

What engine should I get for my CRT now days?

Nickmind - 2 x savages, hyper 7, Revo 2.5, TC4, T4, 3 x 18T, CRT x1, Tmaxx, 8ight & 8ight-T 2.0 - all ran from a 3PK and spektrum.
