Hack Hack Hack I love a good Hack. Hack Hack LOL


Thanks Dennis..........will do

I am not that bad

Default Rossi Engines

Ceramic pistons = long life,low wear..

To bad we cant break away from the airplane style engine design. Maybe make reed valve intake type engine and ditch the heavy crank. What about a v-twin .21 on-road engine. Does anyone think the 4-stroke engine is gonna take off or just die?

start with this book if its still in print, The 2 Stroke Tuners Handbook many years ago. It relates to older motorcycle stuff but is where I started. Once you get the basics down then go from there.
Thanks Dennis! I looked on Amazon.com and it seems the book is out of print. I will check my local library and see if they have it somewhere in the county. I will definately begin my education there!

Oh JD don't get my post wrong. No ill feeling taken or given. It's hard to convey fun sarcastic ribbing over the net except with something like or a LOL. You still owe me for that fuel tank.

BTW what is the the title of this thread? Dennis I have something for you soon.

Sydewynder: Where in the world did you decide that I owe you
a fuel tank....granted that you are a relative newbie to nitro...
(what? 2 years or so?) If you can't troubleshoot something as
simple as a fuel pressure problem, maybe you should run electric?
J/K! If you get the time, come on out to Antioch (Delta RC Race-
way or Castle Hobbies (That is IF the vote passes for .12 open
class....votes to be counted 1/22) and check out the new
phenomenon in .12 nitro....12 open class where you race
any .12 engine with any body...we are running Kawahara/Frewer
VDS Lola bodies with modified .12 engines and floating rear body
mounts like the 1/8 scale .21 onroad cars....lots of fun and very
fast...we are running 11.8s on the current Antioch track versus
rubber sedan 13.4s....
Anyway, good to hear from you...pain in the neck though you
are!

I have seen both of your cars, WF's cars are trick, but Dansby's Mugen is the ultimate work of art. (You freak) An analogy would be Dansby's motor vs Dennis'.

Yep yep I'm a newbie. Actually I just started playing with these toy cars last month What's glow plug? How can I get my car to go 150 mph? Can I fit a 4 speed on my car? LOL

Oh Jonathan my car is like a tyco nothing like Dansby's.

Actually jd I asking about good ways to check for air leaks in all the possible places because an irratic idle and you butted in and said "Yep yep it's a bad tank just buy the tank and it'll go away or I'll buy the tank from you." Sure it did.

BTW I will bring this up everytime you give me a hard time LOL

I thought you bench race now? Coming out of retirement?
