Send a message via ICQ to sausage_link

first i would switch up to 15% nitro
it would lower the compression so it might give u some more power but the life of the engine will be shorted greatly

u want more power get a 2 speed
get a 2 speed and a pipe
if thats not enuf get a new engine

thanks for that
i have a os12 cv-r with o-donnell headsink i ,ll drop in see how she goe,s.
also i have a tamiya gtx with a 15cv-r plus m-speed turbo head i enjoy driving more than my vone-s because the gtx seems to be more controlable i think this is because my vone-s is not set up right it spins up to easly what would be a good set up eg camber ,caster ,toe in angles..
