Default Fuel tank maybe?

I have been noticing some problems with my car. When i run my car for the first time for the day its fine. So i bring it in when it gets low on fuel shut it off clean any dirt/debree from pully's steering you know the basics. I fill the fuel tank, go to start the car and it won't start. I noticed if i put my finger over the stinger i can see fuel go to the motor. When i let my finger off the stinger the fuel immediately goes back into the fuel tank. It only does then when the car is already warmed up. Do you think the new fuel tank from K-Factory will fix this problem? Am i just filling my tank to full of gas? I mean after about a minute or 2 she might fire back up but sometimes i have to wait a little while and then come back and it will fire right up? Its weird. let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Mike

Would that cause the fuel to go back down the line to the tank after i take my finger off the stinger? Its like it doesn't want to get fuel? I notice when i put more fuel in the tank, it seems to be very hot inside the tank. Could it be like vapor lock from the colder fuel going into the warm tank?

Default Good pipe for rossi pixie .12 3 port

I bent the crap out of my header and i can't seem to get it to go back on right. If i bent the header any more i think it will crease. I already had to use plyers so i could get to at least go back on.

Which pipe will provide me with the over all best performance?

Thanks,
Mike

Default pipes

Mike, I use the Rex Roar legal pipe. Or the TM legal pipe is nice. I have seen also the new Conical exhaust from Mugen, but not to impressed with it, for the buck that is.

I was thinking about the TM pipe. Do you know how much it costs and where i can get it? Also will it work well with that sirio evo 2 motor that rcnut is selling? I'm thinking about selling some of my stuff to get that new sirio motor, or the novarossi ns5.

Fill your pipe up with water and freeze it. When the water expands it will bend the pipe back into shape. Just make sure you do not put too much water in it.


I run the tm pipe and the trinity pipe with my sirio evo IIs. I like both of them but the tm pipe is adjustable.

I actually passed two Kyosho v-one-rr evo around an s turn. After doing that twice, people started asking what I was driving. The Sirio Evo 2 in my opinion is one of the easiest engiens to tune. Hope everyone else did well.

The aluminum mounts have a flat side and a side with the circle sticking out. The manual has you putting the circle side into the bulkhead. Switch it around so the part that sticks out is facing the servo saver.

You should have let me know you wanted a KO radio, i Have two helios here You could have had it tomorrow.

BrooklynRC,
Like Mike already stated, turn around the alloy servo rail mounts so the extension faces the servo saver, not the bulkhead, then grind off the extension to allow the most travel. This allows for more adjustability on the rails. Ask anyone that saw my steering at Brooklyn Hobbies, they were like [email protected]#y [email protected]!t, what did you do.?? I told them the same thing I am telling you, then I took the pin without the ends on it, and installled it into a dremel, using the lowest setting, I ran the pin through the servo saver until it was smooth. Last, I use the alloy upper GPM saver arm.

Racing this weekend is up in the air. I think the buzz is Jackson RC in NJ. No one I know of is going to Edison. I am not sure if I can make this Sunday so far. I Hope to , I need the new gas tank first. I hope to see ya there. Come look for me, you cant miss me. Big, Bald, and Bad aaaaaaaaaaaaaaassss!!

Ran my g4 today, and i did some adjusting to the 2 speed. now It seems right before it's about to shift, the car has a slight jerk, just enough to scare me . Im not sure if its glitching, or is there something wrong w/ my 2 speed, has this happened to anyone before? Being my first one, dont really know how to troubleshoot

thanks for your reply guys.

rcnut
helios is a great radio, lil too pricey for me. i just sold my jr r-1 cause it was glitching. i was trying to spend as little money as posible. after debating between m8 and ko i decided to go with ko. it is a little bit cheaper. i got ex-1 mars r.

i wanted to come up to u in CT but i had too much drama with my car. if i got to jackson i will definately see you there. we got to represent for g4 out there

i can be your gearing. sometimes if you have big gap in # of teeth between your first and second gear you car will jerk while it shifts. if you run stock gearing im not sure what it can be.
