Tempting.... Honestly it didnt seem like he was that of a good drive, since he could've won. I'm tempting to get that since many of the ppl at the track are running illegals and its anything goes. The RB's are a bit pricey at the moment. Sirios not bad, but not the performance or so of the RB. Guess I may end up doing it.

That washer goes right onto the shaft before the 2nd spur gear housing. YOU MUST USE IT FOR IT TO FIT RIGHT! Otherwise, the spurs will be completely off.

I run with a kopropo marx control, on it you can play with the servos and use the max opening of the carburator, maybe you can set your control to do the same ultil you get a hang of it...
If i was to get that engine, I would definately stay away from oneways because of the difficulty to stop... hey do you know wa=hat the washer on the LW 2 speed is for??? cec the picture above...

Yeah I didn't see it for a while. Think it was too rich? I expected it to be a bit faster for something monsterous. Maybe the setup was wrong?

I just watched the video again and I must say that the serpent driver needed a little help on the turn after the straight he looked to be all over the place several times, looked like he was haveing some serious oversteer issues.

Yeah REGG151...
he's a great driver, he drives better than me, well usually he does, but I'll have to say that at the time it was his second time using that engine... Waht can I say... I meen he wrecked it about 2 times... and I mean broken pieces lol, but know he say that the set up is better... For his sake I hope so, otherwise he is going to get killed out there.
