Oh yeah, you can clearly see the filth. LOL. I just brush mine off with everything on then use the canned air blaster, nitro wash, then a lil wd40. I'm still leaning towards that Rody engine, but haven't made a final decision.

hark: go for the RB engine, it's legal, it's fast and it's probably one of the best engines to have....

I know, I've change my pullies like 3 or 4 times already, while the belts just once since december... Not because they where broken, but because they where a bit worn...

stock ones, last sunday the spring gave away and I lost the clutchweights so, I had to wait for the new one to arrive, what I did try was the 22t/29t CB, but I felt that the 28T worked better, need more power on the engine to try that 29t CB

I'll definately get the OS .18tz engine, I want to try that engine in the R-40 with my lola body on against the SERPENTS 235mm lol...
I posted before that most guys here are older folks, so the expertise is greater, but reflexes suck lol... maybe that's why I get to hang with them when they practice...

well I hope I could keep both engines, but a friend of mine loves my WASP engine for he's super nitro, the blue one you saw in the video... so if he buys it from me, i'll go ahead and order the other one...
