yeah the pipe does hang down below the chassis..

I'm sure the doughnuts I did had nothing to do with the pipe getting scraped either......

Do you think it will effect performance to have the stinger above the pipe inlet , manifold. Im thinking this could cause some build-up of oil from the fuel...causing different chamber sizes and possibly effecting performance for the worse....

Iam very concerned with the pipe scraping. But I do have a mod that im thinking on trying and will share with you guys.

I got the idea from motocross / touring bikes that go into the woods and haul ass.

But until then, im keeping this one to myself till I can get some pictures and results.

OH BTW returned the hitec. Got the futaba S9451. Im so much happier now and used a 10 dollar credit I had, so I only paid 27 more for the digital futaba thats badass.

Over 100oz of torque and .10 second transit times. One thing I noticed though on the futaba box it says use only with NICD batteries?

Do you think NIMH is ok? Cause thats the type of pack I have. Im guessing they are saying dont use alkaline with these?

You should be happy with that servo. A lot of people use the s9550. Its lighter and has about the same numbers.

Not sure about the battery issue though. I don't think it really matters as long as the voltage is correct. They might be talking about not using Lipo type cells which would supply 7 volts.

Yeah the thing is sick. Hmm didnt know about the 9550. Darn, could have used you a few days ago. LOL.

I dont think I could exchange another servo at my lhs.

Also just tested it out a minute ago. Holy crap this thing is responsive. The best so far and by far blows away the hitec. It goes exactly with my hand...so much so its scary. I think its actually moving before I move my hand. Its got telepathic power I tell you.

LOL. Well now im set, im for sure running this car tommorrow. Will have videos. The day is set for me and everything else.

Yeah.

9550 is a very good servo. I run one in my R40 and my Pro 4 both.

Got a few small vids of the nitro puttin in the park. It was way to slippery and the car veered off the pathway into the dirt. There was some low thunder, few flashes, but mostly a lil bit of rain. The car got soaked, but ran. This engine runs MUCH better than my MT12. It's less finicky, idles all day, and doesn't stall out. I love it a lot.

Hey onnetz videos been sent.

Regg- THnx. Too bad it wasn't longer with more high speed action. I still didn't lean the car out for its maximum power and its already beating the MT12 all around.
