Hi Twist, I've heard of the Peach Bowl, think it closed, I started racing in the mid 90's after flying planes for 15 years.

I race at the Sugarbowl,www.sugarbowlrc.com awesome playground asphalt track! I got my STS from a guy here that orders lots of stuff from CRC, and get them cheap. I can prolly get one for you.....email me if interested.

There's another on road track that's going to be built north of Atlanta early this year, but its going to be a little smaller than the 'Bowl's....

I got the STS 3 port turbo when it first came out this past summer, it's run great right out of the box. I did a std. break-in, like any other engine. Now it ripps anything else on track. I had it come in after a few laps once, and the temp. was 450 degrees, after readjusting, it ran the rest of the day. I ordered a cylinder and piston, just in case. But the next weekend it ran fine and haven't put the Piston, sleeve , AND con rod that came in the next week. Piston & sleeve(and con rod) cost me $34.00.

I'll ck the STS motors out then, thanks

Bummer about the Peach Bowl, really nice track. I remember the Sugar Bowl. Seems times have changed for it as well. Best I remember it was a HUGE dirl oval. Never raced there but went by there a couple of times. Also, there used to be an indoor off-road track in Cummings that was ok.
Thanks for the input, Rick

Default .12 engine

I have the rtr ntc3 and I'm my way to my 4th tank already, what pull start .12 engine can you recommend that is long lasting and would give top speed and power. I'm not racing but I'm the speed freak thrill seeker who bash on parking lots. No budget for a strater box yet that's why I'm looking for a pull start engine.

Hi guys, I posted a deal on a MT-12 with a few FT options on the "For Sale" forum. I'm going to run my JP next season so I won't be needing it. Thanks.

just to let you guys know the k-fctory tank is cool and well worth the money! if you are using the old stock tank (one with dodgy inlet) you are really losing out! i have seen a big differance in run time with this tank and well it just looks cool! get one! oh heres a crappy lil pic of my car

With the K-Factory fuel tank or even the new Associated tank, do you still have to coil the fuel line up several times or can you run a straight hose from the pipe to the tank?

That's just what I want to know...I ran the car with the new tank, but with the extra fuel line, too. I hope to get to run the car this weekend without all the extra fuel line on the pressure side.

Has anyone seen the Dynamite rear exhaust? I just received the header part no. DYN 6624 (got it from Horizon)...it'll go with a standard TC muffler, so you may do away with the stock Assoc exhaust... I'll try that this weekend too, weather permitting.

You don't coil the tube because of the tank. You coil the tube because it provides:
  • more volume to even out exhaust pulses
  • more length to prevent fuel draining out if you are on your lid
It's a good idea to always have 8" or so coiled up. . .
