Go to the web site listed below and download the Hudy Set-up Book. It will explain how to measure and make all the adjustments.

Some go as far as taking the motor completely apart and submerging the internals in motor oil.

I think thats kinda far beyond needed. If anything make sure the gas-tank is completely empty - run it on the starter box with the glow-ignitor attached to run out any extra fuel after your run.

Then run some after-run oil through it and leave the glow-plug off so air can get in there....should be good. Also taking the pipe off would have around the same effect , allowing the moisture to leave....

Well, first congrats on the newborn!

If I need to put the motor aside for prolong duration and this is just me... I take the motor apart, clean and oil everything that needs to be oiled, and put every seperate part in its own small ziplog bags.

Congrats! Is this your first one? If so, I wouldn't be so quick to put the engine away.

I have tried the Kyosho tires and they are pretty good. I compared them to Jaco's and found the Jaco's to be a little better in the traction department but the Kyosho wheels are more durable. If you switch your rear universals (VSW007) to use 0 offset wheels I would recommend trying the Serpent/Jaco tires. They provide excellent traction and durability.

I do think that the Kyosho wheels are the best looking wheels out there but they are also among the most expensive.

Congrats on the child. For the engine storage, I do as Robert and Dom and take it apart, clean it, lube it up and put it away. I usually put it back together before I store it but I do put it in a zip-lock bag and cover the carb and exhaust.

Apparently "those people" are not Serpent USA. I am curious who is saying that. I race with Robert some and he has not mentioned anything to me about this.

Thanks. The hobbyshop I work for stopped ordering from serpent years ago since nitro onroad kinda died in Memphis but has made a huge come back in the last year or two. Only cars that are run competatively are NTC3 and V1RRR. I'll probably run the Kyosho wheels and tires for now till Great Planes starts delivering GRP products and then try the serpent wheels.

Hi Guys,

How often are you replacing your 2nd shoe set?
