hey i know people who have put 4 stroke petrol in a 2 stroke.
he he he, wasnt pretty for them


funny from my point of view.


also seen the remains of a generator, some one tried to refill it when it was still hot, spilt petrol on exhaust, looks like melted plastic in a metal frame.

Finally got my car out on the track today, was great untill a small hit into the wall stripped my steering servo at least I got to wipe the floor with the GV for a little while

Anyway anyone recommend a decent servo, preferably metal geared and ball bearing, not too worried bout huge speed/torque as I didnt have a problem with the standard one till it broke. Also preferably under $100 if possible



Cheers, Phil

For about $6 you can buy a gear set for your old servo

The pinions are for electrics. none of the shafts will fit but you could use the shocks

anyone know the part no for the ball bearings i need for the belt tensioner on the V1S?

also, does it matter if you have a long fuel line from the fuel tank to the carb?
same goes for the fuel line from the fuel tank to the tune pipe?

because i just want to cut mine short so its not messy, or is it a bad idea?

If the bearings are 5x10mm then the part number is DTXC1535, but any brand of 5x10mm bearings would do..

There is a theory that by using a longer fuel line you'll get more run time... I can't see myself getting any more than 10 seconds . It also S-L-I-G-H-T-L-Y lowers the fuel pressure because the fuel has to travel further. I got sucked into making my fuel line longer, but it only caused fuel delivery problems, I make mine as short as possible (within reason) now.

The pressure line can affect your engine's tuning... but it's sorta complicated . Basically, the shorter the pressure line, the more fuel pressure there is and it causes a richer setting and vice versa . It doesn't have as much of an effect as changing the needle settings though.
