whats the deal with the HCX carb? another fad or does it really make a difference in tuning? all i see is the hs needle is now where a mid range needle would be... anyone try it yet?

i figured its "different"... what i want to know is if it really changes the inherent flaws with all slide carbs, slide slop, low end needle deflecting and messing with tune, lsn needle wear where it enters its "seat", sealing of the slide,, bla bla bla, ...my personal theory is the carb is the issue with nitro not being reliable, and i wish any company would sit down and really redesign the theory of fuel delivery, i dont think the hsn location has ever been a problem, its always down to to lsn setting/idle gap that has plagued me with flame outs from time to time

im not here to flame, and i apologize to reds if my text comes off like that...i own a te2 and LOVE it, and it tunes just fine, but i couldnt help thinking "oh great, another gimmick"

hi I have a R7 that ran almost 10 gallons already ( still have little pinch ) and I want to ask did you guys will try to buy the parts to rebuild it or just go get a new one ? but if I rebuild it what parts did I need ??? my R7 from brand new to now I never open or change anything, just put nitro and run.

At 10 gallons, you should also change your front and rear bearing, and that is another 70+ bucks. And your not shure how your crankpin is eiher.

I would assume a full rebuild would be 230-280 dollars. I would have bought a new one.

I live in the the U.S. there are two main companies here that pinch engines (the sleeve really) which restores the compression. I've sent 3 or 4 TE2's in to get pinched over time when they've worn out. They measure the parts inside the engine to see if they're with in Spec. Usually they need the pinch, bearings and con rod. They run like new after that. The crank is only good for one pinch, then its out of spec at the pin and not worth it pricewise to rebuild. RcRenew.com is one of them. Not sure if they do that where you are.

Yeah I check on the reds website if I get all the rebuilt parts it will cost more than $300, than I think I just run the engine until it die and than buy a new one. Thanks all that give me the recommendation.

I am using the HCX Carb since a couple weeks now and was surprised by the changes actually. I can have a lower and more stable idle, I feel the engine does react quicker when accelerating, and it definitly has more top end. I haven't seen any change in consumption though. I am not regretting that I got one...
