Wow, an economy version for 1/8 off-road? How much more inexpensive can an 1/8 off-road engine be than the original .21 buggy engine?

speaking of which, I just noticed that ProjectZen just dropped the price of the .21 buggy engine to 149$! What's with the price reduction? Dino, is STS discontinuing this engine?

Dino we are here at the first day of ROAR seden regional/RD Logics Championship and you should know that Pikachu is now TQ running my STS D12X, modified by DiNO. There is one more day of qualifying but Peter was VERY FAST and it'll be hard to catch him.

The D21E is 3port and new molding head. Should be -25% of D21B. We will produce 3 different buggy engines. Just let people choice.

Default STS team engine

Hi Dino.tw

I just got my new STS team engine and I will break it in this weekend. Can you tell me where is this engine made from? Is it from Taiwan? or assembled in Taiwan and parts from other countries? 3Q!

Gordon

why you ask that? any wrong?
Remember to break in it slowly. The Team engine is a little different with our stock engine. The piston is very soft so WOT "may" not good to it.

Nothing wrong with this engine, I just want to know if the piston & sleeve can take WOT abuse. Maybe I'll change my breakin method with this engine then... Also, do I need to add 0.1mm shim for using 30% nitro on this engine? Thanks!
