The reading was probably in KPH - mystery solved!!

But seriously, the local police kindly checked the speed of my ported NS S - 25 powered Savage the other day. Imagine my delight when he told me that the gun had registered 61mph........

When I get the STS, I reckon it will be more like 70mph, perhaps even 80 mph if the wind is blowing right.......

Joking aside, I reckon (with very few exceptions) the only time anyone's MT breaks the 50mph barrier is when it's in the boot (trunk) of the fullsize car traveling to the track!! In which case, mine has probably broken the 100mph barrier on occasion!

Let's not forget this is Dino's thread for the STS .28, it's a cracking little engine no matter what MT you bolt it into. Save the bragging rights for victories on the track.

Hey same here... seems like going to the track is always better early than going to the work to beat the punch card

Hi Jfc,

I use 18/49 gearing. So far, ive only gone 6 tanks with it so it's still pretty much on the rich side.

49/18 fits just fine.

yup, i know its coming in may, but im not sure if it we will able to access it using the shaft start since the hole is in the side, not in the corner (as in the stock roto backplate)

I'd imagine with the STS, investing in the 47tooth spur might be a good idea! I know guys who run 19/47 with lesser engines than the STS, so I'm assuming the sky is the limit as far as gearing is concerned. Taller gears may make it slightly easier to drive, too.

Can't wait til I get mine!

How are you getting on with yours JFC?
