Default STS .28 Savage Roto start

I've had my STS .28 in my Savage a couple of weeks now and I'm very pleased with it, it has certainly got more power than my HPI K46 engine.

A couple of things worth mentioning, I ran the first few tanks of fuel through it with it mounted on my bench, started by the roto start I brought for it at the same time, the small gear inside broke up even though I had the glow plug loose every time I started it, but the good thing was the small gear is the same as the HPI roto start I used on my K46 so I simply put this in the STS roto start back plate and it worked great.

One of the head bolts came loose during the first tank of fuel but luckily I noticed this before the engine had got hot but worth checking before you run yours for the first time.

The roto start will not work in a Savage truck, the HPI version has the shaft input in the top left corner of the back plate for a reason, to miss the rear diff cross member. I am using the pull start that came with the STS engine and it is working fine, seems to be stronger than my org HPI version was.

All in all very pleased with the way this engine performs.

Well, what can I say!!!?!!

What a superb performance. Good driving, good speed, good air, awesome setup thus the nice handling.

I've seen some impressive MT's - your's is definitely up there with the best of them.

Nice one!

Racernine (Glen) does all the setup to the truck, we use a shorter chassis than a standard mammoth to get better handling in the turns, also we feel the 8 shock setup that comes on the mammoth is much better than the 4 shock setup on other truggies. We can and have blown a shock and still finished races while when other loose a shock they are done. If you go to our site www.racernine.com and follow the outlaw links you can see how this truck is put together almost step by step

I sure wish we had a big STS black and orange sticker to put on the hood.

The block on the marine 28 is shown black on the STS website.
Are they all going to be black now?

Hi, I recently purchased an STS .28 and it was all black as well. I think it looks better too.

Just got in some new .28 motors and now they are silver again with black cooling head only the cooling head looks a bit different with a .28m written on it and seems to be a bit bigger.
Is this how they are going to be from now on or will the color of the block change to black again.
Dino. share some info on this if you can.

Now you get it's final version. We have ever produced 400pcs black crankcase. Now they are sold out already. For saving cost we changed back to silver color. We have to keep the cost lower,let more people can enjoy the R/C.
