have any of you guys seen this ad on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/STS-28-Pull-Star...QQcmdZViewItem

this is really upsets me as they took the pics off our website and used them in thier ebay ad. We dont mind that they say the sts.28 won the trophies as we want the world to know how great these motors are but to use our pics without asking seems pretty low.

It's a bit cheeky - using your pictures and then competing with you in the open market place/ebay etc!!

You gotta laugh really!!

They are awesome pics though and they really help get the right image across thus making the product easier to sell. They were probably assuming you'ld never notice, so didn't bother asking for your permission or drawing your attention unnecessarily.

But it appears that they've just been rumbled!

the dyno results are pretty impressive I like the fact that the sts has more power than the RB.28 motor for half the price. Our original race motor finally gave out after about 7 gals of fuel and being tortured at 400 degrees several times. The pin on the crank snapped off probably due to the piston getting loose in the sleeve and binding. Very nice motor we are more than happy with it's performance. It did get us 2 championship trophies this year.
We are now breaking in a new one and rebuilding the front end of the outlaw and will be using it sparingly till the end of March, We are planning on racing in the Silverstate challenge in Las Vegas against all the bigtime pros. Our hope is to make it to the Amain.

Dino you ought to take a buisness trip to Vegas for the race. Would be cool to meet you.

Hey ryan6682 what do you have your carb settings set to,and your temp,my L is about 4, H is little under 2,but is a little sluggish on low end,iv'e leaned,and richened low,but still sluggish on bottom end, lean high end but not less then 1 1/2 turns, wakes up good but temp is about 270,280, i live in maine it's about 50 temp outside.temp is just to high to keep it set to that

It sounds like your low is too rich and your high is to lean. try leaning your lowend needle 1/2 turn and then backing out your high end till it runs really rich and then slowly retuning the high needle till you get good power and then see if the temps dont drop and you have better bottom end power.
My carb settings are irrealavent as I live in a totally different climate and altitude than you. After you get your high set you may need to lean your low needle a little more for good take off transition.

OK, huys, now I'm confused. I probably will go on and take the plunge and get this STS 28, since for the money the performance supposedly can't be beat. I see they have a rotostart backplate for the engine, but I need to know if it will work on a Savage before I waste my money on it.
