I like o'donnell plugs.

my place at Sabah East Malaysia, GMT+8, Tropical Island... ppl been saying im running my engine hot as in 130-140C ... in fact thats the normal, racing temp and it performs well. anything lower, will only hinder the performance.
Thats why, ppl not using STS engine always says the engine is not good.actually they dont know whats the right operating temp. I salute STS. Well done.

Who's running the sts .28 on a 1/8 scale buggy??? I just took it out of my savage and dropped it on my inferno 7.5 we'll see how it handles tomorrow at the track.

I have it on my TTR-S3, not tuned yet, I still need to lean it, a lot of tourque, but top-end.... I need a top end pipe

just make sure it fit your engine mount, else you have to grind the mount a little like I did with my OLD MBX-5

I've been running this motor for about 2 gallons now. I am very impressed with it so far.

I'm with jfc_tech on the motor temp issue. I've been running mine at the average temp of 110C and it's not where as quick as my friend's who is running his at about 140C...man that thing screamed!!!

I am thinking about switching to the STS green head .21 once I am done with this .28. My CRT is gonna flyyyyyyyyyyy.

i wish i have the CRT to test it. no lhs selling it.

i seldom race my engine using temp gauge to tune it. i ever gone 145C(my pitboy said so...without my knowledge) on my savage. that was like 38-40C outside temp..damn one hot final. managed to stay the whole 4omins race.end up 3rd
