Yea you're better off getting something like the Duratrax Onyx 225 than bothering with the Traxxas EZ chargers and DC to AC adapters. The 225 will charge virtually any battery you need charged, and...

HPI Outlaw .18SS

I ran across one of these for a pretty low price the other day, and I'm considering getting it for another option in my old school T Maxx.

Anyways, I'm having a hard time finding any info on it....

Exactly, I always experiment with fuel and plugs in new engines to see what runs best. I usually don't mess with shims unless I have to. All the engines I've ever ran said in the manuals 33%-36%...

Don't forget about the HPI Savage! In nitro or electric they prove to be pretty durable in stock form. I also Like The Kyosho Mad Force trucks a lot, I have a nitro Kruiser 2.0. It's very fun to...

With the trans issue it sounds like you blew the primary gear in there. I have completely shredded those on my T Maxx before. Sometimes they will lose a few teeth and do exactly as you described.

Hmmm, that would be an interesting test. The only real noise difference I've noticed is when comparing side exhaust and rear exhaust engines. A TRX 2.5R for example is far louder than a TRX Pro .15...

Oh yes the performance and charging is way better with any lithium based battery! I only have 2-4 packs per car these days, I remember having about 10-12 NiCD/NiMH packs for my Stampede back in the...

Yea those racing quads are really cool, but kind of hard to watch. My cousin built one and was running it a few weeks ago at a family event. Really cool looking thing, when you can actually see it...

Huh Ya know I don't think the older ones did have 2 of them, but I can't remember. I'll have to dig my old 2.5R out and have a look at it. IIRC the issue I had was due to the carb body where it...

Ouch! That must have been one hell of a landing indeed. That is a pretty big jump though so I guess no blaming the truck:D I'd have a hard time not replacing it with an aluminum axle after that. The...

Hmmm that's interesting, an R & D facility in the US too. Maybe they will become Traxxas version 2.0. They can definitely take some notes on parts support from Traxxas anyways. If not for the Savage...

I've heard of that mod before when the 2.5 was still a fairly new engine. It did help quite a bit from the ones I saw run. The only down side is the cost of OS carbs. They don't make the 10D any more...

Who was it who bought out HPI? I can't seem to find this info and the LHS guys weren't sure either.

So true, it's quite a task these days to figure out who makes a certain engine without tearing it down and comparing it to other suspect engines.

If the engine is a bad egg, one could always...

Ah yes I see that now, must have been outdated when I looked at it, it was about $550 for the nitro one then. $490 is perfectly acceptable in my books:D

I'll keep a lookout for these at the LHS...

Awesome man! Post some pics of it installed, it looks like a cool motor.

Yea I'm not a huge fan of Proline's rims either. I really like the RPM 2.2 Revolver rims. Now if I could find good 2.2...

Same here with my LRP, it doesn't idle the best but it is a tad rich too. The LRP gave me fits when I first got it, took some time to get it fully richened out from the lean factory setting, but it...

If you bash it hard through 2+ quarts, non stop, and in 90+ degree weather you still can as the heat slowly rises in the engine over time. If it's 320+ degrees it may sound and perform great, but it...

I run 2S LiFe and 6S NiMH only in my mini Revo, but I run old school 540 brushed mod and spec (15-19 turn) racing motors in it so I'm not too experienced with small scale brushless motors. I would be...

I have never seen it in person, but I'd suspect it is. Most of Proline's 1/8 MT bodies are about the same thickness. That one would look killer on a T Maxx!
