Ryan struggled finishing long nitro races before he switched to OS/Maxima. His results have been exponentially better in my opinion. "Pro" drivers depend on contingency checks from big wins to pad...

Arron and AMR does true pro level engine work. He’s one of the few out there who truly knows what he’s doing. Money well spent.

There are only so many variables. Sounds like there could be a high spot where the crown gear mates to the differential body. Although it is a pain in the butt, you can empty the diff, turn the diff...

I'm not sure what you're asking? Novarossi engines are basically gone from US sources and even on eBay; your choices are limited to what your Italian shop has on hand. If you're bashing in a...

It's all personal preference. I like smoother power in buggy, so I'd run the AD2 in buggy (or B2101, which is my favorite), and the Type-R or a XZ-B Spec II (Tessmann 110% silver head) in truggy...

Jelin fared just fine. He was in the mix with Cavalieri, he beat Rivkin, battled with Drake...and he hasn't been racing much.

Kyosho doesn't have a large "pro" team right now. Given that CJ put...

2103 Type R -- 5 port, long stroke, 22e carb
Drake 2 - 3 port, semi-long stroke, 21j carb

Type R - potentially more total power though less smooth of a delivery. AD2 engine in my opinion is...

Nailed it. Heat guns produce superficial high head temps but they don’t heat soak the engine.

Drop the lipo powered heaters and get a AC powered one instead. You just don’t find experienced...

Bumping this to the top, b/c lots of local SoCal racers are using a 21J carb on the 2103 R and S to make tuning more consistent.

After using the 22e and 22d carbs, I'm not a fan personally. ...

“Kyosho push” is a new one and I’ve raced them for about 20yrs. Most racers feel that every Mugen pushed until the MBX8. If your kyosho pushes, it’s setup related.

Bingo.

And Roelof, I was referring to corrosion on the balls primarily. I’ve had great results with ceramic rear/steel fronts for a very long time but to each his own.

Yes I remember that, in fact I ran one on a buggy I converted into a truggy bc they didn’t make a large enough spur gear back then. And yes it was unreliable as hell, I even tried caged needle...
