Has anyone tried running Traxxas Sprot Traxx tires on their LSP?
I don't bow ties would be good choice for me down here cause of the coral hard surfaces.

I got my truck today. So I am starting the break in cycle. Temp got up to about 255 deg so I shut it down. Is it ok for a new engine to get that hot? How hot should I let it get before I shut it off. That is with it being about 20 deg outside.

Break in

I assume you are breaking in the HB 26. I had to richen mine up a 1/4 turn on the bottom, and it would reach 210. Also remember to roll your crank to the bottom of the stroke whenever you shut it down.

My front shafts seem to be good too...
Thats cool when can I get that steering arm ?????
I would like to do that mod but I am not sure if I am going to race sunday or not it's supposed to be pretty damn cold so it's up in the air...
Just make sure that you don't go over 270 on this engine it does not like that..

I was using a Duratrax flashpoint to check my temps. Truck looks to be rich but still hot with this guage. It is smoking good with a lot of oil comming out at idle. How do I tell when your crank is at the bottom of the stroke? I cant tell any difference in tention when turning it. And for the stop screws in the arms. Our we talking about the small screw with the allen head on the inside of the arm? If so how far do you run the screw though the bottom of the arm?

Is the hotbodies .26 the same engine as the savage? I'm thinking that I can do the same mod as the savage engine mod.

its punched out vs a savage.. but the p&s will fit the savage.. so yea is say you can..

there is a bag with 4 long set screws, aka allen heds inside the threaded body, i say stick them intot he arm and screw in untill the arm sits alittle higher then the lowest point the arms rest at..

mb i also got a extra front hing pin brace.. incase you did not have one.. i got like under 6$ in the 2 items but i also got spares for the tool/pit box on top of that for others with these truggies so they just gotta see me for them.. i actually bought 5 cross braces and 3 front braces.. i left 1 of each on the wall at the LHS and took the rest, and mike got his one of each.. i have a silver one showing up in the mail today also.. mike ordered it, but incause you want silver over purple you have that option also.. he wants purple... if your up for a road trip let me know.. else i can mail to ya..

depending on the settings on the duratrash temp gun, you can read 50+ over what it actually is pretty easily.. trust the smoke, oil and if you can tough the head with bare hand test.. you should be able to touch the head for 2-5 sec before it gets too hot to hold..

Piston at bottom

Keith-OH - take glo plug out. I break one end off a paper Qtip and put that end into the cyl on top the piston. Rotate flywheel until you see Qtip at its lowest point. I put a mark (sharpie) on the flywheel where you can see it. When you want piston at bottom, rotate flywheel to where you can see your mark.

Just picked up my LSP yesterday and I am very impressed to say the least. I've been running a Lightning Pro buggy for two seasons now and decided to retire my 21 maxx finally. One of the guys that I race with saw my truck and immediately ordered one for himself. I must have a second run truck because I don't have the bottoming out problem with the front diff cups that was mentioned earlier in the thread. Quick question, will the kyosho draglink from the 7.5 buggy fit, I found a place that has the hardcore racing titanium draglinks on clearance.
Thinking about trying one of the new peak diablo 28 engines for the race season, anybody have one or heard anything about em?

HOT OFF HBs webpages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Lightning GT is based off the reliable Lightning series and shares a lot of the same features


With nearly 3 inches of ground clearance, there is not much that can slow this beast down


Even with it's enormous ground clearance, the Lightning GT is able to maintain a relativly low center of gravity due to the Lightning series it is based off of.


The pipe is specially designed to maintain the same volume but fit within the realistic body design
************i like this idea, but i have to wonder how it performs


Dual inline steering servos provide plenty of high torque to the oversized wheels and tires
***************look at the brace set up.. this is how i plan to build my front extra support.


******************now does this have a 2 speed???????????

im weary of that GT muffler... it looks like the old ones they used to use on vintage Kyosho nitro buggys... and only the tinyest amount of exhaust would release.
hey CR...how do i attach pics? its not working!
