just wondering if the dual steering servo would fit into a regular one, looks like its just a change of that top deck part and the extra servos

I just got back from the first time driving my truck on the track. I ended up braking my rear shock ends and my front bumper. I end up running to the hobby shop and picking up stock ends for a Revo ( aluminum ). I went back and ran the rest of the night. I am using the stock engine. I am at 250 deg. and still very rich. I tried other high end temps guns guys had and they where very close to what my cheep one read.Top end needle is set at 3 turns out and low end about 1/16 in past factory setting. I am very much impressed with this truck!!! After I put my new shock ends on I adjusted the screw in the rear arms. So I hope not to brake the shock ends again. Anyone using aluminum shock ends? Is that a bad idea? Any idea why my temps are so high for putting out major amounts of smoke? Guys at the track even said it sounded rich.

Keith

well I have mine running about there and I have had problems with the engine getting hot but these engine like to run hot.
Lets face it it's not that great of an engine so if it blows there are better ones out there..
Mine is also rich but I did notice that it runs better when its warmer out not like now...

Keith, sounds good, the aluminum shock ends are great, but in a really bad crash you may break a shaft, now that the ends are stronger it's a possibility.

If your at 250 and still "sounds rich" I would cut the body holes out in front of the engine in the windshield if it isn't. I also cut out the driver side of my truck window on our MGT/LST Illuzion body. You don't want to go much past 250-260 since your in the no buffer zone if it leans out during a run for any reason. What type of fuel are you running and what is the nitro and oil percentage and type?......................Jim

I need more advise guys. My batteries in my radio died today. So I need a new charger or something. My charger I have now only holds 2-AA and it takes 16 hours to charge them. Can I buy one big battery for the radio that comes in the RTR kit? I will using the stock radio for now. Or is there a way I can hook them up to this charger for a faster charge?

buy a charger that charges nimh batts, like the one you use to charge the 5 cell hump pack you should buy, then come up with a losi mini-t 4AA batt holder.. use it to charge 4 batts at a time.. , hb makes a 50$ charger thats a simple 1 button, ac/dc and will charge up to 7cells.. i use it for my hump packs and any other batts i can recharge with ease.

Keith, first, the Fuel your using is a good quality, castor blend, I think about 12%?, that will smoke a bit, even if your set too lean, so be careful of gauging by the smoke only. I use Maxys racing fuels, which are available about everywhere and they seem to have a combination that yeilds excellent power, lower temps and low varnish biuld up in the engine as well...I switched from Odonnel to Maxy two years ago and have never looked back since.

When I use rechargables in my transmitter I hook the alligator clips to the positive and negative of the cell holder. If your not sure which is which, look at the cells near the connections and you'll see which is which. You must be carefull of your voltage though, since it is possible to overheat and melt the cell holder if your charger lets the cells get too hot....I use a Novak Milennium pro to charge all my cells, even my Electric R/C stuff and my Fusion 6 cell batteries.................Jim

keith- i never even used the stock radio and recievr... i would suggest getting rid of it and getting a good Futaba (3PK), JR3 synthesized, Airtronics...and a good new receiver...just much more options and control and besides the stock radio is an AM..
AM seems only good if you ONLY run your truck by yourself in the middle of nowhere...otherwise interference is too risky...get a failsafe too! i use the OFNA...

the fail safe is the next thing on my list....
Also you can buy rechargeable bats from Wal Mart I hate WM any way or K-mart that come 4 to a pack and are Nimh cells.
I have 2 sets and love them
Duracel makes them and they hold up just fine...

I like,,,,,,,,,,, the only thing is put the front support on to support the front end like the rear makes a difference.
I have both revo rods on mine and pretty much all the flex is gone except for the center where there is still a little play.
Better than stock though.
