    Honestly for bashing if the weight wasn't massive, I would do it lol. If it means I can keep my engine in the perfect temp range the entire bashing session, then that's a huge win. All you have to do...

    Yeah it's hard to judge. Best thing with used engines is if you can see the engine running, or even if you can get an opportunity to drive and tune the car yourself, then you know what you are...

    Might get better responses in the TRX Engines forum btw! :)

    If your motor is gunked at all, I'd recommend a thorough clean out. It's relatively easy, free, and takes only a little time.

    This is an incredibly hard thing to evaluate without pictures or seeing it in person. There's a handful of things to check, but even if all those things are in good conditions, it may not be a good...

    The forward only conversion does not remove the OWB that engages for first gear, it cannot. The OWB engages when you hit the throttle in first gear, and then when second gear kicks in due to the...

    I stand corrected about my last assumption - looks like Traxxas does say the 15 runs at 300+ degrees. That to me sounds insane, but I guess if that's what the manufacturer says, keep leaning it! Lol....

    Firstly, where did you see 300 degrees? That's very high temperature, and ideally your engine should never be 300 degrees. 220 is literally a perfect temperature. Your engine should run between...

    They probably won't offer those motors. Too much thought for the average hobbyist of today imo.

    Sorry I don't know about the motor shaft length, but you can always dremel the shaft down a bit.

    On a side note, which fuel brands do you guys run other than Byron's?

    They don't really make cages for touring style cars, no. Learn to drive carefully lol. Or, you could gear it down for more acceleration, that way you could use 2nd gear more effectively.
