    Anybody with a slide carb? I need to get a conversion kit!

    I realized that with all the coupons im adding up on Towerhobbies, I might as well get the slide carb. But, who makes a linkage conversion from rotary to slide carbs?

    Thanks!

    When I get my new engine it will have a slide carb, and I will pm you if that is ok, and ask about the details on how to put in into service.

    Thanks for the pics,

    Stan.

    All I did was purchase this Ofna Servo Linkage Kit , and turn the throttle servo around. If you have a high torque servo I wouldn't recommend using the HPI kit. You'll pull the rod right out of the ball cup
    "Nitro" It does a body good!

    Here is the Link to the info

    http://www.geocities.com/ericperez_2...ec.html#engine upgrade


    The site kept on growing so I had to re-arrange all the info. The Nitro 4-TEC articles are in the Setup section. Click on the Traxxas Nitro 4-TEC and select the article that you want read.

    Hope this helps

    So does this kit contain EVERYTHING for the slide carb linkage? Also, i have a Hobbico standard servo for throttle, will i need a different servo horn than the one included in this pack?

    Thanks Eric for your great website, and thank you Nitro Boost for your reply!
