    I recently picked up a used thunder tiger mirage v-spec in pretty good condition. How many of the parts are interchangeable with the EB-4? I would like to upgrade some of the parts.
    Thanks

    Well it seems as though I cannot give an answer to my own question.
    For the entire life of my hpi nitro mt, the brake has refused to stop my truck well at all. If ANYONE has ANY tips on increasing my trucks ability to stop please share your knowledge. I already have the fiber brake disk. I was actually looking for more of a different setup, more like steel or aluminum disk(s) with actual brake "pads".
    Any help is GREATLY APPRECIATED. much thanks

    I have a RC10 GT and the engine has had this problem for a while, but im just now getting around to fixing it. Whenever I start it up (using a pull start) as soon as it starts the engine revs to the point where it is smoking within 3 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle speeds and the fuel mixture screws. I checked the carb as well. Any ideas as to how to fix this problem or at least what the problem is?

    Hi all,

    First of all I would like to say that I am a newbie to the rc world and have always had an interest in it.

    I decided to take the plunge and purchase an rc model. I did some research and was very impressed with the HPI Savage and was even more impressed when I found out that it came in a kit form. I prefered a kit so I could not only build it to my preferred specs but also learn about the ins and outs of rc modelling.

    I recently built my HPI Savage SS and have thourougly enjoyed building it, maintaining it and of course playing with it.

    The purpose of this post is to ask what is the best route to take when adding the hop up parts. What would be the best place to start? I personally would like some more grunt but I also understand that handling is just as important.

    Any comments on the best way to increase performance, either speed or handling would be appreciated.

    Apologies for the long and no doubt boring post.

    they are not worth it. What it does, from what I understand it a hole is drilled into the nitro engine block and it collects cold air and it some way shape or form put back into the fuel mixture. I don't think this makes a big enuf differen't to drill a hole in your engine block but its up to you. Try searching for it on yahoo.

    Hi i'm having problems starting my orian .26 engine for my savage . the problem is after about 1 hour sorting out the bottom end and top end its starts for about 5 minutes , then it stops and will not start for the rest of the day which is quite frustrating . I have taken it back to the shop where I brough it and told him the problem , all he does is start it the once after playing with the screws about 20 minutes , runs it for about 1 minute and say its fine just leave them as they are now. which as always when I get it home never starts. ( think he just wants to sell and that be the end of it ). Its not that I live close to the shop ( 5 miles and I dont drive ). The engine has only done 2 tanks so I have not even had the chance to open her up . to be honest the car just been standing there for 2 months as I have got that annoyed with it . But I have spent so much money on her I just want to be able to enjoy racing about ( crashing )

    Here hoping you can help .

    p.s if you could send any info you have or you think may help me in my dream of being able to fix things my self to : anthony_richardson@hotmail.co.uk it would be received with open arms .

    cheers

    Ant

    Hi everyone, I just bought a new piston and sleeve, and I want to install it myself. However I can't seem to figure out how to get the old one out. I have the engine stripped down to just the crankcase/crankshaft and the gears on the crankshaft. I have a t-maxx 2.5. If anyone knows how to take it out it would really help.

    Thanks

    I had a old article from a rccaraction and they were showing how to Rebuilt a nitro engine. IF I REMEMBER correctly they took a zip tie and put it into the exhaust port and threw the sleeve(of course the piston has to be at the bottom) And useing the flywheel turn the engine. With the Zip tie in between the sleeve and the piston putting pressure this will push the sleeve up and then you will be able to pull the sleeve out. After it is out make sure when you put the new sleeve in that the ports are where they need to be I.e. Exhaust port. I belive Traxxas sending a manual on how to rebuilt there engine's, I know they did when I bought my old .15 rustler. Also Traxxas has a trade in, where you can get a new engine for alot less then a brand new one.
