    i have to disagree on u this time mpracing on the ofna .21 8 port turbo because the motoe is just like an other motor thr turbo on that motor really isnt 1 its just a tightened spot on the top of the sleeve for more compression and the only reason they have 8 ports is brcause for better furl efficiantcy but when i seen the motor run its performance was awful it was sluglish bogged down like crazy and soon the compression when bad too. u know what im talking about MPRACING lol, na just get an o.s. engine i dont no but i can tell u this they have awsome motors and warentys with no questions asked

    waz,

    That place from modelsportuk I think, go to the modified motors and buy the Trinity P94 10 Triple, that is your best motor, but wait, what is this for? And did you want the best electric or nitro, well above is electric, I will further soon to see what lies ahead.

    Do you know where I can find a cad drawing of the chassis for the rc10gt. I am doing a project at school and this would really help.

    Hopefully you can help me with a question in regard to charging nicd batteries. I just bought two 7 cell flat batteries they are produced by Dura-Trax with Sanyo cells and both are 2400's, these will be used to power my electric R/C boat. my charger is a Pro-Tech that i bought about 10 years ago to use for my R/C cars. The charger works great, always has but for the life of me i don't know if it's a peak charger or whatever. It's says 1 amp on it and is able to quick charge (15 minute timer) and trickle charge. I charge my car batteries which are 1200's for 15 mins when quick charging, or for 14-16 hrs when trickle charging. My new 2400's came with no charging instructions at all and I'm lost as to how long to charge them for with my charger. The charger does have a switch for either 6 or 7 cells and obviously I will switch when necessary. Thx.

    Well maxpf56,

    I would be safe and spend the extra money and get a peak charger or at least a good one with trickle charge. Then charge them overnight with the new charger so the batteries will begin a memory of a full charge. But after each run you should discharge them so they dont build up a memory of not going through a full charge. Try this and tell me how it works out!

    MPRACING, I was pbobably confusing you but my charger is capable of trickle charging nicd batteries, which is what I intend to do. If by chance my charger is not a "peak" charger, exactly what type would it be and whats the difference between the two? Thx.

    Im geting back into rc but can't decide on a truck. Im thinking about a Ofna Pirate 10 RT, HPI RS4 MT, or a Duratrax Overdrive ST. I have also been thinking about maby 2WD or a buggy. For the buggyies I was thinking about a Ofna Ultra LX PRO or a Ofna 9.5 MBX and for 2WD trucks the RC10GT. My mind is up in the air some imput from you guys will help. Another thing there are not alot of tracks near by so it would be used for backyard bashing. But right now I am trying to talk my dad into leting me bild a desent size track in my back yard.

    Thank you
