    Mine are the new T-Maxxes and they have the 2.5 in them I've rebuilt both twice, I also have a RC10GT with 3 cvr.12 replacement motors ,using a .18wasp in it at this time also have a TC3,B4,T3 I really have learned a ton from having 6 RC's. Im considering the Revo that is if I can convince my girl friend HA HA This hobby can be alot of fun when things are going good or can really be nerve racking when things are breaking or not running right.

    270 is hot , try setting your h/s rich 1/8turn cw. Make sure that you dont have anything putting a drag on truck, brake hanging up, Idle to high slipper adjustment in other words check everthing over real good. Air leaks check heat sink bolts glow plug. are you using 20% nitro? try it if you are not. some times a truck well run hot the first tank let cool and try an other tank temp should go down, always make sure that the piston is at the bottom of the cylinder after you run it, that well save wear and tear on sleeve piston. gotta run be back Tues. Good luck . Red
