    Nitro rs4-2 build

    When i went out of town i found this neat hpi belt driven nitro which i believe is an rs4-2. The chassis is in nice shape but I'm sure with how i drive it won't stay that way. I also got a few goodies such as a thunder tiger 12 and aluminum rims. The tires are worn but i'll keep them on there...

    Which on-road Nitro Engine?

    Hey Y'all! I've been looking into getting a kyosho inferno gt3 1/8th scale on road kit car and need an engine.

    What parts for a Hobao Hyper 10SC nitro conversion??

    I'm thinking of converting my electric Hobao Hyper 10sc to nitro. And I don't know what parts I need. I know that there is a nitro version of the Hyper 10sc so finding the parts to do it shouldn't be to hard. But I don't know which parts I need?? Can someone who knows please help me.

    I’ve tried big block but that ended up destroying other components so i figured modding the existing 3.3 engine, I’m forced to run on 16% fuel since anything higher requires license to purchase (which i ofc don’t have) Many have told about swapping to an os 11k carb, but are there any other...

    I know that the center diff kit also includes the foc conversion, but do I actually have to get rid of reverse if I want a center diff in my revo? Or I a can keep the reverse and run still run a center diff.

    traxxas 2.5, 2.5R and 3.3 horsepower?

    how much horsepower do these engines make? And what are the differences between 2.5 and 2.5R, some online articles say that the only difference is the blue cooling head but traxxas states that 2.5R makes 0.5 horse power more than the original 2.5, how come?

    Is anyone always worried that you're running lean all the time?

    Even though they have all the signs that its just right ( or slightly rich ). I need reassurance that I'm not the only one who thinks of this constantly
