    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. Just for some background I'm new to nitro but not new to rc cars, and am used to off road cars, so this isn't only my first nitro but also my first on road car. I've got it narrowed down...

    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.

    Can I buy a cheap nitro car that will be fun?

    I don’t know the first thing about nitro. As you can see on my profile somewhere, I have a few electric rcs but nothing other than that. I love all kinds of motors but I want a dose of noise from an engine, is there a cheap nitro car (doesn’t have to be awesome) that is reliable? If so what...

    Want to give my revo more power… but how?

    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...

    Revo 3.3 center diff

    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?

    I dont get it... (about nitro tuning, everyone is welcome! i need to know more!)

    Q1: What does LSN do, does it effects low rpm or low throttle? if i blip the gas ones (from zero to wide-open quickly, then immediately releasing the trigger) is it HSN or LSN? Q2: does HSN affects idle? Q3: the relation between LSN and idle crew, i can affect idle by either leaning the LSN or...

    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

    HPI electric starters

    So I have brought a new electric starter rod and back plate for an electric drill, the wording is a bit missleading as I thought it was reffering to a hand drill and not the electric starter. I can however fit it to my hand drill, question is: does anybody know the rpm on the electric starters...
