Fired up the old Nitro Sport this morning. After a quick carb clean it ran like new!

Burned another quart today. Was awesome weather first warm day we’ve had in idaho so far. I might charge the receiver pack and go back out this evening. The day started out with a strange noise and I thought my rear diff was blown, tore it all down and it was fine, my clutch bell to spur gear mesh was all jacked up.. lol still fun

Guess I’m the only one burning nitro another quart down. Had the front diff out today and back in. And put a pretty good ding in my pipe hitting a frisbee golf pole mid air. Up too about 1.5 gallons so far

Fired up the HSP Hotrod this morning. Had been sitting in the closet for a while. Started right up and ran fantastic!! Gotta love Nitro 😎

looks sick!!! Out of my 4 nitro's, only the "hpi f4.6 trophy truggy" is currently working😂. Problem is that it is very thirsty and i'm almost out of nitro🤦. Today i've been having problems with my FG, but it's getting closer and closer! I'm still waiting on a great nitro fuel deal👍

Ran the HSP 1/16 scale HSP Kingliness this morning.(Same as Exceed Thunderfire) These small ones can be a bit more picky about carb adjustments, etc so they are more of a challenge to get running. Crazy fun. Love the smell of Nitro in the morning 😂

After replacing the burst b032 and b085 bearings, I finally drove the savage original f4.6 today for a half quart today. I'm still burning the last drops of nitro fuel I've left😂. It has been 2 to 3 months since this engine ran. Today, it started on the 3rd pull, did not shut off any time, and tune was already nearly perfect! Only had to lean the HSN 1/4th turn.

Edit: it's geared too slow for speedruns. Clutchbell 14T, spur 50T
