What's up fellas. Been a busy man this year with all the BS going on just like the rest of you. I feel very lucky to have this hobby to fall back on when otherwise bodem would be the case. Anyways. I have a Bartalone reedcase 45cc modified Rovan engine installed in the Losi MTXL. Check it out. Should be pretty fun. I had an OBR signature series g340 in there prior. Check it out!! 20201226_150614.jpg

Any updates on this?
What's up man. I had to wire in a new power switch. Then was testing the servos. And one of the steering servos gave up and fried lol. It was tired a couple years old. Glad it happened on the stand not out in the field using it. So I have been waiting for Detroit Performance RC to deliver two Hercules for in it. Got them now. Gonna install and drive the truck. Hopefully this weekend. Check this out

Make sure to post a vid (y) (y)
Will do.
I had a sparkplug to piston clearance issue during break in. It looks like the piston nipped the sparkplug just a little bit. Here are two pictures. One showing the sparkplug gap being minimal and the other down in the sparkplug hole in the head and the top of the piston. Kinda frustrating! Thoughts?

It looks like the squish wasn't set right. I wouldn't run itnlike that even if you shimmed the plug, at max rpm I bet it will still hit .Contact Bartolone, that ain't right 😬
I tried contacting Bartalone to no avail. Rovan where I bought it said contract Bartalone. Lol ya no crap. And yes I bet it needs a thicker head gasket. I am about to ship it back to Rovan for refund. I don't want to wait too long before I get an answer.
