In an attempt to get more HP for minimum $. I opted for an ESP Race Ported head to mount on the existing ESP/DDM 34cc.
Zero deposits after a few gallons of VIP 94 w/ Amsoil Dominator. Think I'll stick with this combo. (y)


The kit comes with a new piston, but I decided to just use the current one for now as it seems in perfect condition.



All set, just need 24 hours for the sealant to set and we'll see if this thing starts. :p



Also picked up some RCMAX Beadlocks and green lugnuts for some bling

Just about have the new head broken in. Ported head gives this thing much more low-end punch. Going to need a more aggressive (but not enough to rip t rip up the local park's turf and get banned lol) tread as this thing spins the tires like crazy.

Few minor upgrades, Full Force skid plate.



Full Force high flow fuel lines. These are key as without them my fuel line was so close to the exhaust it melted them.



The T90 has been working well for the past four thirty-minute runs. Knock on wood it stays that way. If it loosens again I'll do what @crucialRC did and install a longer bolt.
