They are a grin when they're brushless, Gresty's goes like stink but you can't beat the smell of 2 stroke lol

Pipe connected up

Some photos of the back half of the body mounted.
Can't show you all of it yet as the body needs some cutting to clear the front shock tower..

what tuned pipe are you thinking of getting?
when i put a tuned motor in the hormann it went better,but when i changed the pipe it really woke the engine .

Hi Mate..

Was seeing how this pipe went first and the have a look around for pipes..
I like the Fat power and the Victory pipes, but as far as I know they don't fit the HT3.

What pipe are you using and what is a popular pipe for them?
Quite hard for me in Australia to find info.

a oder tip heating ur body mount on the rear a little and belt them 5mm down.
now they will crack the body.
Thank you for the tip about the exhaust. I will definitely be looking into it.

don't quite mean what you mean by the above mate..
Could you show me a pic?

What other tips are there for this machine.?

Well
video camera charged......check
All nuts and bolts done up...check
Loctite used in crucial area...check
Servos setup and linkages moving freely....Check.

Took it down the road for a few easy passes to check some settings.
Started off away from me with wheels spinning.
Got 50 mtrs away and went to turn around, but car not going anywhere.

Thought to myself, what the hell is going on!
Walked up to the car and found a major build flaw..

Tyres Glued to Rims....UNCHECK!

Apparently the tyres will not stay on the rims unless glued...hahaha
I forgot to glue the tyres to the rims and they dismounted quick smart.

Well I have to wait for some more glue and will give it another go later.

Thanks for your help mate..

But as you can see if I turn the spur gear around the other way I have no room to move the pinion gear.
I cannot turn the pinion around because the clutch bell shaft is not long enough.
