    Yea, hard to say for sure with no proof. I am running 500k in the center, and 50k in front, 30k in rear. Going to see how that works first. May do thicker later on. I plan on ordering my engine this week, going to call obr one more time and discuss it with them.

    Got my mtxl in today!. Freggin pumped. On a side note I also wanted to mention to flip the clutch shoes. Run them backwards for even more bottom response. This is a popular mod in the hpi baja world I'm not sure alot know about.

    Anyone have experience with these pipes? All I know is they are on eBay and from China lol. But they are stainless steel and look to be nice quality.

    Snappier bottom end response. And the shoes will actually last longer.

    You need to measure both rim measurements on the mtxl wheels, if you have a 40 series wheel as well it helps keep the tire you will be cutting centered so it is perfectly round. Use the measurements and transfer it to the new tires and cut slow and very steady lol. Its a pain but worth it. I didn't take pics of anything.

    Well ordered this hog today, he said there is a 6 day lead time, so will likely be late next week I should have it hopefully.

    Screenshot_20180214-165022.png I didn't order a pipe yet, but will probably next week. Going with the big bore victory pipe. He said the jetpro is a good pipe but more for top end and I would lose a decent amount of torque and low end.

    Haha I have been there trying to video lol, nice looking rig there.

    I just ordered that intake as well off Detroit performance, got a decent deal I think. I have a bartalone clutch carrier now on my stock engine so I'll swap that over to the new one. Are you just running the prefilter on the pull start, Or what else are you running for a pre filter? Screenshot_20180214-201157.png
