I ran it a few times tonight getting the low end dialed in...The thing will jump off the carboard box I have it running on, the torque is amazing. Sounds real throaty, the reeds make it rev so fast....waiting on my servo to show up and I'll be able to drive it. Also X-can should be here tomorrow...I'll see much loader it is with that on, its a bunch loader already with the stocker

I'm going to try to get to the lake on sunday.....miles of clean beaches to break in the motor, that will give me a good idea if the tires are going to live or not. The proline rubber (m2) is pretty soft for this heavy of a car. I think the old red compound would be stiff enough and hold its shape. Good thing is it only takes about 5 minutes on the lathe to cut them off if they dont work and try something else.

Thanks!

Nice Pics! Your baja looks sweet with the paddles. I would love to see some video of the 30.5 in action.

Keep us posted on how it goes, and how everything holds up.

another option would be adding another 8 paddles per tire and putting 10,000 oil in the diff....that would put twice as many in the sand and spread the load out. 10k would make sure both tires are working rather than one unloading

rcrcman,
Is the 30.5 a ported/tuned motor? Looks great by the way.

Can you link me to images of these two versions? Brad in our office is the one who deals with Jet-pro, so I'm not up to speed on this yet.

I'm a newby to this 2 stroke stuff see if I got this right. Do we have reads in our CY23s and with a new larger read kit it can work better. I was wondering if the stock carb would work on a 29 or this 30.5 version?
