    Clutch advise

    Yeah, I would get the TR v2 clutch system. I installed it a few weeks back on my 5b and wish I had done so when I first got the rc car kit.

    Air bubbles on both fuel line

    Sounds to me like the tune is off. Nearly every new carb or engine I've had has always needed to be retuned out of the box. They set the needles at the factory according to the conditions there (temperature, altitude, humidity etc). If you live at a different altitude and/or climate to the...

    5b power loss with tuned pipe

    Hey guys, I fitted a JetPro v3 tuned pipe without muffler to my 5b. Once warmed up its insanely loud and fast when it "hits the pipe" so to speak. Then after about the second pass down the field it loses ALL of its mid to top end power. So much so that it feels like a smaller engine with stock...
