    Sport 40 pipe length

    Thanks Tim, you're right .380 is the I.D. of the stinger. I shimmed it down with some brass tube. I'll try your suggestion for the strut, it should help settle it down a little.

    Sport 40 pipe length

    I'm still fast with an ops disk, a little "tlc" add an old ops.67 pipe with the stinger at .280. Finish off with a P.T SP 40 and it will turn a 450 all day. Try a 52 x 64 reduced and hold on. This is a very reliable set up and only lets me down when I forget to fill the tank.

    New Picco 45

    I was at the pond also when Gary's motor failed. I watched these Guy's flowing the motor and running it a little rich. In my opinion, they were doing a proper break-in. These guy's have a lot of experience with nitro motors and are well respected in our club and our district (1 IMPBA). This was a rod failure . I hope there is not a problem with these new motors and maybe someone should step up and make things right

  12. Hi Bob Are the ops motors still for sale, and what condition are they in? Don
