Felix did you get a 367 for Truggy applications ? I thought you were ordering a C6 ? I really hope you idnt order a 367 for Truggy as its a specialized buggy mill with a very soft bottom end.....Everyone recopmends against running the 367 in truggy and says the C6 is the one to go with, the 367 is killer in buggy but very subdued in truggy

Ya i really dont think a 28 is needed in the XT8 the drivetrain is so smooth and rolls so easy...

LHS says it will most likely be in tomorrow...

couldn't resist the price buddy!... he is adding 20 filters with it.

never know when you might need a backup right? :D my buddy wants the pipe set so it works out well for the price i paid.

it should be here today bud! ..i was thinking of having it done up but these mills don't really need anything. we'll see maybe after breakin and tuning i might give it a slight mild job and compare the difference.

the Jammin mill with the right pipe can be a very strong performer.. I think its a cousin to the P7 engine...

the P7 series of engines may not be as smooth and refined as the RB, but they do make more HP and TQ.... according to the dyno results the Picco's are among the strongest of the .21's........ My own P7 EVO2 is flat out ballistic, and is seriously the most potent .21 i have ever seen....my only complaint is the motor doesn't seem to be that good on fuel...

And the dam carbs can stick !!!!! Dam Picco carb wanting to stick once it got hot..... I bet the RB carbs never stick !!!
