    That thing looks sweet. I actually just sent an LRP .30 to Robin today. Mine is going to be more for speed though. He is also making me 2 side bleed pipes. I've heard nothing but great things about his work and am very excited. Are you going to be able to pull a sunfire with that truck like the one in the video on the ERCM sight?

    Been dragging my Heels on this thing, But heres the latest.
    Has the engine and pipe in it now, with a little something special from Extreme RC Mods. FLM Bulks/towers are on the way. GH Arms sitting in wait and Skid plate being drawn up as we speak. I've taken the 2nd and 3rd gear out of the transmission. So the truck is a single speed, Low geared unit. 12/52 engine to tranny, And looking for an 11T CB if I can find it again. I saw one once on ebay, Didn't buy it. Cant find another one to save my life

    Now before You say the word "Back Pressure", In order to have back pressure you need restriction, If you look closely you will see there is No restriction after the Pipes stinger.

    Im really hoping to get down to No Limit finals this year in May.
    .






    Tank 3 of Break in, Testing for Back Pressure, Temps were well within reason.

    Head over to UnReel Rc's youtube page for some quality RC edits:http://www.youtube.com/jgaffmx

    Cheers guys, That video was from last summer when I picked the engine up from ERCM. I've almost got 3/4 of a gallon through it, Still waking up every time I take it out. Your feet vibrate when the truck is within a few meters, lol. The resonance from the stacks is insane.

    Look for it in the No Limit videos later this year. Im really hoping to make it down for the Unlimited Pulling comps.

    Here are some VIdeo's from Last year, Its well overdue. I finally got around to putting them up on youtube. Sorry guys. They arent great, but I never have anyone to hold the camera.

    Break in. After a half a tank of on/off throttle bursts, I let the engine sit for a few seconds to see what the idle would do. The stacks definitely do not hamper performance or Temps at all.


    I tried to get a shot of the front end coming off the ground. Not far, about 1CM, but still darn good for an engine with only 7-8 tanks in it and geared 17/47. But by the time I finished talking, the engine was too loaded and died on take off with no punch. I honestly couldn't tell you why I don't have a video of me trying a second time. But its a decent half second of the pipes blowing smoke :twisted:


    Half a gallon into this engine. Still not performance tuned, only doing quick throttle stabs. I think from factory, the HSN is in 1/10th turn, and the Low Speed is in maybe 1/4 turn. Still rich and very tight, not even close to producing its potential power. Already shredding Three Speeds.


    The top of the Blown 3spd, I've seen worse, but not on an un-tuned engine. The ERCM Drive Line Curse starts already :lol:



    The Fix, an SV250 Bullet Proof Single Speed Tranny (See http://www.savage-central.com/module...wtopic&t=86582 for Bullet Proof 3 Speed Mod) EDIT: Just noticed this is just the Single Speed Mod, I have since installed the 2spd Idle and Drive gear. Guess I didnt take a picture of it.


    The FLM Bulks and Towers with GH arms and Integy Hubs. LST shocks and Powder Coated Raven Dual Rate Springs.
    I'll get some pics of the whole Truck Aluminum'd out once the Blue Tranny comes in

    The Saga Continues...
    Put the aluminum tranny case in the other day, Today I got the proper hitch and bull bar mounts installed. I need to tweak the bull bar a bit yet.
    The engine is finally ready to start performance tuning. My Skid plate comes in tomorrow, so the truck will be 'pull ready' and I hope to start getting some video of it pulling junk around my yard.
    Better pictures of the truck fully re-assembled are coming. My batteries died today once I finally got the camera out, but here is another teaser.

    The truck does wheelie when it has good traction, lol. Loose gravel and damp grass dont provide the most excellent grip.
    Tonight if I remember I will get pictures up of the truck with its three sets of tires, and the bull bar and hitch installed
