    Right on , MX3 radio, If you havent gone threw your tranny and diff. it might be a good idea to , thats were all the power from the Wasp is gonna hit. E your gonna go nuts with that .18 it is one forgiving motor I really like mine. The only thing I did to change it was to remove the carb. and put a 10e from a cvr.12 carb. on worked like a charm.

    First off do you no how to tear the tranny apart? Forgiving in the sense that I meant was for example the motor can take abuse to a point and still keep on ticking. In other words in a sense it'll forgive you for running it hard and well run hard the next time you fire it up , am I coming across to you? RED

    Okay well you can still take the time to make sure that the bearing move freely no play in the top shaft, and I would highly suggest that you purchase a metal brake adapter, get rid of the plastic one. RED
