ok ide better say something about gasbikes so i dont get too offtopic... ummm, so did you dremmel that piston ?
I'm running Tekin but back in the day I only ran Trinity. I had a sponsorship with them and of course, I used their stuff.
I miss Trinity Tech Talk.
Although I jumped back and forth from AE, to Losi, I started with AE.
Still have an old gold tub, pre stealth 6 gear tranny. lol
Yea I used a dremel on the piston skirt but only because I was at home and didn't feel like driving to work, or waiting until Monday to use my mill. I was also putting off splitting the cases and going all the way including matching the transfer ports and checking the bearings, but that would be "Half Steppin" and that ain't in my nature. Do it right, or don't do it at all is something I say to myself.
Hard to believe I'm building a Huffy with a Chinese motor when I have built some pretty expensive MTBs and motorcycles from the ground up, but this is a new experience and a new learning curve. And meeting new friends with similar interests is a bonus.
1989 KDX 200 bought and built one piece at a time. It took a 11 months.
