Default Re: Best oil filter to run on a China Girl? Is the Serve Pro ok?

Drilling lightening holes in the frame is good but you'll want to start with the front fork. Drill as many holes as you have room for. The lighter the front end, the more weight will be distributed to the rear wheel where the drive friction is. But, always remember to lean back when accelerating or over rough terrain. You don't want to put too much pressure on that front end.

Fuel additives are important too. Model airplane fuel with a minimum of 50% nitro is recommended. Slack off on the oil ratio too. Oil doesn't burn and will just slow you down. I like the 1000:1 ratio for top performance. But watch your plug color.
