It's Alive......hehehehe

I rigged up a header for the OS18cvr so it will run on a revo. It mates up perfect with the revo trinity pipe in its stock location.

I took it out to tune it this evening and all i can say is wow. I was worried about loosing power due to a restrictive looking header, but I couldn't have been more wrong. THe engine seems to have as much, if not more, power than it did in the maxx.

I can let it sit for 4-5 seconds, punch the throttle and if it wasn't for the wing, it would be on its All this at temps consistently right around 200...woo hoo.

I will get some pics of the header layout soon and post em up here.

Exactly what you need to flip harder over the jumps, YAAAAAOOOOOOU!!! LOL!I am shure it rips Mike, you usualy have good motor set-ups.And to think i just sold my Picco P2 to Joel because it has too much power for the track for my taste, and that was with the stock pipe, Joel also has the Trinity pipe but i think that with the Picco he will have to run without the restrictive insert, bring your earplugs, that one is going to be LOUD!!!and fast...

almost done putting it in, a few more things to do, but work had to but its ugly head today, but i'm sure tomorrow will see what this picco can do in the revo.

i'm sure its going to be too much power, i'll just have to use extreme control on my heavy finger lol. Or get a wheely bar.

But i'm going to try it with the stinger in and out see what happens to the temp and speed, going to be running 15t bell, and 36t spure, hope thats big enough so i don't flip the truck every time. I'm just hoping for a motor that can stay tuned and running the rest of the season.

yeah its handfull now, but talk about fun, it only wheelied a few times, but fast, i love this engine already, thanks michel. Didn't want to run with the stinger in, so out came the stinger, and talk about loud, but it runs good, around 225 at the end of the tank, but it was a little cold outside today. I'm sure there is more tunning that can be done to optimize it, but its runs good as is even at 220 for temp.
