i took my truck out this Anzac weekend to hav a bit of fun in the car
part with a couple of mates. i wanted to test the speed of my truck
b'cos it was tuned to perfection so there i was sitting out the car
window with the controller in my hand. i kept the truck close the the
side of the jeep and got it up to 67kph
it was sick.



so just a question how fast does ur truck go??



oh i am running a savage .25 with motor saver air filter, diff mod, steering mod, with body on, ect...

The stock speed is surposed to be about 60kph with a 18t clutchbell, so therefore you couldnt of been doing that speed with a stock S-25 engine, possibly with a picco or higher end engine but not with a stock force .25

Still, you cant gain 7kph from a 1 tooth higher clutchbell, itd have to be like a 22 tooth to gain that much more speed.

yeah soryy i shoulda specified my setup a bit more... i was running a
vented 19T CB witha 49T Spur. the truck is lowered to bout half inch
off the ground. ohh and i did lead the engine out so much so that it
would bearly keep running as JoNo knows i dont care wot i do to the old
S-25 cos i got a back up engine.



the temps were bout 400.F u could hear the fuel burning in the carb( like a crackling sound)

Wow. Why dont you just run the engine super lean, and not even in the truck so it overrevs if your trying to destroy it so much?
