LRP ZR.30 Spec 2 5 Port Pull Start Monster Truck Engine
I have this motor in my Associated RC-8B. I did have to buy the non-pull start (backing plate) to make it fit. The pull starter was hitting the rear out drive shaft. I'm also using the Super Tiger (long) pipe. "WOW" is all I can say!! This motor Rips BIG TIme. I think I'll have to gear it up because it hits so hard. Well over a gallon of fuel so far and only need 1 new glow plug. Running temp at best 185-190. I don't feel the need to go any hotter than that. If you are looing for a motor that idles nice and has Massive power,,,, this is it!!!!!

LRP ZR.30 Spec 2 5 Port Pull Start Monster Truck Engine
First engine mod I have tried for the Team Associated MGT 4.6. This thing is nutz. I had to buy a roll cage because it almost instantly pulls wheelies so you have to be careful. easy to tune. I run a three chamber exhaust on it. If you run the temp around 185 it has great power. leaned it up to run at 250-270 and its just ridiculously fast. Since then I've bought 3 more and waiting on an 18 to put in my GT2.

LRP ZR.30 Spec 2 5 Port Pull Start Monster Truck Engine
So I put it in my truck and started it. I had it idling to break it in. Next thing I know it is approaching 300 degrees even though I kept turning the needle out. I tried turning the needle counter-clockwise until the needle came all the way out. I spoke to LRP and they are using a different carb. on this motor and have not updated the directions with the new needle settings. Now I need to send this thing back to LRP and hope they will fix it. Right now it is just an expensive paper weight. Waste of time and money.

I stalled this in my LST2 after the Z28 Spec 3 died. This thing is a totally insane power house! Very easy to tune and way more power than you need for any 1/8th scale vehicle! You can raise up your gearing for insane top speeds or stick with stock for infinite wheelies. I actually backed off my slipper to make the truck more drivable as the front end never wants to stay on the ground at any speed. I never ran anything higher than 20% nitro in it and have been totally pleased.
