    Here's a couple of pic's of my motor...

    The motor has all the bottom end I need, it has excellent mid-range and good top end or wide open throttle.
    I thought about getting it modified but I would loose the ease of tuning it as it would become more difficult to tune. I'm still 50/50 on getting it modified as I just got the Reedy broke in (finally). I am satisfied with the performance of the Reedy but I could use a little more top end. Maybe switch to a Reedy 2039 pipe and see what that does. Stay tuned...

    yep, that is definitely a sign to get a new piston and sleeve. I would say, do you think it might be possible to have it pinched ?

    I know crazy right I bought a dynamite .21 xpe for a back up after the 4th gallon but the thing kept going ended up buying the rc8t and putting the xpe in that. Just started nitro Rc racing in June and the guys at the track told me how lucky I was to make it past 7 gallons . I don't know
