Life Expectancy

I read somewhere that the life expectancy of these gas powered engines are only like 2 0r 3 gallons of fuel. Is that true ?

Re: Life Expectancy

I ran about 4 gallons (25%), then put a rebuild kit into it. Sooner if needed! then can get about 3-4 more depending on how hard I run.

Re: Life Expectancy

I'm pretty sure this isn't true, I have had my Kyosha nitro since 1995 and have run many gallons through it and it shows no signs of wear, and I haven't exactly been easy on it either.

Re: Life Expectancy

Nope, no car, I am only 14 years old, gonna be 15 on the 17th of this month. I want to get a chevy barreta, or a older Corvette. I think i am just gonna get a half-to-hell car for the winter months, for the summer i really, really, really want to get a honda CBR600, or a CBR900. The Ducati's are nice, but the parts would be expensive.

Re: Life Expectancy

Never really thought this was an issue. Hmmm how hard are the engines to rebuild? I wanna get a T-Maxx here within a few months. I wanna get to know as much as possible before I really get into it. Don't wanna spend $500 for all the bells and whistles and do something stupid.
