Hi guys, im trying to run a .26 Maxx in my Revo with an ERCM side pipe.
Right now i am using what i believe to be a CRT .5 header (not 100% sure as i bought it used from a friend)
I am having issues with getting it sealing properly. I am using an OFNA gasket but i am getting a ton of residue and leakage at the port. Can anyone reccomend a proper or better header for this application?

Also a tuning question, i am not convinced that my needles are where they are supposed to be, i had a terrible time last year trying to break in the engine.

Can someone please confirm for me what the factory setting is on the HSN and LSN. Did some reading and there seems to be some mixed reviews on where they actually are. Bought the mill fall 2010 if that helps determine the generation.

If you are using a CRT.5 manifold it is too big, Traxxas uses their own size exhaust outlet. Check out THS Racing. They have a variety of pipes for traxxas.

The high speed needle should be 3 to 3.5 turns out from closed.
Low speed needle should be approx 1mm out from flush of the ball end.
These setting are for break-in and will be rich.

Awesome thanks for the info. Does THS sell manifolds? i would prefer to not get rid of this pipe.

I found a header OFNA# 31991 depending on where i look at it, it says its for .21 .26 .28 .32 that manifold should work on the Maxx .26 then?

The Max .26 has the same exhaust diameter as the Traxxas engines.
That manifold will be too large.

Does anyone have a reccomendation for a header that would work for this?

Just confirmed with the LHS that it is indeed too big. Apparetnly when i talked to them the first time they didnt catch on to the picco .26 being a small block sized engine...
