    My daughter's Dune Racer with motor and gearbox upgrades and running on 20v Li batteries now. It'll scamper on those plastic tires.

    She was laughing her head off doing donuts in it when she first drove it. Reminded me of someone here.

I actually never had heard a motor rattle before and realized the noise was the same noise I could hear at the track so I was nervous I was pushing it too hard. So that’s why I took it out. I realize the 10:1 disk probably wasn’t causing the rattle/detonation but I just wanted to put it back to “safe settings”. I pulled plugs, borescoped it, changed my oil, etc. glad I didn’t hurt it. Could of been bad/old gas but it freaked me out. I’m not gonna try to beat up on my truck and go for max effort. I got it into the 100mph club and that made me happy. Sure I wanna go faster but for now I can’t afford to blow it up.
    With the methanol injection I was able to run full to slightly advanced timing on pump gas with no rattle. One day I got curious and turned the meth off. That didnt last long. That was the first time I ever heard my truck rattle.
