Anyone have any ideas?
To me it looks like your running your engine to lean. The first sign of a lean engine is broken elements on the glow plug.

They came out at the same time as the Speed engine. I bought these at Spiral RC in Tokyo. I just looked at A-main hobbies and found them on there website. Should be easy to get anywhere. The new aluminum head speed comes with the P3.

I'm still in the process of breaking mine in. The power seems very good especially down low. But I will say the scream it has at top end sounds killer.

Yes the engine sounds very different to a stock motor on the same pipe,ive noticed top end the speed has a wicked scream!!, over all sounds much 'deeper' and 'raspy'.Crazy power though you will like it

Hi all

I see the a lot of you are using the T3/A3 block in the rear, BUT, i saw in an erlier posting, that if the track became messes up (big holes, bumpy) during a raceday, going back to T3/A2 was the thing to do.
I thought that when the track get messed up, more antisquat was the way to go? am i wrong?

Another thing, what should i change from a standard setup (race roller), to make the car beahave better when track gets messed up, big holes, kraters etc

I use antisquat to tune how the car turns. I've found that more antisquat allows the car to steer into the corner harder and rotate a little quicker. Less antisquat settles the car down some going through the corner. Less antisquat will also give the car a little better straight line traction. I don't normally change antisquat based on the bumps unless it's causing a problem on the track.

Finken-
You are thinking right. More antisquat will help in the bumps if you have the traction. When you load the front of the car (like going into a turn) the increased antisquat will take away side bite in the rear. However, the higher antisquat value will let you accelerate through the bumps and keep the car flat.
Bottomline- if you like to drive on throttle, run antisquat.
If you drive with a lot of brakes or you are on the brakes in a bumpy section, run less antisquat.

Hope this helps,
TEX
