Robert,

It stays idling perfectly fine, but when I squeeze the throttle it flames out. plenty of smoke so when its running, its not running lean. It looks like its got an air leak somewhere, because after it stalls, I have to put it on the starter box for a bit to get fuel to the carby.

I have to get out there and figure out where the hell the air leak is coming from.

Remove the fuel tank and block off one of the lines and blow air through the other line while holding it under water. Look for little air bubbles. May also want to replace all the fuel lines with new.

I had a similar problem to what you are explaining. My problem ended up being the carb was shooting fuel into the air filter which would saturate the air filter not allowing enough air to pass through when I would punch it.

So just check your filter to make sure it doesn’t have any fuel in it. Also you could pull your filter off and turn it over. If there is tons of fuel coming out of the carb I would check the needle settings again.

Is anyone running an OS VG30? The way the manual says to set it to factory settings is stupid. Its a certain number of turns out for the high speed needle, but the low speed needle it says has to be flush with the thing that connects to the throttle servo, and thats bloody hard to get 100% right. Does anyone have suggestions as to x number of turns from all the way in to get it right?

I'll check the filter thing today. That could be it, but i haven't checked for air leaks in the tank yet, and I think that might be why there is no fuel in the line when I get to WOT. the pressure increases just enough for a slight air leak to happen stopping the fuel pressure.

Will check back later with results.

As far as I know the people that are running titanium turnbuckles the whole upper turnbuckle needs to be changed. Here is a link if your are looking to convert.

I am still using the hingepin mod to my turnbuckles. I just hate having to adjust them with a wrench. I ran them the entire season with no problems last year.

I would highly recommend using Gene's turnbuckle upgrade - they are solid 7075 aluminium so they are strong but are 6 grams lighter than the stock ones and can be adjusted with a 7mm wrench (and no need to ram hinge pins thru em!).

You can buy them from Gene's store or ebay -

Here's how they look on one of mine (you can also see Gene's ackerman plate too - also highly recommended)

I am using Kyosho Universals I bought from AMainhobbies(part # KYOIFW308) for the center/front & (part # KYOISW502) for the center/rear. I think the rear is a little too long though I had to modify it slightly so it wouldn't bind.

I just got the Matrix TR RTR with the .28 in it. I'm getting a starter box, probably the Ofna Chrome top. Will I have to remove to the pull starter on it
and put a different backplate in it to remove the engine spacer? Or will the starter box wheel reach it if I leave the pull start on? The reason I ask, is that if I can leave the pull start on I will....I dont plan on racing....

Thanks!

Tree, I'm using those same universals and they fit fine, had to grind pins a little so they didn't bind with brake discs, I haven't done the small sur conversion, that is where you might have run into problems. How did you modify it to work? Pooldoc
