A hotter plug typically just advances your timing. If it's running correctly now, you may have just had a bad plug. Even a brand new plug can malfunction. It sounds like your idle is pretty close, I'd go about 1 hour leaner though.

thanks for the help, makes sense on the timing, hotter plug lights the mixture at less relative compression..... i'll lean it a smidge next time i runit and go back to the 8

thanks!

I am running a Hitec HS-5945MG servo. More than enough torque for it. Probably good enough for truggy too.

As for fuel, I run Byrons 25%, but will probably go to 20% here. 30% should be fine. Byrons stuff is top notch.

As for your clutch setup, I would say its buggy dependent.

i run 2 carbon shoes 1.0mm springs, and 1 aluminum shoe, 1.1mm springs. Lots of punch still but not as insane as an all aluminum setup. The engine has load of low end so this smooths it out.

No problem. I am learning too, and the tips I have gotten have really made a difference. Wish I had all that when I had my LST! would have saved my some serious headaches.

Main thing I was told about going to the setup I have other than being softer off the line was that you don't need to have as much maintenance as you do with an all aluminum setup. When I was told guys where checking them (all aluminums) after each 2 or 3 runs, some every run which involves taking the engine off , etc. I definitely wanted to try a different setup. No regrets! And its cheaper too as I get more out of a 4 pack of alloy shoes and can find the carbons dirt cheap.
