There is not a big problem with them. You just tune them a bit different than a p5 for instance. On all my other motors I barely touch the lowspeed for power, I use the top needle. On the GRP you set the top so it clears out nice on a straight, and you use the low speed needle for power.

a guy at our track just got one of the grp motors and he is the best motor tuner i have ever seen and his flamed out 3 times in one main.so i think it is more than just tunning.

my god this is funny .. I have been running GRP engines for well over a year, they do not flame out if you know how to tune them.....Anyone having issues with flameouts needs to be looking at their setup and tuning and quit blaming the engines... I think its pathetic how people try to blame anything but their own tuning skills.....

Agreed 100%, my GRP 21 idles perfectly has only flamed out when it was my fault, and hauls my 8T around very nicely

How does an engine randomly flame out like that? Or is it not known and that's why it's called the "mystery" flame out?



I want to buy a GRP but I'm dropping Go-Tech because of the tuning issues. I don't want to drop one engine that's a bitch to tune for an engine that won't stay running.

It's different to tune, all about LSN which is unconventional...

You have to go with what works for you. Obviously the GRP and Maifeild didn't see eye to eye.
but if you are under contract taking a monthly paycheck from them and your at one of the biggest races or the year.. IMO.. you should run that sponsers product you are under contract & getting paid to promote that product or if your having a problem with them take it up with them before or after the race..to me it looks bad on ryan bad bussniess...he thought the motors where good enough to sign the contract and take the check

i agree with u he should of never took the deal.. i got a grp took it off not my type motor. I didnt have any engine problems at all the motor just didnt have the power i was looking for. So ill stick with the motors i know will work for me.. GO motors/ Vspec/ speeds.. and ive never once had a flame out with a GO motor put a p3 plug or a hot long body nova plug and its on... only motor i had flame out problems with is a NOVA 367..

[QUOTE=mugenb46;4627602]Drake and Truhe couldn't of helped, they had GRP tunners there tunning there engines.QUOTE]

It's kind of funny. Adam and Truhe go to the local track around my area. I was having problem with mine flaming out and Drake took it, tuned it and now the thing runs non stop. So to say they don't tune their own motors is untrue.
