Mine runs like a raped ape. Maybe he should of asked Drake and Truhe about tuning. Speaking of "ghost flame outs" I have yet to see anyone in my area with a sirio that runs.

Go motors are the ones that flame alot. I have tried them, numerous peeps at our local tracks tried them and they all suck IMO.

At the level he is racing at, he can't have products that don't work for him.

Same reason he went back to 27/75mHz from 2.4gHz. It wasn't working for him. He lost a couple of big races due to mystery flameouts using the GRP engines. I think he'll be using the OS engines until the Reedy one is figured out and working where he's comfortable with it.

You have to go with what works for you. Obviously the GRP and Maifeild didn't see eye to eye.

One of the reasons he left them was because he could never get the runtime some of the losi guys were getting.
