i would try and get a hold of a p3 before you do to much more tuning... the correct plug can make your life easy!

sounds like your going the wrong way with the needles. If it's only 11o you would lean it out clockwise hi side needle that would remove the bog. Shoot for 200-250 tempF*low side needle flush with housing. One of your other post suggested you were turn the low side needle set that one flush and just go high side to chase that tune

I am running Byron 30% I started out with an A8 and went through 2 of those. I was told to try Mcoy 59 as it is hotter and that is what blew before the main. an anone tell me where to set the needles to start to see if I am in the ballpark. I am in Florida, Sunday was in the 70's and there was fog in the morning so I guess the humidity was up there.
I love chasing ghosts. Last week was the first time I tried to run offroad in 10 years. I burned up 2 Spectrum receivers and my JR digital throttle and steering servos. Nobody can figure that one out. Ran 2 practice tanks and Poof done for the day.
This week I had the plug problems. I didn't have a single lap until the b main and bumped up it ran great. Go figure
By the way I used an old Futaba AM radio and Stock Kyosho servos out on my IGT. Not a single glitch or servo failure. GOD I LOVE THIS SPORT!
I gotta tell you though, making that Eight fly over the triple is all worth it
I have a V Spec ready to go when I get used to driving the VG. I May just switch if I can't figure this out.
