sorry that shoe doesnt fit. Nice try though. different fuel and new clutch etc. It needed to be tuned a bit anyway. They guy at the track made 1 adjustment. It still wasnt running the way it was supposed to THE VERY NEXT DAY. It has been doing nothing but flaming out. And dieing.

That's because you're retarded and took it all apart and ran it threw puddles!! You cant expect your motor to last if you bash on it either. you just need to pick up a Tyco so you wont have to post on teh internet how everything is crapping out on you

Dreaux, here comes the part when you spend more money! Take your engine out of your car, take off the clutch and flywheel, and send it to one of many engine guys...while its gone, go get a $100 sport engine and break it in, learn how to tune, and learn what you are doing..when your V-spec comes back from the Mod guy, put it on your shelf filled with after run oil, and sealed in an air tight bag..In a few months when you know what's up..switch back to the V-spec, and use the cheep mill as a backup..Either that or throw away $300, and then spend another $300 and watch that go up in smoke also

3 $100.00 engines or 1 $300.00 engine, the three engines will give you more opertunitys to learn how to tune.

There's some Screaming cheep engines out there today. The Dynamite Mach 427, the Hyper .21 8 port..I still use the Hypers as Back up engines. $120 and it will keep up with a vspec on the top end

Start shopping Dreaux

Hey, the Hypers are surprisingly good! I was fooled by the dull look of the cranckase (looks are everything to me), until my LHS owner told me to give it a shot. A great buy Get an OFNA 053 pipe with it dreaux

i guess ill be the first to try and help you with your current problem
There are a lot of reasons why your motor will cut out. My first tip is replace your glow plug. Often if your engine has been run to lean or rich it will break down the element at the end of the plug and it will lose its conductivity. when you rev the engine if the glow plug cant stay hot enough the engine will flame out. So swap the plug with a brand new one. The next step is setting the needles to their factory settings, set the lsn, hsn and the carb gap. from there begin tuning and hopefully all goes well, post back if the plug doesnt help.

this plug is practicaly brand new. has about 8 tanks on it. although it was doing the same think before i replaced the last one. I went back to factory settings already. It has to be one of a couple things. 1. the crankcase is cracked (i fliped the car pretty bad and it put a dent in my muffler), 2. air leak in the carb, even though the screw is tight that was one of my problems before, it is tight but once i start to loosen it, it's well loose. 3. P/S lost compression.

It could also be a fuel system leak. I have checked the best way i can. but have not found any leaks. I am not giving up. worst case i send it off to O.S to get it serviced.

Get an Axial .28 or something similar... Hard-ish on fuel, but a reliable engine for a budget price, and you can learn to tune on that, that way, your nice .21 stays nice until you get tuning down

Also, tuning by sound only works for some people, others need to tune by smoke, or feel, and most by temp.

Not everyone is sensitive to sound
