Default What do you think of this Nitro Tuning guide?


Might not be able to see the pic.

My question is , should a nitro engine really be able to idle for 1 minute with out loading up with fuel?

Right now I get great power out of my motor, but as the run goes on and it gets hotter and hotter. It will run till I shut it off but after 6-7 minutes of hard running it was coming in at 300 .

I found this guide and thought i would follow the chart to see if I can fix my issue.

thats what i learned off of. and yes it should idle forever. NOW if its idleing for a while and you punch it, then it should load up and die, if yours is coming in at 300 richen the hsn

If the engine is in good condition than yes, it should be able to idle for 1min.

If it's loading up with fuel during idle you need to lean the LSN.

If your motor gets hotter and hotter as it runs till it flames then your too lean on the top.
