Default vspec running temp

i switched nitro percentage and My vspec runs like i want it too. But now it's like 245 degrees? I switched from 30% to 20% oddonnel fuel. And i SWEAR it runs faster harder on 20. Maybe i am crazy? the only thing is, it runs hotter now like i said. So should i be worried about this temp? with the 30 it was at 230 mostly.I

it is a series that hits most of the track in louisiana and keeps points per track for the top finishers. Each round has about 120 entries so far this year.
next round it august 15th at action hobbies.

you motor will run better on 30 % but you will have to retune completely. Dont tune to temps. Sound and smoke.

the way it's been raining i don't know if there will ever be another race

anyway. my vspec is riciculously easy to tune. So i can get excactly what i want when i want. Took me a while to get this good at it. And i do agree about sounds and smoke. But 250 is just to much. I got it rippin at 220 again with the 20%.

and if 30% is better it's not by much at all. well maybe on the low end.

you still using the plus 4? gettin a ninja next week

250 is not to much. If the motor is blowing smoke and not lean bogging then it is good. when it is 115* outside you will see higher motor temps.

and watson raced on saturday.
