Default HOW DO YOU GET 10 MIN+ RUNTIME???

I just dont see how the pros can get past 10 minutes on a buggy in one tank. theres got to be a trick out there or something. maybe a hidden reserve tank in their radio tray?? please share your tips on how you guys get runtimes like this out of your motor. thanks

X2 there are so many factors. Throttle control and tune being the biggest.

Yep the less wheel spin the better. Spinning the wheels only eats up fuel.

Thank you !!!!


I suggest you talk with Big Jammin Little Krazy.... He is like a os guru and has experience with long runtimes and the exact motors you use. He is a real technical dude he knows like everything.


FWIW i rarely see 10+ min stops in buggy. I think i saw it once in my area.

No but seriuosly the right motor and pipe combo makes a difference and the less wheel spin(throttle control) and clucth set up or a huge factor as well.

clutch and other varibles never made much difference in fuel economy from my experience, it takes the right engine and pipe combination with a smooth trigger
