It looks like I fried my engine yesterday. Couple of reasons I can think of:
- Hot weather + 35 C
- Small cooling head (didn't have time to buy the new larger one)
- 1st gear was shifting about a sec too late, we were trying to adjust it before the engine blew :-(
- Track is really fast, has a long straight where you can push the engine all the way up to the limit.
Situation on the engine is following: It blew right at the end of the straight. It just made a silent tsssss (like a snake) before it went dead. Car was very hot at that point. I waited like an hour for it to cool down completely. Then I restarted it. It starts without a problem but after 10-15 sec it stalls again.
Now the question is: Will it be enough for me to just buy a new piston and sleeve set? Or what else should be changed? Or is it enough if I just polish the pieces that have been fried? Maybe dumb questions, but first time with a dead engine and just looking for some help here as a loyal Serpent fan and driver.
P.S.: Greetings to Tomaschko and Kandi, looking forward to seeing you here with the new 720 asap. Alles klar?
