well , I was previously playing with my engine settings as I just completed brake-in for os 12tz 5 ports ...
I was still in process of getting a feeling of properly running engine , I took the car to parking lot , ignited it up , and after 2 minutes its felt like its running on neutral with some funky smelling around ...
so I closed the engine and my temp gauge showed 302f !
i was like what the heck , I took it for repairing at home and I noticed that the aluminum clutch gear got so hot that its burned both spur gear in place where its contacts... I opened the clutch and its looks like most of the parts overheated there , the ball bearings got some funky yellow colour even =/
well , I just totally rebuilt the car , cleaned everything out , replaced the spur gears and my question is , should I replace the clutch also ?
Is there some parts which can be damaged due this overheating ?
also , could this overheating happen cause of bad fuel ? ( I bought some local fuel for rc , no brand
) , yeah I learned my lesson ;p
I wasn't running the engine too lean , there was lots of smoke coming out from exhaust pipe ... hmm
p.s Please recommend me a place where I can buy clutch setups for mtx4 , I just found out my favorite online shop don't have it , please suggest !
