We did some more testing yesterday with the serpent flywheel an Orions Serpent conversion kit on our Hobao. Also geared it down a bit for our tight track.
Man, did it come alive!!!!
Further testing is done today with the Orion pipe kit (2626).
We used all the weights, 0,5 gap, about 1,8mm preload (shimmed the flywheel nut so that the spring starts to compress when the back of the nut is flush with the top of the threads), and about 0,05mm endplay.
Leaned the HSN quite a bit. LSN was made richer than factory settings.
Air temp is about 4-5C (freezing!
Running MECCAMO touring competition fuel: 16% nitro, 8% oil.
Big thanks to Nano for helping us understand this engine better and bring out its potential!!
