It was recomended to me to run 30% O' Donnel fuel. What are your opinions on this choice and what advantages and disadvantages are there to using different mixes and are there additives that I want to look into using?
Is there and advantages or disadvantages to using the Turbo button over the normal button. And also what plug do you recomend I use?
Also I live in Wisconsin so temperature is going to change alot throughout the season. Is there special considerations I need to take into affect besides diferent tunning to compensate for this?
O'Donnel fuel works fine. I usual use Byron30%.And I usual use OS P6 Turbo Pulg.About working temperature:
Air temp. 20-30C --- max about 120C (68-86F max 248F)
Air temp. 10-20C --- max about 100C (50-68F max 212F)
Air temp. 0-10C --- max about 80C (32-50F max 176F)
Try to keep enough lubricity to your engine,it will very lasting. As I have said before,a working fine engine can drink all of the fuel in the tank and keep stable temperature;stable idle;never singing. When you feel the engine is not fast enough but working fine,first thing you should think about is ....
1)If the tyres stick?or the track is clean without many sand?or the tyres are too small?
2)If you should change the gear ratio?
3)If the clutch is ok?
4)If the transmission or bearing smooth?
5)The last way is to lean a bit your engine.
