Until the test is conclusive and the power band is leveled and remains insane then I can spend the funds to pick one up.
Chuck engine is fast but I need reliability along with power, I am not the fastest driver out there but I try to remain consistent and try to finish the race and with tuning issues that would remain questionable.
To be fair, I have had problems with the engine only since the trophy race. 2 days before it was silly fast and purred like a kitten. I only got one chance to try and figure it out since then and that was with you. I took it apart and the internals looked fine. It has to be a bad o-ring somewhere. Team-Orion was supposed to send me one for the rear plate 2 weeks ago, but I am still waiting. I went out today for 1/2 hr or so and got it almost there, but not quite. I will try a nova rossi carb hopefully in a lot around here. If I get it working the way it was, then it has to be a carb o-ring too. I will inspect them hopefully tomorrow.
