Jason doesnt need a cow catcher, he needs a corally catcher. I got spun around at the end of the sweeper and he hit me head on full speed. Suprisingly enough neither of our cars broke, his battery just flew out. Doh. 4200's were awesome. Stupid rip.

Yeah I think he got confused....When the guys told him they used 386 DOLLAR motors, he thought they said to run is motor at 386 DEG!!!!!!

Talked toThe " Heated Tweaked Cowboy" today. For his first race with an 1/8th scale I would say he did "OTAY"! But I will let him tell ya all about it......

Yeah I don't know what happened??? I warmed it up on the box about 3 heats before mine, and all was good, it ran fine for two heats of practice. Then when it came race time, it wouldn't startwas cutting in and out on the track. After the race she came off 386 degrees . Other than that, I just need to learn how to drive through pot holes. Beofre it got tore up, I had as fast of laps as anybody, but I need more experience at mini supercross. I would be mid track just going slow and all of a sudden just flip over, very frustrating. I will order some different springs and diff oil for next time.

Well welcome to 8th scale offroad racing! I love it! It's my favorite class incase you guys havent picked up on it!!!



If you came off at 386 but were running at normal temps before check for an air-leak. It also leads me to believe you have an air-leak if your engine was cutting in and out. What you can do to test for an air-leak is fill up your sink or a bucket with water, and pull you tank and fuel lines from your XB8. Plug one end of the fuel line with a 3mm screw and then submerge your tank and fuel lines under the water. Blow into the unplugged end of the fuel line hard and see if you get any bubbles coming from your fuel assembly. If you have any bubbles your sucking in air.

Also check your air filter to see if you were sucking in dirt or anything? Also if their is moisture around anywhere on your engine you can possibly have a leak there...

Just trying to lend a helping hand,
Aaron

I'll check it out, but I doubt it, it runs fine now and for the last 30 min of track time. It happened right after changing brands of fuel, I broke in on one and raced another after buying more at the track. Maybe the fuel made 150 degrees of difference .
