Yodace, I have had new engiens run a little hot even with good needle settings. This usually means break in is not complete.

The only other possiblity is you are too lean up top. Richen(turn out) the high needle about 2-3 clicks to bring the temps close. 1 click will only amount to 15 or so degrees where I live.

My CV-R normally runs at 200-210 in club race trim, for bigger races I sometimes lean on it a little and run 220-235.

Actually our new illuzion GT2 body is really close, now that Jason has his truck and it is built, it should be done VERY soon!

He put up pics of his GT2(naked, no body) on RC10B4.com on the front page....show off, LOL.

We've done some more testing and we should have some good setups on the AE site by the time the kit is out.

Dave Montgomery got his Friday and raced it and won the McCulloughs RAC Gas Truck A Main ..its an awesome truck.

My local hobby shop now has GT2 parts in stock. That means it should be no more than a month out, that is if history holds true. And gee just as summer is over. Oh well there is indoor.

Cool, the GT has TQ, 5 of 9 and our local hero JR Mitch is locked into the show!



Hopefully with some time the GT2 will be more competitive........

Jared Tebo and GT2 .... 2006 National Champ!

Congrats to Jared for his 3rd title in a row. It was an awesome race to watch him come back to win from being dead last on lap 1.

Jared is a great kid, an asset to A/E! It's nice to see a guy with his demeanor do well, it's unreal how he changes when the transmitter is turned on, LOL.

Congrats to him and to you guys at A/E!!!

I may have to break down and pick up a GT2 now.

I spoke with Gary Owens on Friday the 22nd regarding the shipping date on the truck. He said it should begin to ship this Thursday as in today!!. Of course that can always change, but it really looks like it will be any day now.
