dont exceed 270 and if you do only let it happen once after like a few tanks of run like at the end of a 30min main
but mine runs at 210-230 but i just leaned it out so hopefully it runs between 225-240

I run mine at about 260 per the advise of the Mugen drviers who go to Revelations. They do like to run hotter than others. I was also told to try and not exceed 280. Watch for a nice smoke trail anywhere in this range and you should be safe. I have been running one in my MBX5T like that and have about 6 gallons through it. Still a beast!!

LOL. Thanks nobike. I'll be hitting REV again when the new track goes in! I know I've seen the base needle setting in one of the 3 forums I frequent. Having a hard time finding it. I'd just give Mugen a call directly. I'm surprised at how often people wait on the boards for information and never call the manufactures directly!!! If this question was on my thread I would suggest you take out the needles and replace with bathroom caulk.



Mugen 949-707-5607

I'm headed down to socal today for some elec racing. It keeps the skills sharp!!!

Most engine companys have a base needle setting, for example 3 1/2 turns out on HS needle and 5 turns out on LS, i might throw in a brand new piston, sleeve and rod, and want to break it in, as if it was new from the factory, and plus it helps sometimes start all over with the factory needle settings if a person was to get the tune way of the mark......

Who am i ? (HINT)= i finished third in points in expert buggy in the losi series at REV behind Adam Drake and Aaron Waldron...................
