Default MENACE 21

I HAVE THIS TRUCK. I'M STILL USING THE THUNDER TIGER .21 PRO. HOWEVER, THIS ENGINE LIKES TO SUCK AIR INTO IT THRU SPOTS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SEALED. FOR EXAMPLE.... AROUND THE CARBUREUTOR THROAT, THE SCREWS THAT TIGHTEN THE THROAT, AND WHERE THE SHAFT MEETS THE FLYWHEEL. THIS WAS VERY TROUBLESOME FOR ME AS IT TENDS TO SLOWLY LEAN THE ENGINE OUT AS THE ENGINE WARMS UP, CAUSING IT TO LOSE POWER AND EVENTUALLY OVERHEAT AND STOP RUNNING. I PUT TEFLON TAPE AROUND WHERE THE CARB MEETS THE ENGINE TO FIX THAT LEAK. I FIXED THE LEAK AROUND THE SCREWS THAT TIGHTEN THE CARB THROAT BY PUTTING SEVERAL COATS OF NAILPOLISH OVER THEM. (THIS WORKS GREAT) TRY THESE FIRST IF YOUR ENGINE LACKS POWER. OTHER THAN THAT, AND THE FACT THAT YOU'LL NEED HIGH TORQUE METAL SERVOS AND A RECHARGABLE SERVO BATTERY PACK; THIS TRUCK KICKS ASS! IF YOU NEED SOME HELP I KNOW THIS SHUIE REALLY WELL, PM ME WITH QUESTIONS....
