Default getting hot

what cause the engine to overheat besides running it to lean?

I geuss I can see if it will richen some more and still idle and run well enough to perform,it never hurts to run a car rich as much as it does lean.

I drive an rc10gt and it has reached temps up to 296 so I shut it off in hurry. the only mod I have done is changed the spur gear.

thanks for your help.

That may be the culprit, how many teeth did u go down on the spur, or how many up . This could cause the engine to rev out too quickly and be at high rpms for more than it should be and thats one reason why it may be running hot... another is the mixture like you were thinking, i say richen up the top end about a half turn and see what happens.
