Discribe the bog you are having at WOT. Don't touch the middle!

basically at temp (210-220), it runs good then it seems to shut off for no reason, im not tuning for power yet cause its a new engine with less than a gal through it, both mid and low are flush, and top is 4 turns

Sounds like a lean bog.What plug are you using?MC-9 works really good,and so does a Odonell 99.

Also what pipe do you use.I run a 053 on my P-5s,they make good power combined.

For a P5, the bottom probably shouldnt be flush. Try to go a little leaner on the bottom. I dont touch the mid needle unless the engine is too rich at idle and the idle increases because of too much fuel entering the carb.

P5's are really stubborn to tune if your low end isn't close to perfect. Try race tuning the top first, and then lean the bottom so the engine drops right back down to idle.

BTW: With the Nova P5's, 4 out on the top is about 1/4-1/2 richer than it should be.

All engines run differently, just do whatever works for ya. You could always go back to stock settings and re-tune.

Never had any tuning issues with a P-5.

Once you get the bottom end set,it should be pretty easy to tune.

Goodluck

Instead of making a new thread...

Everybody around here runs their P5's with a king head or whatever. Is this just for bling, or does the motor need the extra cooling of the big head? For offroad 1/8 scale.

Running the new Pro S3 Nocer head on mine, it do make a difference at the 100 deg races. The coating doesn't were near as much as a stocker.

My needles were way off from the factory so If you are having trouble tuning it at any time the high needle should be about 3 turns out from closed and the low 5 turns out from closed. If you ever get in a bind with tuneing, just go all the way closed on top and bottom and follow those settings...you should be good to go everytime..
