The TZ is alot of motor...Try to find a CV-R it is so much easier to drive. I dont know if they make a restrictor for the TZ. Alot of the other AE guys made an adapter for the 10E carb on the TZ to tame it down a little.

INDEX FINGER WORKS WELL BUT THIS MOTOR IS ALOT FOR A 1/10 TRUCK I AM SURE THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CAN CONTROL IT BUT WHY TRY TO CONTROL SO MUCH POWER 3/4 THROTTLE DOWN THE BAC STRAIGHT AND I PUNCH THE OTHER 1/4 AND THE THING SPINS OUT OF CONTROL I HAVE A CVR ON THE WAY WILL USE THE TZ FOR ON ROAD CAR

You can limit the throttle epa which is basically the same thing as putting a restricter in the carb. Just run it down the straight and keep setting it lower until it's not stupidly fast or out of control and that should make it better everywhere else as well. I do this on my brushless T4 and it works well. On my gas trucks I usually just tune them a little fat to tame them down depending on the track surface and layout. You can change the gearing to tame it down as well. Lots of different ways besides buying a new engine. But since you have one on the way that's the easiest : ) CV-R is a great engine.

TZ is nuts on power you may have a real hard time tamming that beast. Alot of top drivers are putting the 12e carb on them. Are you adding the weight to the front end like everyone else. I run a Pixy 12 and it too is sick on power at times it tough to keep the front end down add 1 ounce of weight to the front end.

I don't see where you need anything more than a TG (roughly the same as a cvr, but with a rear exhaust) Using bowties on a really sandy track it was really stable. I am going to try panther step pins next and see if i can get more bite

Check the squish in the head. Everybody told me .025" to .030" and you'll be all set for 30%. To check it you bend a piece of solder 90* so it'll fit down the glow plug hole. Make the bend face the same direction as the crankshaft so the piston can't flop, then rotate the flywheel over so it squishes the solder. Pull it out and measure it. If it's less than the above measurements add head shims till it's there.

I have a TZ in my GT2 and what I did to tame it was turn down the ARC on my M11 and my Expotential till it was a little smoother on the throttle.
