It has power and good fuel mileage for a 7 port. To avoid flameouts, run #6 or hotter plugs, fresh good fuel (25-30% nitro), use a NR short header with 9901 or 9853 pipe. Run 6.5, 7, or 7.5mm carb restrictors, use as need for more bottom end smoothness. Thing to watchout for is the rear bearing. Make sure to check or replace the rear bearing at 1.5-2 gallons, as most had issues with the first plus series 26mm bearings going out.

what are flameouts? is the bigboy pipe ok to avoid flame outs???, because i heard it will increase runtime. to me its about saving fuel, having power and having a long life for the engine.
