Mite need to stiffin. it up a little. All these little thing on this struggle buggie will make life hard but wiil go away when the 2.0 comes to the house.
I really hope so I have a lot of fun racing! I enjoy wrenching as its part of the fun aswell but dang I would just like to get through the race before I start!

Get some help tuning the engine from some other racers... and check the slop on the conrod. A sloppy rod will give you these kind of symptoms- it will seem to run fine but you'll flame out frequently. (And check all the other stuff folks have mentioned.)

175 does sound a little on the cool side, but that engine does have a pretty big cooling head. I broke half the fins off of mine (by accident... newbies hit things and break in ways you would never imagine! ) and it still was plenty of cooling surface.

That engine is also a little on the "hard to drive" side. Too much bottom end to be a good buggy engine actually... and no top end. Going up a tooth or maybe even 2 on the clutchbell will help.
For sure not a very good racing buggy! Way to heavy and your right pretty hard to control because it does have a lot of bottom end but it does take a pretty good lickin and keeps on tickin.
