do you have the manual, if not go download it, follow all the steps outlined, and do a search on here, its a very detailed process, that requires patience...search and read....not being a prick, just i run novarossi's and they are completlly different animals...good luck brotha!...also if your looking for some help from guys running reedy motors, you should list wich motor your having a problem with, and give more details, how many tanks u ran thru her, is it a new motor,,,the more details you put out there, the easier it is to help you
Thinking on maybe a Tekno 1/8 Nitro Buggy?

Well I got mine from a friedn pre-tuned, but when I moved back to Germany I had to tune a little my slef. His advice was the best advice ive recived was " tune to sound" I was always the guy at the track going " hey the manual says optimal temp is 250 for this engine and im running 190 and its performs like shit!" But after watching him I soon realaized that hey the sound works. Now for my reedy sometimes it can be touchy but other times shes a dream. So im going to say is good luck and have patience. If you need help let me know. I would say start with the top and work you way down (HSN than LSN)
