Default JUST SOME QUESTIONS--

Hey, im new to the site-i recently picked up an ofna ob4-slim line and ive become quite familiar with it already-i managed to swap a nova mogen mt12 engine-its running with a two speed-great performance! Just a quick question, my engine seems to heat up to about 350-400*F within a tank. Anyone know what i should do to make it run better-its already running pretty rich?????
Also-just picked up the RPM camber gage- what do you guys recomend for the front and rear tires?
Thanks.

First off I think your motor is running way too hot try to keep temps in the 200 and up when driving it also go over to the engine thread and ask some questions about this particular motor someone will be able to help you.

350-400 it would be blowing up or not lasting long.

Are you sure its running that temp? I see canada in the sig so your probably used to C.

You can goto google and type in 123C to F and it will convert it to whatever your running or just post what you know its running to C. Otherwise dont run that motor again until you get it worked out or your going to blow it at those high temperatures.

400F = 204C. You should be running 240F = 115C , thats about the right range. Maximum I would ever allow would be 270F = 132C.
