Since when is Dennis spelled with a G or a little g

I have a question for you, I had a couple of plugs go bad in perticular Mc Coy MC-59s the first one I noticed when I tried to start the engine before a quailifyer and the second during the main at the 13 min mark seemed the engine loaded up and died wile I was being un hooked from a pipe I seemed to get caught under

I wan't to know what causes this is it the tune on the engine or did the plug just fail.

Inquirering Mind wants to know

Motorman,

Is there a torque or a power band difference between .21 Nova engines meant for On-Road and those meant for Buggies??

Tee: or should I say Terry, The engines that I am currently running
are based on my Mentor's (Motorman) philosophy of 2 stroke
engine design...that is I am currently building and running my
own engines of my own modifications...but, that everything I have
learned and incorporated into my engines is DIRECTLY influenced
by my correspondence with Dennis Richey, yet is of my own
design... BTW, the DUDE knows .12 engines!

Default Another dang question!

Im using high temp RTV to seal my buggies C4's head between the upper copper head washer and the button head. Is this a bad thing to do?

Cool Thanks Motorman

I might be sending you a brand new C4 on-road engine to work on here in a few months. I need it to whoop the .21 JP race engine.
