Hey Mr. Swauger can you clear something up for me? On the rear lower pins, which position gives a lower roll center(more rear traction), bottom middle or top?

Yes I knew that. I was not what he was trying to suggest. Last time I checked you could not change the wheel base ont the MTX-3. Maybe I am wrong??

Default Engine

hi I am having a problem with my Picco IDM 12 engine, when the plug is new it works well, but after a few runs when I start the engine after a few seconds it will turn off. Then I put another new plug and it works, the plug I am using is the IDM T7, fuel 16/10, can any body help please?

Thanks

What do the plugs look like when they start making problems?
Color?
Shape of the wire?

If the wire is pushed into the plug, you might need to add a 0,1mm head shim.
