Sorry if I meant a new engine from Kyosho/Sirio. The engine on the Charge site is a replacement option engine due out Mid July. It needs the mounts to fit in as this engine has conventional style case, unlike the Sirio with bottom mounted screws. There is also a flywheel to go with the engine it appears.

If you to the Charge website I listed above, click on Spada "NEW" on the left side tabs and you'll see the engine. Its a AMR Speed engine 09CZ

With the Losi fuel tank mod I could run at race speed for 15 minutes. Now the engine just stops around 5 minutes. Then it is hard to start and will not idle. The engine revs and dies then revs and dies. It sounded like an air leak so I replaced the fuel tubing and pressure line. I even changed the fuel tank. Still does it. The carb is cast into the crankcase so there is nothing to seal there. I am thinking bearings. The car does run real strong until it shuts down. I posted the problem on the engine thread. I am getting frustrated.

Have you checked the backplate for any leaks? I assume the glowplug and compression are good.

Backplate tight, new plug and good pinch.

I richened it some and it ran longer. I was at 2 5/8th out and that had worked before. Now I am at 2 3/8ths and well see how it runs this Saturday against the 19T's.

It sounds like a vapor lock. The thing has so little mass that the heat can quickly soak into the carb and crank and boil the fuel. Easy test for it, if it quits and doesn't want to restart dump some fuel on the carb and crankcase to cool it off and it should start right up if it was vapor locked. Only cure is to run it cooler.

I'll be fiddling with my Sirio 09 in offroad this week end. I still need to finish the Spada to get it tune up and running. I really want to see the AMR Speed 09 engine to see if its a worthy upgrade engine to try, both off and onroad.

I ran it so rich that it wouldn't shift... couldn't get the rev's. Still shut down at the 5 minute (there abouts) mark. I hope new engine bearings help... I just want the old performance back... still scratching my head over this one.
