Default G4S .12 running temp?

Hi i am in a remote area and know one has the G4S and I dont want to bother with the LHS as I got the car elsewhere and I have only been running .21/.28 buggies, I just wanted to know whats a good run temperature for the .12 and when tuning it will run for about 20-30 secs then die I am using a A3 plug and factory settings, maybe she is a little to rich? any suggestions would be appreciated

Tune it for response and perfomance and a guideline of 100/105 degc is OK.
The engines that come with it are SH .12 and they are very nice engines.
The std clutch springs are a bit soft and to me feel like they bog the engine down a bit ,this also agrevates engine temps.
Seeing you play around with offroad buggies try 1mm or 1.1mm clutch springs.
My sons Le Mans we use 1 ally shoe with 1.1mm clutch springs.
But it would depend on track or surface you run on.If you have good traction the harder springs would work well.
