It means that running the engine with WOT , rich it until it reaches about 93C ... wait it cool down after 1 tank ... then repeat it again until it sounds good ?

isnt it better to let the engine iddle half a tank of fuel then run in at half trothle for the reminder of and then at 75 OT rather than WOT from the begining. The point here is to "heat cycle" the engine, not break it. I think WOT method would put too much stress on the new parts would it not?

It is probally the battery pack shifting slightly and losing contact. Try shimming the battery pack to isolate it from moving.

Sweet Mr Mark, Thank you, I think we need to as I think the guys are all so confused that they are super quiet today... Send one to serpent too, so they can keep theirs up to date too.

M8 is the easiest to use as dispaly is very user frendly..
3PK .. one word.. failsafe built in on its PCM, also comes with extension wheel as standar..
Helios.. have not use.. very advance with all programming features (optional)

Rene and myself run the KHM at the 200mm pre WC in Brazil, and our engines where balistic. Awesome bottom power and very very fast in the straigth.

How does the engine compare to the 2106 - is the torque and power much better?

Default Tweak Station & Scale

Hey guys, reading and being a part of this thread has made me realize how important the setup should be.

Where can i buy a scale to get my car to the proper weight. I have the hudy set-up board and am just learning how to use it correctly.

i remmeber MIP made a tweak board to balance the car, but i remmeber that racers had problems with the tweak board. Is there another version or a better one.

thanks guys.
