What OS and browser are you using?

In general clicking on the download button should work. If not right click on the Title of the vido and choose "Save as..." or "Save link as..."

Default Texas Biggie 2004

Did anybody see this posted at mytsn yet?

Brandon McNally had the fastest time in 200mm with a 15 lap 5:00 run. Unfortunately the body shell was 1mm below the minimum height and the time was disallowed. His time would have been over 3 seconds faster than his closest competitor. Brandon will start 3rd with his Serpent 710, it is powered by a Nova Mega SS-12 and grip is provided by Ellegi tires.

Looks like Team Serpent is still formidable without Ralph Burch. Go Team Serpent !

I just read that report.
I'm glad to see Team Serpent is still doing good here in the US.
Is Ralph Burch racing at the Texas Biggie?
I didn't see his name on the list.
Is he still racing Nitro?
What company is he racing for now?
I heard he was racing for Kyosho now, but I don't think that's been confirmed.

Thanks.

1 mm? Hmmm ... if I look at some of the innovative designs of the rear wings on some of our friends' bodywork, 1mm seems a slither of a hair that would not make a difference

Don't get me wrong, I'm trying to encourage all of us to stick by the rules even though we all love the outlaw class

OK, I'm off to the track ... byeeee!

Good luck Schrijver99...

I ran my 710 for the second time this weekend, the first being a bit of a let down in the way that I could not complete half a tank due to the noise... I ran it in the street, what a monster... I had it very rich, it never got out of first gear, but wow it was fast. I then leaned it out a little, WOW. It got to second and really flew!!! I got such a fright, I misjudged the kerb and hit it flat out. My glass car must be made out of that industrial heat treated stuff. The car bounced off, with small cracks in the body but not even a mark on the car. I hit it flat on. Titanium glass is good...

Hi all,

I need some help figuring out an engine issue.

Serpent 710
new 2106 NovaMega SX12 3P-SS
#5 glowplug
Standard head shim included with engine
Sidewinder Fuel 20% nitro, 12% oil (old fuel from last season)
H2503 HARD .12 Adjustable Inline Shark Pipe Set

Engine has only had 4~5 tanks of fuel through it before my first race weekend, so I think it is probably not fully broken in.


Engine temp was high during the raceday, and fluctuated a fair bit during runs. Temp was anywhere in the range of 240~290C.
Engine was very sensitive to high-speed needle (HSN) changes.
We had to richen the HSN nearly 2 turns to get the temp down.
I could not make 5 minutes runtime. Even during a day of racing, the engine would occassionally seize up with the piston at TDC (due to pinch I think). I tried different plugs... no major changes.
I tried different LSN settings and idle screw settings... worked out fairly well.

The major problem I was having was during my main.
Every single time I pitted for fuel, I would go around 3 corners, and then the engine would flame out in the same spot.
I tried to rev the engine higher to stop this from happening, but it kept happening.

Some gave a tentative answer, but I want to ask around to see it if makes sense. Since the engine is still very tight and running hot, after fueling when the cold fuel reached the carb (at approximately the same spot on the track), the cylinder would contract a bit due to the sudden temp change and stall the engine.
Does this make sense?

Can anyone offer any suggestions why temp is so high, runtime is so low, and engine keeps stalling a few corners after fueling?

Please help...

I think the answer is pretty clear to me......... You haven't properly finished the break-in process............. I would suggest you go to the Break- In engines thread, in the engines forum, and start all over again with the factory settings, using RB's method (WOT).
