corvettecrazy i wish you the best of luck with this engine. This is the worst thing that can happen to an RC racer. It overheats very easy, doesn't have any power at all and has a one needle carb so the first thing to change in your car should be that engine

i'm running a .15FE (pittiful engine I know)
A hot plug works well in just about any aplication, when you set the bottom end needle rich like it should be you need a hot plug to regain the correct fuel burn to get your punch back.

Well, down here in FL it's nice all year. The lowest we've gotten to is maybe 60* and our engines run fine. We worry more about hot weather.

I am planning on replacing the engine but I seem to be the cost of the engine short. I have panned an engine change since it was new but i just dont have the money and my Christmas list is already pretty full.
