Default serpent se12 evo 1 troubles

what does it mean when a engine is idling and it starts to rise? it's rich? lean?

the engine seems to run hot no matter what, but while i was racing it last week it ran fine and didn't loose power.

could the glow plug temperature rating effect it? it's a 5 novarrosi, but like i said it runs hot so could a colder plug lower the temp of the engine?

how do i stop it from dieing when i enter the pits? (i enter and once it idles for 1 sec or longer it dies. low end is rather rich, but the weird thing is it doesn't bog down when i do the 10 second then WOT it test)

this thing runs so hot that when i turned it off today smoke came out of the pipe tip (AND THE ENGINE WASN'T EVEN RUNNING!!!!!)


i pinch the fuel line and it starts to rev up at about 1 second after i pinch the line.

i noticed the novarrossi number 5 plug was a brown colour and a little cloged up. i noticed this effect but 5X's worse when i broke in a rb c12. could it be that this engine needs to be broken in again? (it's a second hand engine.)

with glowplug in when i spin the flywheel it shows more signs of compression than my "babyed" RBc12.
