Arrow Cooling

Hello I'm a Carson 1:10 nitro driver from The Netherlands. I have a question about the cooling of my car.
When I drive without my body everything goes well. But when I drive with my body on the car my car stops after a few laps. Then the engine gets very very hot, and it stops. My body is almost one complet hole. The only thing I can do, I think, is moving the airfilter to the site, becaus it's in front of the cooler.
Are their people who also have this problem? Any sugestions?

Driving without body shell is of course cooler, but one thing to ask what engine you using? if stock just rich the high end up and everything will be alright.

Sounds like you are running to lean on the High end. Try richening up the high end and see how it goes. You should be in the 240F temp range, maybe at 250 or 260 at the most.
