Lean out the bottom end. If it then idles fast adjust the idle screw

Bulletdays, get your expert local rc friend to tune and teach you their trick on this matter. Because engine tuning for beginner is abit tricky.

If you are new to nitro, I would suggest getting a OS engine. It is easier to tune.

Yep gotta agree with you Jeffreylin....I reckon its tuning as well, but I`ve also seen these type of symptoms caused by stale/bad fuel.

[setting bottom end, clear motor out a few times and listen to the idle for about 30 seceonds, if it goes up then the bottom is to lean, if it goes down and wants to die then it to rich. another way is to do the clearing it out and pitching the fuel line right at the carb, revs up and dies right away , to lean, if it sits there and bubbles along for some time then to rich, should have a nice steady increase it speed before it dies, hope this helps. you might check the fuel tank seal you might not be getting enough back pressure, this will cause alean problem too and all the carb tuning in the world is not going to help if its the lid.

Default Setup for Rubber tires

Hey all,
Got a bit confuse reading throught some of the threads...Hope someone can clearify for me. Do I need special pulley, or wheel offsets if I run rubber tires?

What would be a good setup for running rubber?

Maybe Andy is also right, it could be the fuel.

Thanks guys.

You need to use the optional 24T pulley (included in the kit) in front and the longer 387 side belt (not included in the kit).

guys, as you know, the throttle for the car is prone to bumps of another car coz the throttle servo is placed on the side. even when theres protector bar, do you think that the bar can handle the force from a bump? and i just tested the car, the servo horn broke. what do you think should i do? is there a hop-up fot this (servo horn) coz i use the stock servo horn included in the kit. futaba. its a plastic. has any1 of u guys expericenced this? and any1 broke the throttle servo?

Default Hey PME

My throttle servo horn also got broke when someone hit me from the side. I use the same horn as you did. I bought a new servo horn which is much ticker and flexible i forgot the brand its color yellow, i hope this one works now.

this mod should take care of it. the two al. blocks are kind of bulky so i changed them to four 0.25" O.D. al. posts. it work just as good and is easier to make yourself.
