Thanks Dynamite

Mine's the wc edition and yes it has the plastics spacers. 2 of the went out of alignment during screwing in. Somehow, i figure out that the blue caps were useless for wheel adjustment so as long as i got them in to hold the pillow balls i guess its ok.

Thanks Nimo for the grease advice!

Any help or advice for me?
The tip about applying grease is really good.
I had the same problem with them becoming really tight as they got around half way in, but i used an allen driver from a bicycle allen key set (the sort which all fold back into the handle like a pocket knife). Because the handle on this allen driver is rather large, it made it easy to get the required leverage to seat the screw.

Hey guys! Just came back from the race truck!
A couple of thoughts to share with...

The KYOSHO lock nuts included in the kit seem to come loose on the 3racing front universals!!! I wonder why...


I am running a new Sirio .12 5 port TUP Evo 2, with the Kyosho SC manifold/exhaust system... This engine looks impossible to tune... At one time it seems too lean, then too rich!!!
I tested the tank before racing and it did not seem to leak...

I will add a pressure chamber between the exhaust and tank... but I am afraid it will not solve the problem...

Any of you guys having similar probs?

I am pretty sure it's your tank. I've lost 2 engines that way and you have all the same symptoms.

But the tank did not seem to leak...
I put it underwater and blew with all I could.
Only a few bubbles from the lead... when I managed to give me 100%... However this is normal it you take into consideration that the tank is constantly pumping fuel to the engine. Also, when the lead has a problem, it usually shows when you block the exhaust to send fuel in the carb. A faulty lead would blow air and fuel...

I will try the pressure chamber and a friend that is an expert tuner..... What can I say..... I hear about the tank probs and the Sirio being impossible to tune... but this is crazy!!!

Don't know if this will help, but a few in the UK did have problems with the earlier carbs on Sirio motors, they changed them to an alloy carb (possibly Rossi) and it cured the fuel pick up and mixture problems

Default Sirio Tuning

I've had no problems with my Sirio yet. Im using the stock carb and it tunes fine, different but fine. I agree with JeffreyLin, it sounds like your tank. $20 bucks for a new tank or $180+ for another motor? It won't hur tto try another tank rather than find out later after you blow your engine.
