Default I cant stop my car from stalling!

Running a Picco Boost .21 engine

I can idle fine, I can accelerate fine but when I let go of the trigger and roll for a bit the engine gets all sad sounding and cuts off.

I have tryed opening up the idle but any more and the wheels freespin.

Tried richening up the low and high speed needles without much luck at all.

Done the pinch test and I get 5 seconds before cut off.

Any ideas?

Check your clutch for a broken spring or bad bearing, it usually the cause if it not a tuning issue.

Seems my idle was too wide and the low end needle was too rich, Assume after the car accelerated it was flooding with fuel and burning out.

Does this make sense if it was the problem

Also when is a good time to replace clutch shoes, do they wear out ?

Yep, engine gets loaded up w/ fuel because of rich LSN and chokes itself out. Try and set idle gap to 0.5mm w/ restrictor out if you run one, then tune LSN so it drops to a nice steady idle.

Can't help with clutch shoe wear because I run Buku clutch. I don't think they do wear!
