Default Need more run time. Novarossi P5xlt

My motor has 1.5 gallons on it. Run the 2096/41021 pipe and manifold. I am at 10:20. 6mm restrictor. No fuel filter or exhaust gas cooler. Aluminum flywheel. How can I increase run time. My tune is good. TLR 3.0 buggy

One of the biggest impacts to fuel consumption is driving style. Try to roll on the throttle as smoothly as possible helps significantly. Clutch setup is also important as an overly boggy clutch can cause runtime issues.

Nothing wrong with 10:20. But that engine has yet to wake up at only 1.5 gallons.

10:20 is not bad on that motor. Might try the nitro mizer carb inserts. I'm able to get over 11 on my p5 with the 5.4 nitro mizer insert.

I would just like to gain 30 seconds or so. We ran a 10 minute main today so I was fine, but if we ran 20/30 I need a limitless more wiggle room. I was told that anything less than 6mm is a bad idea. Not sure why. I will axe him, lol

What fuel do you run? Choices play a huge roll in runtimes.

i would say if you make more than 10 minutes with a P5 in a buggy, you are very very close to maximum. Very littel can be gaind from here. You will now start to loose speed/laptimes. You have to remeber, if you are in a fight, you will probebly be a bit more on the gas and you will probebly be under 10 minutes. Also, the moast fuelefficient buggy i have ever driven is the Losi. I lost 1 minute runtime from the same engine going from Losi to Mugen.

Which radio do you use and what is your pinion gear?

Which Nitro percentage? When running 30% or higher you should try 25%

You can add negative expo into your throttle on your radio that will help smooth out the trigger. Try -25 to -40. The smaller the Venturi the smaller the tuning window that's why your buddy said not to go below 6. Biggest thing on mileage is trigger response. You can also add .1 shim to the head on your engine this will decrease the pop it has but increase the runtime.

EB mods power plate and add exhaust cooler. This could get u closer. Are your displacement blocks out of tank?

How is that even possible? My mugen's drivetrain is way more smoother then my old losi.

First off let me state that I am not a losi fan AT ALL. But. Losi has the freest drive train out. I think a lot of it has to do with the very small bearings they use. I have seen time and time again people go to losi and gain run time or go from losi and lose run time.
