it engauges harder which will allow u to have harder acceleration. but it depends on the track conditions too. for lower traction you dont want the clutch to come one to hard. it will break traction. but it can be adjusted

cracked my red dot open today for the first time. it runs great but time for some maint.

i notice that i have a burnt brownish residue inside the button head and the head of the piston has this also. along with what may be the begining of pitting. it doesnt seem to be in the metal, just ontop where it should be brown there are some specs of clean metal.

the rod is going in tomorrow, i have heard of something that can be done to brighten the piston head back up, does anyone know?

you want to see brown on top of the piston,this is showing that the motor is burning oil which is a good thing. as far as the pitting goes that shows that you have detinated a plug and may decrease the performance of the motor.try adding a .1 head shim shim

Sam- Recieved the Evo3 today! Thanks for the great service! I took it apart and it was spotless. It fired right up, and idled great. I'll finish break-in and have it ready for this weekend for the Byrons Race at Leisure Hours Hobbies this weekend.
For the record, my 1st JL lasted through appx 7-7.5 gals. from last season till now. I raced an MWS event in Cleveland last weekend, and it started to run hot. It never let up and it tempted at 300* after a .5 hr. main. I ordered a new mill Sun. night. In the meantime, I tore down the original mill and found all was well,, The main bearing is a little gritty, but the P/S fit was way better than I expected!!! I only hope to get the same service outta the JL3!
GoodRacing! Nick

Thanks for the good words, anyway the new EVO 3 engine should last you the same way your old mill does, but I suggest you replace the con-rod on your JL that just run at 300 F degrees, to further prolong the life of that engine.

quick question...just finished the chassis portion of the NT1 and cracked the box open on my JL...whats the best plan of action? do i need to disassemble, oil down the internal parts, and use silicone sealer around the carb neck? how should I approach this?

disassemble to make sure theres no burrs of metal and just grease the neck of the carb for a smooth entry.
