The exhaust gasket sometimes breaks and blocks the pipe. Try a buddy's pipe and see if there is a difference.

Well I just started my breakin on the Red Dot and it lives up to the hype. I have a Murnan Modified and on the second tank my car shifted. I richened the HSN 1/2 turn from factory setting and I haven't changed it and it keeps getting faster.

17/60, 23/56 for a big size track with at least 200ft straightaway.
Hope this helps.

I have about 2 galons on mine. Im not an expert tuner, by far, I know I overheated it a couple of times. One time I was trying a new pipe and the engine came off the track at 360 degrees. I too was worried about the engine, as my previous expirience with Piccos wasnt so good. But I havent had any problems yet, and Im even thinking about getting another one.

I would suggest you replace the Con Rod at 2 gallons if you overheated your engine, other than that it should last you a while.

I put the red dot in my nt1 yesterday and man i have to say this engine is just as fast as my max sl3, well before it blew up, i put a few tanks in at idle, and about 5 tanks at half throtle on the starter box, put it on the ground for a few more tanks and this thing is pulling hard and still alot of smoke comming out the exaust, will see what happens in the next few days as i lean it out some more, by the way i'm using my max 2602 pipe and header seems to be working really good, still can't belive this engine is $200!! Its not as nice as the max and doesn't look and feel as precise as the max but who cares its just as fast though

Your break in is a little long for this engine, the engine is ready to go after 3 tanks.

If that is the only pipe you tried then you haven't seen the full potential of the motor yet.

While being on the question of pipes, has anyone tried the ofna/picco .12r part # 51900 model pipe on the engine?

I asked that question a few weeks ago and didn't get a response. I saw that Nitrohouse has 'em for $60. I did get the 2067, but haven't got past the heat cycles as far as break-in. A fellow racer that I'll see at the track this weekend has a new 51900 in his parts box. I'm gonna see if I can try it out to compare.
