I dont believe half of what this guy says on here, besides, whats the difference between buggy fuel and on-road fuel? AFAIK there is no such thing as just buggy fuel.

From my understanding, the less oil you run the more power you get. You have to be careful with the 8% oil fuels, too lean and the motor may blow

This is just my opinion and I could be wrong.

yes there is. usually buggy fuel contains more oil than onroad fuel.

as quetstorm says, lessoil = more power, but it can shorten the life of your engine if the settings ain't 100% right.

Another Sunday of racing, except today my first gear one-way decided to pack it in. Was grabbing intermittently and the engine got over revved a couple/few times before I took it off the track. SO, I replaced the bearing and went to start the engine and it wouldn't start until i leaned the main at least 1 full turn. I put in a new plug.
Mixture settings totally messed up. Main event wasn't good, I didn't have time to retune it.
I checked the compression and it was good, still can feel the pinch and the rod play seems ok. Cylinder head torque checked.
Anyone have any ideas why my mixture settings got messed up? Something to do with the over revving?
Going to tear it down and inspect it this week for sure.

RUDEBOY:
I run my main jet needle 4-5 turns out, really depends on temp, altitude, pipe choice. Get it running and drive it and adjust main for best power, adjust low speed for idle quality, do the 'pinch test' for idle mixture to get a ballpark idea.

dont know about the factory setting but 6-7 turn on LSN and 5-6 turn on HSN is pretty close tuning depends on what pipe you are using.

Team kamikaze bought a 2607 pipe from you for my Red dot Engine, put it on and tested on Saturday.loads of power had to come of trottle, could not believe the increase in power. I was using skyline pipe before with engine and was blazing up the track but now i am literally burning up track and stands.

Looks like the engine is finally broken in, that's why the tuning went rich.

So, the mixture needs change when the engine is fully broke in. Thought i had some weird voodoo going on in it.
Is this peculiar to this engine or same for most/all?

You can use Mega/picco plugs. The same ones they use in the ZX-12 and 21.
