alright, thanks that helps a lot When you say adjusting 1 hour, isn't it 1/12? Alsoc when the settings are for example 4 out, that means 4 turns (12 hours or 1 full circle) correct. This is what i have been doing and i just want to make sure
Thanks

There is no reason to make your engine run hotter than 200 degrees if it is performing well.

I raced with a guy who had an RB that ran at 190 degrees and was faster than most everyone on the track.

How is your engine running?

make sure you have the newer tank, orings installed underthem, i dont know how long yours are but my pressure line and throttle line are fairly short, like 6 inches each.

it's leaning out at the end. is your car not running well when the tank is full? if so, my guess is your engine is a little rich, or your pressure line is too long.

gentleman81,
My STS RS3 Non-Turbo motor just TQ'ed and won the mains in todays club racing, www.edmontonrc.com . The motor is plenty fast, the only trouble I have had is keeping it idling when in for fuel stops...pull in stop and motor dies...re-fires at once and stays lit untill the next fuel stop!! Have tried different heat ranges of plugs and various shim hights...nothing yet. I feel it is solvable with a little more work...maybe bottom too rich and loading??? Dino...sugestions. Other than the tuning problem...which is probably me more than the motor, it runs with all the motors in our club, OS TR's, Rossi Pixi's, Nova Rossi's. The only motor, at our track that is quicker is a M.S. Nova Mega and I think if I were to get the bottom sorted it would be a different story. For the $$$ best bang for the buck...imho.
