I don't belive that engine is fully run in (yet the auction said it had been raced ? if I remember correclty )

Take plug out and turn engine over by hand (as per instructions) there should only be small amount of resistance as piston passes TDC. If there is more then slight resistance then engine needs to be run in some more, id check conrod bushing if its not run in and was raced (mine took a LOT longer to break in)

ALSO - if you want PM me your ICQ/MSN or whatever details Im in OZ also - have a D5

hehe Maybe the guy can run engines in quicker then me But I do remember dino saying 2+LTrs required for D5 and that was true with mine. I think his picked up a great deal, the guy selling it possibly raced a engine that was still tight hence not performing and decided to sell it

Just complete break in and change the conrod and hes got himself a rocket woohoooo

If you continue to rev the crap out of it and its not fully broken in you may see a snapped crank pin.... so as per previous message just check the pinch with plug out and complete breakin if required.

I get parts from http://rc-mushroom.com conrod is cheap enough so its worth replacing it after breakin (or a few months after, depends how much you use it)

Engine comes with two shims, if you run 16% you need to take out the cooper shim which is 0.2mm (the aluminium shim is 0.3mm)

Rabbit, you need to finish break in then. Sounds like the person tried running engine before breakin complete - didn't like performance and sold it. she will come alive once you have broken it in Nice work ! (hahha thats funny you read my message about that ebay advert )

Brain, Yeah it was a Sirio TRP PRO .12 (3port), conrod bushing wore terrible and carb turned to junk in around 6 months (others have experienced this - see the sirio thread). I believe STS is MUCH better quality. My Piston/Sleeve is still fine though, might ebay it $1NR.. lol..

Hello,

Anyone know how much for a piston and sleeve here in Australia for a D3? I got quoted $85. Is this a fair price?
