am i the only one having a hell of a time tuning this engine? it runs like a switch. you try to give it just a little gas and it runs like full throttle. not very linear at all. when i fatten up the bottom end, it loads up and stalls. nothing but problems since day one when i received it and it wasn't sealed from the factory! i run 20% sidewinder, the silver shim in florida where it is hot as hades. and an os hot plug. sts d3.

I'm in florida to do you see any fuel any where coming out sounds like you have an air leak would be my first guess if you can call geoff at projectzen 310 544 1508 sometimes its easyer to talk to some one in pearson

Hey!!! You're not the only one!!!

I used liquid gasket maker and sealed up the carb where the o-ring is and also seal the high end needle where it connects to the carb. It did fix the leak BUT!! I give up!!

So good luck to you.

Take out mid-speed needle and check if the two o-rings still there.

Well, I broke in the D3, and I have to say I'm impressed. The motor is very strong in the bottom end, however this is the first time I have run a turbo motor so I'm not sure if this is why.

Matched with my NTC3, this motor seems to perform quite well. I will know more after Sunday's races

i definately see fuel leaking around the front bearing. it leaks like mad. i double oringed the carb where it meets the case. i guess it's a trip to the auto parts store, than to the dumpster if that doesn't work.

Go to buy one #607 (7x19x6) "double contact rubber seals" bearing. You can buy it from ProjectZen. Don't take out any rubber seal. Just replace it with the old one. It should stop leaking.

Yeah, i just ordered the p/s and crank from the D3R for my D3. It was all ordered from Project Zen. I cant wait to get it and try it out. A buddy of mine just bought a REX .12 RER 12 S3, and is planning on getting it modded. So I hope that my new parts on my D3 will help me keep up with the right gearing and improve on my driving skills...

thanks all-jason

I'm not sure if this has been answered elsewhere, but can anyone shed any light on this?

I ran the STS motor for the first time on the weekend. I initially had an RB #7 plug in it but wanted to try a 5. I had a Novarossi #5 so I put that in and when the car came back from the race there was what looked to be a fuel leak near the top of the motor. I naturally thought I hadn't tightened the plug up properly. So I checked it and ran the motor and it was still leaking. I checked to see if there was some crud in there that stopped the plug bottoming out but there wasn't.

I changed back to the RB plug and the leak was gone.

Can you guys tell me what plugs you use and if you have had trouble like this before?

Cheers,

Mike.
