Let me know how it goes, I nearly bought the black pixy, but found the Nova cheaper than the pixy and bought.
You are kidding me, right, I found a ROAR Legal one for 200 dollars some where, I cant remember though?

So far, Ive run approx 10-15 tanks, I ferget exactly...anyway..there is still a high amount of "pinch" with the plug out. I still have not started leaning mine out.Not many places around here clean enough to run a TC and the two tracks closest are an hour away, so I havnt put in as much time with this as I have with my 1/8 offroad.

Thanks for the reply NitroOB4You.

I have a 3 port Rossi with over 5 gallons thru and it's still tight as heck at TDC.

it is good with no shims for 30% and that to run a lower % , one would have to have the head button machined down. I can say, as for right now, it is running great. Although I have only run 8 tanks worth so far...despite beautiful weather, I have been sick all week and havn't had desire to do anything
Hi the Pixy IS OVERSHIMMED! The head clearance is around 0.020"with NO SHIMMS. this will be good for 20-30% Nitro.

The only way to check is to measure it.
Take out the plug and insert a piece of solder.
Turn over the motor fully so that the piston flattens the end of the solder
Measure the flat spot with a vernier or a micrometer

It should be 0.018" for 16% Fuel or 0.022 for 30% fuel.

If the head clearance is too big the motor will overheat as the fuel burning happens after the piston has gone over the top (advanced timing).

I put a little over a gallon on mine and it was still tight as new. Still got stuck at TDC even with a big 12V motor Ofna.

Default pixxi

I just started running this pixxi I don't know whats a good temp yet, but i was racing this weekend another guy was running a pixxi and he was very very fast he was temping at about 265F. I run 30min mains and i think thats to hot for me. That 265f was after a 15min main. I don't know about the turbo botton i'm looking for one to. Tone

I have the 3 port Pixi too. I agree the shim that comes installed is too much. Never could top out on the straight. So now I am running with out the shim with 20% and a turbo plug. The turbo button came with the engine. So I don't know where you can purchase the turbo button.

My temps are at the max of 245f at the end of a 5 minute qualifier.
