i use 30% and the plug is a C7TC so its the same heat range as a os p7.


freefallmarine: i use the big carby insert and a big pipe. it seems to have heaps more down low and in the mid range like that. mine is a 5 port though.

I used Josh Cyrul's wot break in method. there was a total of about 8 tanks of easy throttle, and 3 for final tuning. i went through a 1/2 gallon of fuel when said and done. Your gonna love this motor.

found a problem with them.

the 3 that i have seen (5 ports) all have broken heads.including mine. and its always the same cooling fin. mines had about 8 litres but the other 2 have only had about 2 litres. so it looks like a factory fault.

yeah. the os .12 tz is nice. I got a 5 port from rc-toro while they had them on specials. Too bad I don't see that kind of deals anymore

Yeah, I'm running the 3-port version for ROAR reasons and like I said, it still pulls hard. It has about 1.5 gallons now.

Tower hobbies should have them a little cheeper, i think. But they dont have them in stock yet. Also most LHS should be able to get them through great planes at the same time tower gets them.
