I use the same method of blowing into the pressure line, but I time it once fuel reaches the carb you blow for a half second only. After you do it a few times, it gets easier. This almost always...

Likely a clutch spring that broke. Replace the clutch bearings while you’re at it.

You have to be pretty incompetent to really ruin an engine these days. The way they’re manufactured these days, you’d have to be pretty dumb to screw it up. So the excuse that this method will...

So everyone that touts this as being such a great thing as it saves time and fuel, yet it costs the same as a gallon of fuel. Not to mention any EBIS engine not sold through a factory authorized...

If the engine isnít new and untouched, itís not new. Or rather, anything that the factory didnít do and offer a warranty on.

An engine that’s been through any of these systems is not NEW in the truest sense of the word. I wouldn’t pay NEW prices on an engine treated this way regardless of what the bandwagon says - and...

And I too have over 20 years running engines. I’ve had very different experiences with these engines than many people have. Just because you failed doesn’t mean someone else will too. While I...

I donít want to use a .21 engine in this truck. I never have. I am pretty much seeing what the thing can handle. Now if you want to troll some more, go ahead.

The engine has to be properly setup to use higher Nitro fuels. Glow plug selection is critical. If you use regular hot plugs, they’re too hot. Also, the engines breathing and timings have to be...

Here’s a video of my Jato running with the modified 3.3 Traxxas engine. It’s only had a quart through it (10% nitro 14% oil) and still running rich (214F) pulled 56.7mph with 22/58 gears. I can’t...

2.2 wheels will fit, but they will rub on the suspension/axle mount. I would not bother with 2.2” wheels and go to 2.8” wheels instead, without question.

Lowering the idle gap will lower the idle rpm. It will also change the idle mixture, so both must be balanced. 0.8mm is on the very big side to me. I always start at 0.5mm and go up from there...

Too lean most likely. Tuning must be done in SMALL increments. Like 1/16th turn each adjustment with a run at WOT a few times to then verify if that’s enough or not. Start rich and work lean a...
