Talking

Rose,
Most people got their way of runnin in.
For me(just a reference).

First I will break-in the engine.
Just let it idle for about 4 tank (about a hour) at a very rich timing and low rpm and engine should not cut.

After this then I run-in 3/4 trotttle at a rich timing first and slowly when you feel power coming then lean the engine.

(well I have being doing this since Gary Tan taught me 6 yrs ago. and all my engine last more than 10 races but I usually don't lean my engine to the max.)

Well you can go around and ask people for their comment.some will said these is wrong and their way is the correct one and so on...........

no problem Rose, u can run the engine like it is
and come race day, maybe i can set it up for you again.
for your 2 speed, just try to set up such that when u exit the sweeper into the straight, the 2speed is enaged....

My car crashed very badly just now at MS. It happened during high speed (2nd speed) at the straight where suddenly the car went out by itself and bang the timber and fence very very hard. People over there all get shocked. I was lucky that it only broke the front shock tower. Everybody suspected that the receiver or the controller batt is flatted. But they are wrong because the receiver batts still got 6.34V and I just changed the controller batts this morning. I managed to solved the problem this evening when I wanted to install the fail safe unit. The actual cause was due to the receiver crystal dropped-off. Maybe due to vibration. I had been running electric car for many yrs and never had this problem before. Does u guys had this problem before when running nitro? Is it common when on nitro? Here I can say that this TG10R is damp tough, same like my TB Evo. And it's worth buying.

Jack are u joining the Tamiya gas car race this Sunday? Cause I need someone to become my mechanic.

Sorry I'm unable to go to MS this Saturday. Anyway did guys know what is the best rim to use for nitro car. The one I usually used for electric car seems not tough. It bent though with slight impact.

Get the graphite ones...check out with Ben or Winnie... More expensive but more durable too...
