    engine running rich but extremely hot.

I know the basics of tuning and what to look for when it’s running too rich or lean. originally, the engine was running too lean with temps getting up too 200-260 degrees after only a couple minutes of idling, so tuned it to...

    traxxas 2.5, 2.5R and 3.3 horsepower?

    how much horsepower do these engines make? And what are the differences between 2.5 and 2.5R, some online articles say that the only difference is the blue cooling head but traxxas states that 2.5R makes 0.5 horse power more than the original 2.5, how come?

Q2: does HSN affects idle? Q3: the relation between LSN and idle crew, i can affect idle by either leaning the LSN or...

    I'm running a stock revo 3.3 with optimix 16% fuel I'm running my engine relatively rich and a whole bunch of blue smoke is visible during the acceleration, so i assume that everything should be theoretically fine apart from the fact that the temp was at 280f, i tried richening the needles but...

    Does different nitro content really make a big impact on a car's performance?

    Q1: is it worth purchasing 20 or 25% nitro in Europe when u need a license for it?

Q4: I'm into buying...
