Finally got my OS .15 CV-X broke in. I was running it around the school playground. Man this little dude has alot of power. I was very impressed. I was taking its temp during every tank and at the start during the first and second tanks it was about 170 degrees. Towards the end I was getting about 220-230. I put the body on and ran it around and temps jumped to about 270 on the pavement and 300 in the grass. I thought this was too hot so I cut half of my windshield out. My truck also has the grill cut out with some screen in it. Anyway the next day I ran it around a construction site. It seemed to have tons of power. I was having a blast going up and over 5-6 inch curbs and climbing boulder hills. The thing was unstoppable. I checked the temps frequently and it seemed to be around 220-230. I pulled it in and topped off the tank to go do some hill climbing. Thats when the trouble started. I filled it up and ran it over to a curb and it just revved without climbing up and over. I let it cool down for awhile but same problem. I havent taken it apart yet but was wondering what might be wrong. Is it possible for the clutch shoes to wear out in 2-3 tanks? My theory is that they were hot when I stopped it and they fused together while cooling down. Can that happen? Any Ideas? I have the MIP clutch shoes and I have them on the inside holes with a leading edge engagement.
