Just got through tanks three and four. Eveything went great, although I did burn up one glow plug. Other than that some kids showed up with a RC10GT. Nice little car but even though I haven't let my truck switch into second, the RC10 seemed slow:wtf: I think he had some wear issues, he never heard of after run oil. Oh teah the highest engine temp was 250.

If you burned up one of your glow plugs then you probably want to consider running it a little richer. Your glow plug should foul from all the excess fuel in the cylinder rather than burning the electrode from lack thereof.

Ok, I was beginning to think you were going to burn up your engine before you actually got it broken in.

THanks for the concern, so far, I have made it a point to keep it a little rich. One thing though when she is all warmed up the idle isn't steady, it jumps up and down, any advice?

Finnish breaking it in.. Another 3-4 tanks. The idle should even out a bit. My idle was set way high from the factory.

Check for a fuel line leak and make sure you are closing your fuel lid tight.
