hey everybody my problem is my performance it sucks ive tried everything the acceleration takes for ever at a stand still, i hit the gas, the rpms slowly go up, and then it starts to move i want it to be responsive responsive enough to do wheelies plus it bogs at top speed, so its slow i a
djusted the settings to death with no luck ive just upgraded to a tuned pipe so that may help, but i havent got a chance to use it yet anyone with a tuned pipe have a good idea of what my settings should be?? i know they vary but im desperate

I think that maybe you should take time to tune it 1-2 clicks at a time. I think your running it to lean. If that doesn't work then try to get the guy at your local hobby shop to tune it for you.

Mine acts like that until it gets warmed up real good. Are you running yours long enough to warm it up(@ 3 mins or so)?

Thanks for the help ... i probably should be more precise when i tune it..also, i think that since its winter, it might not even warm up to begin with since its so cold and i genererally only run one or two tanks through it at a time..thanks for all your advice...do most people cut holes where tere tanks are so they can fuel it quicker?? i havent and thats why i never run it that long..it sucks so bad to have to take the body off every 10 minutes
...The guy who always has a question...

After you install the tuned pipe you will need to richen up you high & low needle jet settings a bit. Yes you are right in that you may not be allowing the "Pede" to come up to temp. as it should. It should always be up to full operating temp. before you attempt to make any adjustments whatsoever to the carb. Make your adjustments by little more than a 1\16 to an 1\8 of a turn and run the truck for several minuits before attempting to make any further changes, as the engine will take a bit to respond to the new carb. settings. Most of all be patient with it and I'm sure that before long you will begin to see the potential of the PRO 15 unfold before your very eyes! When this engine is properly tuned you can drive around all day long on two wheels!
As far as the body on fill ups go...here is what I did. Remove your drivers side window, drill a hole in the rear window behind the fuel lid, loop a zip tie through the fuel tank lid so you have something to hook to, and last but not least...make yourself a tool with a hook on the end out of an old wire coat hanger or similar material. This will enable you to reach through that hole in the back window, pull open the tanks lid and fuel up the "Pede" right through the drivers window with the body on via your fuel bottle. I've been doing it this way for several years now and it sure beats the snot out of pulling the body off every time I need to fuel up!

For fuel ups I cut out the windshield and it is easy to get access to tank. It also provides better cooling for your engine since the airflow is blocked w/ shield. It doesnt look stupid either.

either way is cool :ill probly wait untill it warms up to do either because i want to see if i have problems keeping it cold or not :right now i dont, and id like to use the other way, but if i have cooling problems, itd be smart to cut a hole in the windsheild...thanks
Owww...I spilled some nitro in my eye
