    Engine temperatures

    Hallelujah! The Nitro troubleshooting and tuning chart And me have become very good friends today! I think I nailed it! My question is. After getting the tune down perfectly when measuring the engine Temperature at the glow plug I'm only getting 202 to 210, Sometimes even in the 190s, Depending on how much gas is in the tank, but on the outside of the cooling fins I'm getting the right temps, 240 to 270. According to the chart everything is good. It idles, which it is never done properly. The performance is good with the exception of a slight sputter on the low-end when going full throttle from a standstill. Input please!

    Take into consideration the average ambient temp in Ca. has been 40-50 degrees lately.
    If you're running temps of 240-270 without a wrapped cooling head theres a possibility
    you're running too lean.
