    Trx 2.5 Problem

    Hey Guys i'm new to cars !

    I got my first car used from a buddy of mine about a week ago, Well it had no motor so i went and got the Trx 2.5 for this Nitro Rustler.

    Started on the break in procedure and everythings been fine until the 4th tank, Full throttle while counting to 1 thousand 1, 1 thousand 2, 1 thousand 3 Gently slow to a stop.

    Well its normally about every other run but before it happens, but it doesnt always happen but before i get to 1 thousand 3 while Wide Open the motor just dies like it runs out of fuel, i can walk over and it will fire back up and i start over but its getting agervating, I'm using the Traxxas Top Fuel 20% Nitro and my needle setting are 1 1/2 out from closed on the LSN and 4 out from closed on the HSN.

    My temps vary between 160 to 190

    Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance,
