    Tune up Help with my new Revo 3.3

    Hey guys. I'm new here, hv just got my new Revo 3.3. I hv done the break in procedure as per the manual for 5 tanks. Now, i'm facing problem with tune up and overheating of the engine. The engine starts up fine but it won't take load and the car won't move much. Also i think excess fuel comes out of exhaust pipe. I tried turning the high speed needle 1/4 turn leaner and richer but no appreciable difference. I'm concerned becoz the first 6 tanks the engine ran fine, it was taking load and the car was running fine, but then now it won't even move and there is no power to make any kind of run. And i'm using 16% nitro fuel for my model. Please help and suggest some solution. Thanks.

    Keep leaning the hsn 1/8th increments to see if any performance improvements. When its hitting 2nd gear began to lean out the lsn needle for max performance then adj idle to a lower idle apeed if needed. Also after break in it may be wise to change the glow plug. Check YouTube as states earlier, many helpful tips! Good luck and report progress!
