    revo 3.3 question

    So its been while since I have driven my revo as I didn't have time to put it back together, anyways I finally did and I put 2 tanks though it ,but I noticed something weird as I was driving it, it was reaching temps of around 240-250. I was wondering is this normal on a day where its super sunny and around 85-90 deg and its not lean if anything its still rich as I can see smoke most of the time. It is also not bogging or anything it was actually running really good. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    300 is way to hot, anywhere between 220 and 270 is good. If it seized it may be to late.

    What he said. You want it running right at 250 and 270 is max. If you're seeing 300 then you're way too lean or you have a bad engine bearing.
