    Probably from your fuel. What type are you running?

    I run VP Master Basher 20% fuel 14% oil. But I pulled it out and it was like plastic red pieces. used same exact fuel type and mix from day 1.

    Yeah the red stuff is probably the internal protective element of the fuel gumming up in the engine. And being 14% is too much oil content. Run between 10-12% :-)

    It was to hard to be gummed up and it wasn't stuck in there was just sitting there and like I said it's rock hard some type of plastic and I'm gonna take it out in the morning and see how she runs.

    LHS. The owner said they get ten cases at a time and get a good deal. Then they actually pass it on to the customers
