I am getting a much higher temp reading with my Traxxas temp gauge than with my laser thermometer at the glow plug by as much as 50 degrees different. Anyone else seen this ?
I am sure I am not overheating but the traxxas gauge reads up to 280.
I've argued the following point: I've taken the Traxxas on-board temp gauge and compared it to other thermometers and found it to be accurate. However, the accepted location of taking an engine temp is at the glow plug so that is where the infrared gauge works better. The Traxxas is outside the head and depending on where the sensor is located it can read different temps. Use temperature as a guide but not the tell-all.
