Jato wont reach the right temps?
Alright, i live in Texas its about 85 degrees F and i'm not sure about my elavation and im running 30% sidewinder v2 nitro fuel, the temps are staying around 150-165 and it seems to be tuned right. Like when i go WOT from a complete stop it doesnt bog or anything it takes off. Ive tried leaning it out and richening it nothing helps. And the lsn is flush. It also will not wheelie the battery pack is in the back. Running anacondas all around about 90% tread left
I know you did this, but double check those needles. You got to run em a little leaner when it's hotter. Has to do with ouside air temp etc etc. Don't want to go into the explanation, but there is one in the forums.
Well i got the temps up to about 180 F but cant get it to go up anymore.
You're running at 180 and you're complaining. That is a good running temperature! How hot do you want it to get?

180 is too cool, it wont allow for proper expansion of the sleeve and will cause excessive wear. I do my best to keep them between 240-250 and my engines seem to last longer than most.

I have noticed it does better with the body on though, are you checking your temp in the correct place with the body on?

You drive with a body on so tune with the body on...

Under 200 is definitely a bad thing.... Also may want to verify the temp gauge.....
thanks for the read Nitronaught. Makes good sense.
