HI guys.

I got my new picco .26 red dot the other day and this is the first engine I've ever broken in so a little nervous I am. Don't want to do any damage.

I took all the bits from the 3.3 and the picco is fitted. I put the pull start on it first but with no joy getting it to start I put the EZ start back on.

Eventually it fired up so I was trying to get it to a basic tune so I could burn off a tank of fuel, just ticking over as per instructions. I began messing with the needles and went all over the place with them breifly. So I tried to take the needles back to factory. I'm having a problem though with the low-speed needle. ofna/picco state 'between 10.5 and 11.5 turns out. But the following video is with the low-speed out at just 5.5 turns!! And the idle is all over the place!



Sorry about the quality.

That doesn't look right does it? What am I doing wrong?

Please help as this engine cost me a fortune and i don't want to **** it up.

Adam

Try

Lsn: 2 turns out from flush of the ball end
Hsn: 2-1/2 to 3 turns out from closed
air gap: approx 1mm (idle)
These are baseline settings and will vary depending on region, fuel, etc.

Hope this helps

Some other guy on the Traxxas forum came up with this

Turns out I had the wrong instructions!
