hello,

I am replacing my head shims in my force 32. How many 0.2mm head shims should i use for using a MC-8 glow plug and 25% nitro fuel?

Thanks

Looks like you may have to experiment.

Start with stock shims. If engine runs too hot, remove a shim. If runs too cold, add a shim.

**************

And then, once you know the answer, you can reply to the next guy who comes along asking the same question.

hehehehe..................seriously, it would be interesting if you post the results you get with different shims, glowplugs, fuel, etc.

Good luck.

Oh-oh...I goofed when I wrote that....

I should have written:

"Start with stock shims. If engine runs too hot, add a shim. If runs too cold, remove a shim."

I do apologize.
