It's always important that you get the maximum power from your engine. RC trucks depends on their engine and power source in order to give the best running condition. That's why it's important to maintain the engine in order to get the full potential of the truck. No matter what the model and design of your RC truck, it still needs proper care and maintenance in order to last longer and become competitive. There are some tips that you can follow in order for you to tune up you engine.
First, always ensure that there are no air leaks in the engine. To do this, use a high-temperature gasket or silicon sealants which can be bought in almost all RC hobby stores. Be sure to apply the sealant into the areas that are prone to leakage, this are the carburetor, the exhaust manifold, and the back plate. These parts are all found against the engine block of your RC trucks. This will help you avoid bigger damage to you engine. Air leaks are often unnoticeable but in time can expand the damage to a more noticeable engine breakage.
Next thing you need to check always is the motor break-in. Always check the proper break-in procedure in order to obtain a good running condition. To do this, try to run at least 3 tanks of fuel through your engine, then maintain the temperature at about 140 to 160 degrees. Avoid going top speed while running but constantly change the rate of the speed. This will help you check if the engine overheats easily. Also, try to open the cover of the RC trucks while running to keep the engine ventilated and cool.
There are times where you find your RC trucks running at a weird temperature. Common problems of in the engine includes fast over heating. To fix this, try to tune your engine carburetor slightly "rich". You can also tune the low end, then adjust again at the high end. A common way to avoid easy over heating is to cut holes on the windshield so that the air can easily get inside and cool off the engine.
Tuning the engine of RC trucks needs proper running temperature for every run. Usually, you need to run your truck with an engine temperature of 200 to 210 degrees. Make sure that you keep this temperature, once you exceed this temperature it could be dangerous. You can also lean the engine out to get more power and cooling air.
