Oh you wont see any problems.. lol
Not now you wont. Those micronized particles comin out of the exhaust that you cant see.. thats your engine's piston/ slee and your money flying out!

I dont think any of the engines are really meant to go over 300 except for the ones that cost an arm and a leg.

I try to keep mine around 250 for the most part and go up to 280 when I wanna try for like a high speed run

I try to keep mine at 270 most of the time but it was hot that day and I was really abusing the engines.

Junked the engine DAMN!

HMMMM You just made me realize.. fuel filters can do that huh?
I never really thought of the fuel filter as a source of problems.

Heck if it goes bad.. get some new fresh sponge.. and stuff it in there! lol

Ya they can, especialy the duratrax blue fuel filter, the o-ring literaly melted causeing the filter to be loose, so not checking the things out I just tightend the filter down and ended up smashing the filter eliment inside, thus restrickting the fuel, thus makeing it run extremely fast and hot, then of course it started to run realy ****ty so I desided to through the engine in the junk box, and put a new one in, found out while breaking the new one in, it was running way to hot, so I ran a check on everything and found the filter was no good. Ran with out the filter and never had any problems after that, but I did put a new filter in after a few runs. BTW you should know that filters restrict the fuel a little bit, thus makeing you richen the mixture a bit, but I guess I dont need to tell you that huh??
