your welcome, if you dont want to wait, go to an auto store and get some gasket material and cut out your own.

yeah, thats not real high tem gasket material, they sell small rolls of material, i bought some for my kids pocket bike and made a couple of rc exhaust gaskets, have a ton left over still, that cork gasket is meant for trans, oil pan and valve covers, not real high temp material.

hate to keep buggin you thanx for all the help before the gasket went when i ran the truck for a few minutes and did the spit test on it it seemed to be running cool (10 sec or more) im running bryons 15% with 18% oil got about a half gallon through it can i still lean it out it smokes like crazy now and seemed to be running great till the manifold loosened up. or should i switch to a lower oil content and retune it

18% oil is a little high, and 15% nitro is a little low, is that plane fuel? i like byrons race proven 20%, i think it has 12% oil. you can lean it a little at a time and see if the performance is getting any better, if not then dont bother, do 1/8 turns at a time.

what engine is in your volcano, the hpi pull start fit 4 of my redcats, the vx-18, i see you have the pro, does that come with a different engine, i think its the infinity .18, from what i understand they use the same pullstart, maybe not if you say it didnt work.
