Redcat shockwave problems
 
I bought a shockwave from someone and it keeps blowing g-plugs. Has top end but slow to get going.
Thanks for your help in advance.

RE: Redcat shockwave problems
 
basically it sounds like your low speed needle is really rich. really rich or really lean fuel setting can cause glow plugs to go bad, as can flooding the motor.

and a rich low speed needle will casue it to "bog" or be slow accelerating.

the low speed needle is on the side of the carb. to lean, screw needle in a bit. dont go crazy, adjust 1/8-1/4 turn at most. and remember where it was before you started adjusting it, incase the adjustment doesnt improve performance you can go back to the previous setting.

Thanks so much for your help. By the way can you tell me the factory needle settings on this shockwave?
Thanks in advance for your help.
