Default Why Why Why!!!????

My jato likes to stall spontaneosly. It will be running perfect, and then out of no where, it will jsut stall without any sign that it was about to stall(not b/c it ran out of gas). Can't seem to find the reason for this. Does anyone know or has had this problem with their st?

i agree, put your needles back to the break in settings, let it warm up for a few minutes, and then lean from there.

Thank guys for the help, but I didnt touch a thing today but the hsn (little adjustment) and it didnt stall. It only seems to happen here and there, not everyday, but if it gets worse I will reset teh needle settings. Thanks again!

You might want to check your tank for leaks. My buddys Revo was doing the same thing. He filled up and started it, then noticed tiny bubbles coming from the side of his tank. Just another thing to check.

are you re-tuning the motor every day.....you cant just leave the needles set at the same spot all the time and expect it to perform the same the day before
temp humidity all play a big factor. If high temps are a problem in high heat run a cold plug with higher nitro, it should help some

Yeah, I tune it all the time (mainly the hsn) to make sure its running at about 230-240. It has been running great though lately!!! I swear the car has a mind of its own. I still dont like the 2.5 in it tho, has lots of torch, but to ornry.
