Do you mean say an extra .010 shim to run 50%, or is there some rule of thumb. It would break my heart to burn up this pretty Rossi motor. I'm going to stick with 25% for now. Heck, that might be...

Thanks for the input, good stuff. I've been going over the power trim in my mind, and got to thinking maybe a better use of the 3rd channel would be mixture on the fly. It's always a pain for me...

I wish I could find the patience to do something like this. I probably have over a dozen nitro boats, but have never built a single one. I always buy them already built. Sometimes I'll have to do the...
