Richen the carb. It's probably frying sooner but the coil is staying hot enough to keep it running until you shut it down.
How are they looking? Is the coil mangled, shiny or gone?

In addition to what Ron said, what plugs are you running? When running 30% nitro you should be running a plug toward the cool range.

just richen out very slightly and try it. depending on atmosperic pressure or sea level these engines are pretty sensitive.

We are having the best luck with 30% N and 20%oil using o.s. #8
