do you have temp gun handy?

if not, buy this

http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/6/Tools/2/CordedPowerTools/ComboKits/PRD~1992031P/Mastercraft%252BDigital%252BTool%252BCombo.jsp?locale=en

it comes with stud detector which isn't useful to all of us but it's better deal at 30 bucks vs paying 49.99 for the same temp gun on its own at cdn tire. I picked it up today and it works great.

check out this vid.. and his channel as well

and also check out this one,

 starting at 5min, it shows you how to diagnose idle issue and LSN.

once you have LSN and idle worked out HSN shouldn't be a big problem, you just tune it so that there's thin trail of smoke

refer to the chart or try this:http://thetoyz.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=24925&st=0

To hot after running ( driving, not idling)? Do you know the temp? If its hot it's too lean, top end needs to be rich end up.

hey man i really appreciate all the info but the prob is I would like to sharpen all my skills with a pro so that I can learn how to fix a prob and yes the temp says like 330 and if I lower it, it does not run well, so can anyone help out before I kill the motor

Temp should be 200-240, Are you tuning the top ( large ) screw?

what fuel are you using? I noticed with my losi, it does not like HPI fuel at all. with HPI fuel it sits at 300F but when i switched it out for traxxas fuel temp dropped to 210F.

but regardless of temp, if you are still seeing stream of smoke your engine is properly being lubricated so it won't kill it

I'm gonna guess you've already broken in your motor?

I don't mean to be an ass but in the time you have waited for people to respond or actually agree to come out and help... head over to local hobby shop and ask them for first hand help. may cost you 10 bucks or so but it's worth it.
