    just bought RTR3 EVO and im breaking it in but the engine barely has enough power to move the car, and certainly not at any speed
    is this normal during break in?

    During the break in process the engine is kept very rich to allow alot of lubrication to the piston and sleeve. After the engine is porperly broken-in then you should lean the engine and start to find the best performance settings. Also keep an eye on the engine temp. If it starts to get higher than 270 degrees then richen it up and check it from there.
  4. Maybe if you tighten your clutch a little bit might make it grab a little more

    Dont worry about power until at least the third tank. Then start leaning it out 1/8th of a turn at time until it starts makin power. Make sure not to run it too hot though while your still breakin it in. Around 220 probably
  6. Just tighten the clutch

    maybe he is flustered with a sliper clutch.
  11. In the bell gear there is usaully a allen wrench screww that if you loosen the clutch will be more likly to engage sooner or tighten and engages later
    For a spring clutch there are all kinds of spprings you can get
