Yeah yeah, i know what youre thinking...."another noob needs help with his HPI...UGH"
Im at an impass. I have read every thread i could find on the hpi, and i have read the manuals online as well. This is where the problem seems to start though.
I have an HPI2TEN i boughg for my puch with an E50 (bought from Mr. DUNCAN) according to the stator plate. There are 3 manuals on HPI's website, for what i assume are 3 different types of 210 series cdi. I can't determine which timing method to follow.
2 of the manuals call for using a mark on the cable clamp on the stator plate, and 1 calls for using a line to either side of the cable clamp.
I have had friends tell.me.to use the left line for a clockwise rotating flywheel (bring piston to TDC, back off 2mm BTDC, and install flywheel with notch aligned with line), but the only manual for 210 that tells you to use the lines, says that the right line needs to be used for clockwise flywheel, not the left.
Unfortunately, my timing light crapped out on me recently, i have a new one coming soon.
In the meantime, i was hoping the people experienced with HPI ignitions can educate me on the methods for timing properly, in the way a wiki entry would show? (Setting initial timing, adjusting the timing you have, general setup and procedure etc.) (Why is there no wiki entry on HPI's?)
I'd reaply appreciate any help and guidance you can give me.
Thanks in advance! (Pun intended) (edited)
