hpi cdi: weak spark?

did anyone else have this problem at first? if so, what measures did you take to change this?

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

make sure you are grounded really well. that thing should be blazing.

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

Is the black wire with white stripe maybe a ground wire?? this is one that is loose and coming off of the voltage regulator box, I just got one of these used and I'm trying to get it to work.

Never had that problem. Thing has always shocked the fuck outta me.

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

sounds like you got it figured out, cookie? now for my question, mijunk, what does the black wire with white stripe off of the voltage reg. do? Did you ground it? or plug it into your butt? I was trying to kick it over without that wire going to anything, then I tried to ground it, my roomate thought he saw a spark with it grounded, then after that nothing...... I've checked the two big hpi threads, all that was really talked about was that damn lighting coil piece of shiaaat, and setting the right timing position.

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

probably not much help, but with the garelli cdi.... i had to snip and restrip some of the wires to get a strong spark

solved my problems

had a sturdy ground too and started running BR7HS plugs

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

thanks but no thanks I'll just make a new thread.

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

Go to HPI website and follow the wiring directions I'm running two of these and each time I had a problem I would start from scratch with wiring and grounding problems solved

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

ok thanks sorry fo doggin tomtom

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

Doug, the black and white wire from the box is your kill switch hook up. If you ground it, it'll have no spark.

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

Ground?... I haven't grounded anything. Isn't your spark plug the ground?

Re: hpi cdi: weak spark?

the ignition coil. there should be a ground or two there running to lights etc. the coil its self if has a metal piece on the outside that mounts to the fram thats your main ground. check your wires.
