I have this lazer temp gauge i use to tune my nitro rc cars. I have been using it to read the temp of the cylinder after a good bashing on the motor. I have no more four stroking after i finally put a 50:1 mixture in it. My max. temp reading has been under 200 degrees. CLoser to 145-150. I use Koltz R50 Synthetic oil. Could i go a tad bit leaner? I am on a stock piston and rings and want it to last this season but, plan to kit it over the winter. What is the hottest i want to be after blasting for an hour or more. I tend to hold WOT for a good minute. I guess i just don't know how long you can hold them wide out without worring also. One mile? five miles WOT? these readings have been only after about a half hour of blasting around the hood.
Should i be taking readings after longer rides? Questions...questions..
thanks for any posative reply.
