get a temp gun, and wrap aluminim foil around the head, ideal 3 tanks threw it keeping the temp no less than 200f. lean the boutem end a hafe turn and the top a quater turn, then with the foil still on easily drive it around agin keep the temps above 200f, do this for 3 tanks, now your ready to lean everthing about a quater turn and start giving it busts of full throttle. the bigest thing is to keep the temps over 200f and take it easy for a little whaile.
losi lst: Big red .28, one speed hub, jp-1 pipe...

Definately need a heat gun or the engine will bind up. You'll eat up the starter wheel in the box and mess up the fly wheel un binding it. Check out "Competition Heat" at Amainhobbies.
