Oh, and tell your friend to log on here and do some reading from builders with a lot of experience, years in fact, with these little Chinese engines. He might change his mind.
Well said Tom and I have to completely agree , I used to have the exact issues described by teratoma and was using a 16:1 mix ,some friendly advice by you guys has me change up to a 32:1 mix , my motor never misses a beat , takes 10-15 seconds to warm up and as such reaches wot after this short time perfectly, never again will I use the recommended syrup mix and will stick with 32:1
No excess drips from the exhaust and the motor doesn't have that somewhat unpleasant 2 stroke smell
