    These engines are not like nitro engines. With these engines I've never check any temp whatsoever, Just make sure the needles are set to run just a little bit rich and that's all you need to do. Make sure you only adjust the needles 1/16 at a time.

    You should see a small amount of smoke. Sometimes none at all. But I always try to play it safe by seeing it.

    do not go by the amount of smoke, because diffrent oils will have more or less smoke. Always check you tune by the color of the spark plug. Temp can come into play but unless you are racing in a high end class and dont worry about having to rebuild your motor every race... dont worry about the temp. Just make sure you look at your spark plug, it tells it all. Anything from the heat range to the timming to the tune. You can read it all off the plug!
