Here wishing i was somewhere else

Did some testing this weekendwith the venom guage and finger method. The finger method is not very consistant,it depends on how hard you touch the backplate.I flew and landed and shut the engine off,the venom said the current temp was 240 degress ( i had leaned the main needle to 3/4 turn trying to get the best power) i was able to hold my finger on the backplate for 3 seconds. After a few other guys flew i did the finger test after they flew and theres was at least as hot as mine.

I can always leave my finger on for as long as I want too. I beleive that if the back plate feels hot then its getting close to being lean, so I prefer to air on the side of caution and have a luke warm engine- this still gives me more than enough power for 3Ding and an engine that lasts more than the average joe's hyper. I have occasionally felt engines on other guys models that were actually colder than ambiant temparture on the backplate - presumably due to evaporation of the fuel .

Burnt Finger Test

, I love it. Great R&D on this. I will take a temp gun as well. My finger is fairly whimpy so I bet I am around 185f
