I have my TT56 tuned decently. It runs on the rich side for the first half of the tank. Then around 1/2 it leans out a little and makes a ton more power. Right now I am using a regular clunk with no header tank. I would like to have most of the tank preform as well as the later half.

I am sure this topic has been beat to death. This is my first year running nitros.

Any kind of header tank will work and will lessen this problem (will not eliminate completely) - KSJ, RJX, QK etc ...

While you wait to get your header tank, one tip is to tune the engine at around 1/2 tank.

It was tuned at half a tank. It pulls great, but is just a tad rich when the tank is full.

OK - if your engine is new than don't try tune for better overall performance yet.

But once broken in/or if not new you should be able to tune the overall performance to be a bit more consistent even if the effect of the full -vs- empty tank will always be felt ; the header tank will not change this that much.

To go a step further in diminishing the effect of the tank emptying you could go for a Uniflow setup, but on the Vibe50 this would require a bit of surgery at the tank.

I have a YS50 ST. It was worn out so I bought a TT56. The TT motor has tons of power. I cannot bog it with Edge 623mm blades.
I have the parts on hand to rebuild the YS. I may give it a try before winter.
