Yes, it could be any of a bunch of things, but, if he did not retune, after going from Amsoil at 100:1 to Red Line at 40:1, then the new mixture was lean ! I am hoping that he richened his needles after making the change.

yup that sounds like a tuning issue. from what i understand the DA team pilots have switched over to redline. atleast the ones i know.or he is using the incorrect redline oil.

He did, he completely started from factory setting again. Used a tach and a temp gun. This isn't some rookie!

It could be anything.....but it happened.

perhaps not, but his judgement WAS questionable though...from using Amsoil to begin with!



An entertaining oil or radio thread can be fun no?

Not necessarily .... Yer gotta remember that DA recommended Amsoil Saber at 100:1 a few years ago.

And one other important note; the reason that you can run Stihl HP Ultra at 50:1, over Red Lines recommended 40:1, is because the Stihl is a superior synthetic oil.

Hey guys you all really need to check out schaeffers synthetic 2cycle oil. Blows all the competition out the water. Been running it for several years now. Started out running it in my Quicksilver ultralight with an aircooled rotax instantly saw lower egt and cht temps with zero carbon buildup. Search schaeffers oil on google. You wont ever regret it

Oil ratio isn't what seizes a motor. Not tuning it right does. While more oil keeps the bearings cooler and lathered in oil plus the rings seal better and it helps to keep corrosion away. More fuel keeps the piston cooler along with the combustion temp ( if tuned right ) . I'll bet da changed their recomendation for the lack of guys that can't tune right. Gives them a better margin.That said stihl hp 50-1 all the way !!!
