Gump make sure the throttle is opening all the way. Out of three of them that I have run all three did not have full throttle. We took two out yesterday for a bash session and we are very impressed. We are going to remove the stinger today to see what happens. We ran approx 40 minutes without refueling. That was nice. They do not yet have the get up and go off a buggy or savage but once they ddo get going it was great. We jumped one of the approx. 6 feet with good results. Two problems we have found so far is 1. pull cord needed to be cleaned to engage with the motor after first run. 2. The rear plastic peice gets hung up on rocks and grass and is being pulled off. I love the B5 so far. My seven and five year old love it also because the power comes on more linear and is easier for them to drive.

oh yeah - thats the other thing i forgot to mention - taking the plastic cover off the motor lowers the temps by something close to 20 degrees and will prevent overheating under hard use.
the throttle linkage was checked by tom. it was definitely openging all the way.
i'm looking foreward to getting my hands on one of these.

When you open up the starter assembly area keep an eye on grass and rocks going in. We glue/epoxy a screen on the inside of the assembly to prevent this. Otherwsie you may break parts of the flywheel fins. A guy has already removed the stinger and re-welded a dual exhaust on it. Now it sounds like a Jetpro Pipe.
