All specifications are either in the Zen or CY manual. The CY is all so in all the HPI baja manuals. Being a motorcycle mechanic and machinist for over 35 years I believe in proper torque. Have to wonder if some of the problems with the base gaskets on 2 bolt engines might be do to improper torque.

I am almost positive that was the problem in my 2 bolt. I lost that thing due to lean condition and very little dirt. I also think that choke plate for my 813 let in dirt as well. I will start it differently now.
