HPI has fixed the pipe issue with there tuned quiet exhaust you can buy, lol! For the rest of the issues I predict they will do nothing.I've noticed alot of post about the starting issues on the octane, as well as the braking of the pipe maybe I will wait on buying the octane till theses issues are resolved. To bad too really wanted one mainly cause of the cheaper fuel.
Very late on this, but it's an important point.ngk spark cm6 throws away the original spark is useless do a mix gasoline oil (1 liter of gasoline and oil 25cc) then please reset carb, by the book
Thanks for your story! I've spend one month with this problem, and today I've bought a new ignition system, so I hope It will be a solution for me like for you!Well after months of trial and error and no help from Hobbyco, I bought a new ignition system and the Octane seems to want to run again. New ignition system ran for a few tanks and never stalled. I do no understand why Hobbyco would say that it ran fine for them but yet I get it back it was doing the same thing as before. Anyways if anyone was wondering, the ignition system was weak and I got a new one and it works now.. I wonder if Hobbyco will refund me the money I paid for the new one as their "techs" couldn't seem to figure this out either.
