Idle Setting


Recommended Posts

Alright, I remember Keith talking about adjusting your idle higher. I'm thinking it's to give yourself an automatic maintainence throttle if you should let the engine rev down far enough. Anyone else remember him talking about setting your idle higher at like 3k as a learning tool?

There was another thread that this came up and Keith does cover it in one of the books, I think it might be Soft Science. I don't know the exact page/reference, but if you find it want to post it up here?

I found some more info on this. I don't have the book, but here's where it is. Soft Science page 107 in chapter IX. After reading through some more posts I think I'll leave it turned down for the time being. It's actually is a more advanced setting after you master throttle control. No point in cheating now for me at this point.

Thanks for putting that up. We've had some students to this at the school.
