Fly Wheel best for your engine

That's fine if you have a buggy or stadium truck and the flywheel sticks down below the chassis. In monster trucks, the flywheel isn't as accessible, so the easiest means of shutting down the engine is either to pinch the fuel tube or choke the exhaust. IMO choking the exhaust is the better of the two since it doesn't lean out the engine.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

choking the exhaust isnt exactly the best for your motor either.. it basically floods the motor and stalls it, loading up the crank case one way bearing in the back with loads of fuel and could lead to premature failure or slippage of oyuer one way. it also leads to harder restarts from the motor being flooded at shutoff, this also adds stress on the internals at start up.

best way to shut it off is the fuel line pinch.. and if its not too dirty to plug the carb up but thats hard to do most of the time without risking dropping dirt particles in.

Everybody's a critic... :roll: LOL :wink: :lol:

Does the engine really have enough time to flood before the backpressure builds up too much for it to draw a charge in since it can't push out the exhaust? IMO, either method will work without detriment to the engine.

it cant push exhasust out the stinger.. so it pushes it all directly into the preasure line forcing fuel from the tank into the carb :wink: its not gonna kill your motor its just not as healthy for it as other methods...

Well, I always disconnect the pressure line first!
