    Winter Running

    I would like to know more about running my Tmaxx in the winter. I just got my 3.3 about a month ago. Now its starting to turn cold in the Denver area. Is there a temp you would not run in?

    I have heard of putting a sock over the engine. Can someone elaborate?

    What are the risks?

    thanks

    You should basically just have to richen it a little bit and you may have to partly cover the cooler head to keep the temps up. Also, so that the engine will start easier you could keep your truck indoor right until you go outside or heat up the cooling head with a hair dryer.

    I say pack it in for the winter. bothmy maxxes are going into hibernation. There's just too much inconsistencies with the engine when it gets cold. I will spend the winter fixing and upgrading parts.
