Funny that. This is one aspect of the game I pay no attention to whatsoever. Guess that makes me no pilot. But I ain't one anyways (in rl)....

Wonder what radiators do to(o)(?).

Great links above and here are a few quick rules of thumb with CEM:

1. If smoke is pouring out of your exhaust and you haven't been shot, decrease mixture.

2. If you are climbing and the power seems to die off, increase Supercharger stage.

3. If you're in a dive and gaining too much speed, decrease prop pitch.

Most of CEM can be learned by listening to your engine and adjusting accordingly. The best way to learn is to do. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
