any funny smells?

that's detonation son. Either that or you missed and didn't clear the chamber and lit it coming out the next time around.

ehhh kinda sort of like a clutch smell....detonation is just a backfire right not a big deal???

detonation is never good... can cause damage to your engine

i dunno... anything to make the combustion chamber colder.. change to a colder spark plug, higher octane fuel, etc
