It varies on the weather. Sorry to say that, but an engine can take forever to warm up if it's just sitting and idling. Even revving it (which is bad :nono:) doesn't really warm it up faster. It has to be under load to get the temp to rise quickly. It sucks in the winter (trust me, I don't have heat in mine), but it really is better to get driving.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.

I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.
