With much more expensive toys. But DAMN are they fun!?!
Oy..... Tried to fire up the mini beast this afternoon. Couldn't get ignition. Checked the glow plug, it looked fine. Had a fresh bottle of nitro, fresh EZ start battery. I looked at the carburetor the other day. It looked fine. Tearing it down to completely clean it tonight. Any other ideas?
Wish i could help, but thats exactly why i went electric
A good cleaning won't hurt. Check the glow plug is getting hot! Make sure that fuel is completely primed to the carb, might have to blow into the exhaust. Try pulling on it with the glow plug loosened, if it fires up tighten while it's running.
Glow plug. It's always the damn glow plugs. And if you get a good glow plug in it then the glow starter is going to be dead. I don't miss nitro one little bit.
Did you pull the glow plug out and attach the glow starter to verify that it's glowing good and strong? If it's a faint glow or not glowing just change it. Even new plugs are bad sometimes.
I pulled the glow plug this morning and put it in my starter. Cherry red almost instantly. I'm gonna finish cleaning the carb and try blowing the exhaust to prime it. Maybe that'll get it going.
I don't recall ever have to clean the carb in a nitro car, and mine would sit for years with fuel in them sometimes.
Mine just took fresh gas to get fired up!
Haha! She lives! And she's just as fast as always! Almost took myself out..... lol. Switching from forward to reverse is sticking a little though.
