HOW CAN YOU GET FUEL TO THE CARB WHEN YOU
HAVE A HALF OF A TANK OF FUEL OR LOWER. WHEN
I FILL UP I DO NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT.

Usually by placing my finger over the exhaust outlet for a second will do the trick just fine......Or you could just fill it up, Not like your not gonna have to do it anyway! http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/smile.gif
Watch out for the curb!

The fuel system on nitro vehicles are pressure dependent to deliver fuel to the carburator. As Steve had suggested, just putting your finger over the exhaust outlet for just a second will pressurize the system while trying to start it and prime the carb.
The only thing that matters is that there is fuel in the tank. A pressure or fuel leak would make starting difficult.
second place is the first loser...

You should put you finger over the pipe, you don't want to get dirt in the carb. Besides, mt hands are never clean when working on RCs http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/smile.gif
