    Drain fuel tank, spray some WD-40 down the carb throat, remove the glow plug and spin the engine with the EZ start for 10 seconds or so. Replace plug, remove batteries from Rx and Tx. You're all set....

    To eliminate the bucking and jerking, you'll need to get the idle lower. This requires a sharp tune on the LSN so the engine doesn't stall out. As mentioned, there is a modification you can do so the...

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    I agree. Too lean. Start by running a body with no cut outs in the windshield and richen up the main needle by about 1/2 turn and re-tune from there.

    At least the plugs blew before...

    Looks like a T-Maxx 2.5 with a 3.3 engine.

    A 3.3 would have grey colored plastic parts, sealed u-joints on the driveshafts, optidrive system, etc.

    And yes, the 3.3 came with a plastic pipe from...

    Sounds like your idle speed is a little too high, which is causing the centrifugal clutch in the transmission to engage. Just lower the idle until the truck stops jumping. If you can't maintain a low...

    I doubt your engine needs to be replaced. But as far as tuning goes, the 2.5 and 3.3 have the same carburetor and tune equally easy.
  9. Hi, What have you tried to get it started?...

    Hi,

    What have you tried to get it started?
    Have you replaced the glow plug?
    Have you verified the plug is lighting up?
    Is the fuel fresh from a tightly sealed container or has it been sitting...

    Like cenracer1 I use the EZ start on my Traxxas nitro's. One button goodness.

    However, the on board glow ignitor may make sense for people with a pullstart.

    The device looks tiny, so I guess it uses PWM to reduce and regulate the voltage to the plug. A glow plug draws about 2-2.5 amps. So we're closer to 3 watts of power, plus we shouldn't forget about...

    Make sure the O-rings on the backplate and the carb base are in good shape and I think you'll be rippin' around in no time.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the remaining gummy residue. When you get it started, the heat from running along with the fresh fuel will clean it out just fine. Your engine looks pretty good...

    27T ROAR stock class motors will run hot, pretty much with whatever gearing you use. They produce a lot of power for a 27T motor due to the 24 degree advance in commutator timing. The tradeoff for...
