hey guys. my nitro sport runs fine now after putting a new glow plug in it with a new seal, and my EZstart is apeice of , so im going to buy one of those big DC motors and use it to turn the flywheel from the bottom of my truck.. anyway, once i get it started, it runs for a bit, and will start sputtering when i give it any more than 50% gas, but then it will go away and work fine then start doing it again.. im at about 1000ft altitude, and i have the carb set 1 3/4 turns out. Should i lean it up or richen it up a bit? anyone have any ideas?
Well, i got one of those DC motors with a rubber wheel to crank the flywheel, and this shing starts almost instantly. The EZ start is a peicer.. I removed the ezstart completly and all those ugly wires.. so now its much lighter.. My gloplug was also loose, and thats why it was sputtering.. it must have been losing compression, and since this uses compression to ignite the gas, i can understand why it was running poorly. I would completly reccomend a 12v dc starter motor to anyone who owns one of these.. just clip it on a car battery, press the button, touch the rubber wheel to the car's flywheel and off you go! This nitro sport is so fast i can hardly believe it.. I cant wait to buy a slipper clutch and the .15 pro upgrade for it. I also bought some street tires for the rear, because i ate the knobby ones off in just 2 tanks of fuel :P..
this thing rocks after i worked my buttox off getting it running properly.. I still need to do some fine tuning and it will be as good as new.
