y guys I had a few questions with my new Traxxas Jato 3.3, I recently picked this RTR kit up. I have experience with electric RC from many years ago I raced my RC10T quite regularly when I was younger. I bought my son a RTR Traxxas Slash for Christmas to give him a hoby other than video games. Well after showing him the basics I got the itch back!! I need you to go drive with him you know! LOL. Anyways this time I went with a nitro with no experience on nitro engines. Ok would you guys mind helping a noob with a few questions.
I live in MI and we still have some chilly weather, 50's today.
I completed my break in procedures just how the manual states
I am using Top Fuel 20%
1. When I 1st start my jato it takes a few times to get the truck to idle, (I am thinking thats the norm) but even after it starts idling the engine needs to run for 3 minutes before I can hit the throttle. If I give it any throttle (yes and slowly) it just stalls like its loading up with to much fuel. After it gets good and warm than that takes us to question 2..
2. When the jato takes off it acts like its loading up with fuel before it takes off, almost like its flooding the motor for a second than it clears up and runs like a bat out of h...!!! (Is this normal?)
3. After run oil? Do you guys remove the glow plug every time or is sprayinig a good amount of PB Blaster (A fancy WD40) in the air neck ok? I normally spray PB Blaster and run the motor starter and repeat 4 or 5 times. I have removed the glow plug and checked it seems that the lube is getting to the piston ok this way. I just worry about stripping or cross threading the engine from removing the glow plug so many times. Not to mention if the engine is still warm at all this is a big no no with a car, has anyone hear ever stripped there glow plug hole?
I have tried adjusting my low mixture setting and it only seems to idle higher, my high mixture needle seems ok because I get blue smoke. Only this loading up of the engine during take off. The truck came with a wheelie bar and the way the truck is running there is no way it could pull a wheelie, but when it kicks in than its very difficult to keep straight. !!!
Any advice on what settings to adjust and what it should perform like?
Thank you everyone for reading and or helping the new guy I just need to find them tracks in MI..
