    New to nitro, can't get trx 3.3 started...

    Hi all! I have been reading these foums for a long time!! I just made my second nitro purchase! A Slayer Pro!! I have been struggling to get the new trx 3.3 started... not once has it stayed running. I have fresh fuel but no top fuel, should I get some? I have trinity monster horsepower, Nitrotane and blue thunder... all 20% so far I have only tried the Trinity, I wonder if I HAVE to use top fuel only? I cannot get this engine started for more than a second and it dies. removed the glow plug and it looks good, so I sprayed som wd40 in the hole, checked the glow plug with an igniter (its bright) still no start! frustrating! should I have to tune it yet? It hasn't ran at all...

    Yup, I flooded it once, then went through the procedure in the manual (took out the glow plug, flipped the truck over turned the engine over for several seconds.... I even called support, they were helpful in getting it to start i had to heat up the block with a hair dryer and sray wd40 in the glow plug hole.... the engine started ran for a few seconds and died, that was the first start. Every start since has been the same...
