    2wd and 4wd are fun, 2wd takes a different skill to drive than 4wd and vice versa, 2wd easier to maintain and work on, 4wd more complicated to work on but in the end wrenching on any car will be easy after you get used to it

    Yes when you break in the nitro it should be running rich rich rich, lots white smoke if not it could mess with the performance or even toast the engine

    Well what issues are you having with the truck, I just know when you break in a nitro it should be ran really rich for example excessive white smoke and spitting fuel out of the pipe, then after a few tanks you slowly lean the mixture but you never want to run to lean even after it's broken in completely, every time you drive a nitro there should be a trail of white smoke coming from the pipe

    Improper break in can cause premature wear, too much stress on the internals to create a failure down the road...

    Most times though, it's usually poor tuning that causes most of these failures.

    I avoid buying used engines, if buying a used RC, consider the engine toast when pricing... Unless you are able to take it for a test run and using at least 1.2 a tank of fuel to make sure it's OK.

    Slayer. They both have the same engine, so just break it right, and take your time. That way you won't have issues. I have the Slayer, and I love mine. It's great!
