I am new to Nitro cars, and I have a brand-new Slayer that was given to me six years ago but that sat in the box completely assembled but never fired up (it came from the Traxxas factory as a promo). So this week I finally find enough time and motivation to dig it out and pour some fuel in, and it will turn over but won't even hint at starting.
The problem may be with the EZ starter. The 7.2V battery (new, but it has been in the box for six years) doesn't seem to be willing to hold a charge very well. I can only get it to turn the motor over for about two minutes in total before it gives up and has to be recharged on my peak charger (I'm charging it at 4A). Still, it seems to turn the motor over enough that the motor should light off, but it won't. I've primed it according to the owner's manual, and that doesn't help either.
Any suggestions to get me going would be appreciated.
