You were right about the engine being too lean. It got a little better when I richened the high speed needle. This worries me because it was getting way too lean at four turns. It is now at five. ...
I have been having trouble with engine stalling on my Nitro Rustler. It idles fine at a decent RPM range, but whenever i hit the throttle, the engine stalls or bogs down. I have a feeling...
I put a long zip tie on my tank. I then cut out the windows and pull the ziptie from an open window to open the tank on one side and pour fuel into the tank from the other.
Santa was very nice to me this year. He brought me a blue go-ped! This however, shall not make me leave the r/c world, but will have me enter the world of go-peds as well. LOL
I will take my Rustler into a sandy area near my house, turn my wheels as far as they go and open the throttle all the way. This makes sand fly everywhere. The sand looks like smoke and the whole...
Let's do the math. 1.33 horsepower in stock 2.5 Rustler. Rustler weighs three pounds. 1.33 hp = 3 pounds in 243.83 seconds, 3 pounds 166.25 miles per hour, gear reduction of 2.81 so the stock...
I think it would probably overpower your engine. The stock engine seems to be perfectly designed for its stock parts. I have an aluminum pipe and a giant heat sink...
I'm thinking about getting a new engine. Is the Fantom the way to go?
I was thinking it was too loose. Maybe it's something besides those two gears grinding. Any other suggestions?
the grinding sound is not the spur gear rubbing against the air filter.
Just recently I stripped my spur gear. To fix it, I found the 72 tooth spur gear and because the stock clutch bell was too big, found a 17 tooth clutch bell to go with the 72 tooth spur gear. It...
Try putting the spoiler on the body.
I started at thirteen from no experience what so ever. It took lots of patience and lots of reading to get my car started. From then it has been very fun, but quite expensive and very time...
Would the 4-tec have the acceleration that an HPI RS4 3 ss has?
Would a Nitro 4-tec or an HPI RS4 3 type ss win a drag race in one hundred feet? Getting to top speed?
Turns out that I had a hole in my fuel line and my fuel filter wasn't working very well. Any suggestions on its proper installation?
when I try to start my car it will sound like the starter is working, yet a second later it stalls out. What is wrong?
My fuel filter is just barely lying against my engine. Does this propose a problem? Thanks.
No. I do it all the time when gluing tires.
When my friend got his rustler he glued his hand to the tire (which he did not remove from the car while gluing) he was gluing. This was unfortunate...
Is there a way to prevent the Rustler from stalling after idling besides making the low speed needle leaner?
I pick it off. Nail polish remover helps a bit too.
If you spray paint a body will it look bad? Will it even work? If it does work then how do you do it?
Its something to think about. When you push the car with engine off, no harm done. when you push the car with the engine running, I wouldn't think that the RPMs would increase because the...
Would strapping a rocket to your car make the RPMs of the engine too high?
