Nice build :)
A dead battery?
Very nice build!!! Makes me miss my old nitros.
1. Removed electronics.
2. Plug off carb with a ziplock bag and an elastic
3. Spray truck down with simple green. Let it sit for a few mins.
4. Hose truck off.
5. Spray the truck down with wd-40...
I just ran a nitro motor I hadn't fired up in over 3 years today. It's -10C here today. It ran just fine! I didn't run it in any deep snow but I did nothing to water proof it and it's a buggy with a...
The transmission has nothing to do with the truck creeping forward while idling.
The way a clutch works on these trucks is by centrifugal force. When the engine spins at enough rpms the force of...
Wheelies aren't a good means to measure by! If the motor runs well and you have good temps you're all set.
They're air cooled engines so unless you have a ton of air blowing over the motor I wouldn't try and run it at all.
1. Go over the entire truck by eye/feel and check for any damaged parts.
2. Replace the battery pack if you haven't already
3. Install a failsafe if the truck doesn't have one
4. Check the two...
An easy way to tell if the clutch springs have failed and the clutch is locked up is to pick the truck up off the ground and pull on the pull-start. If the wheels move then the clutch is ofcourse...
Exactly! Also I don't know what surface you are on or what tires you are running but this will ofcourse affect things as well.
Don't take no wheelies to mean the motor isn't necessarily up to...
Having an extended chassis and soft suspension doesn't make it very easy/possible to pull wheelies.
On a 1/10th scale truck I would NEVER go nitro ever again. They sound cooler, and look cooler, but they're 1000x more of a headache. Nitro motors are so finiky and be extremely annoying even for an...
meh, it's not for me
UE in da houssssseeeeeeee. But yes.
I do the sway bars
Seriously guys!!!! Please check them.
I am confused :(
I am a complete n00blet!
OK what are the HSN and LSN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
How do I 'tune'????
What is too rich and too lean? What do you mean by this?
What is a failsafe???? I will check the batteries
Is it safe...
Ok so I was driving the other day going super fast like fully wide open throttle for a solid 4 minutes straight. Man this thing revs high.
Anyway so all of a sudden WHAMO I lose control over the...
Better exhaust, aluminum bulkheads.
Good luck with it. Post pics when done
*waits for everyone to chime in saying "You dont' need to water cool it" etc etc*
I felt the same when I sold all of my rare chassis'.
