I have a nitro rustler that has been boxed away for about 2 years. I'm trying to fix to sell to put towards a Revo 3.3. (I still have a jato so I'm not leaving you stadium truck guys). After fighting it to start I found a leak just below the hsn so I tightened that up but now I have a more serious problem I think is unrelated. If I do manage to get the rustler to start (drain an entire battery with ez start) it runs for 30 seconds to a minute (light and heavy throttle) it cuts off and dies even when under throttle.
After it dies it will not start without sitting for at least 5 minutes. When I ran the truck in the past engine temps at the cooling head never exceeded 250. Any suggestions on what might be the problem? When I get home and have the chance I will start again and check for compression after it dies.
Reset the carb settings to stock and attempt to tune from there. It's all covered in detail in your manual or on the support section on the website.
Hsn is 4 turns from closed and lsn is flush with inner ring. First thing I tried. Thanks for the input though. Any other ideas?also replaced both fuel lines in case of leaks.
New or old fuel? Check glow plug?
Lost all compression after it warmed up. Problem found thanks for help
