Weather finally got nice enough to run my Nitro Sport. Was my first experience with RC and nitro. Loved it!! Only issue was carb was set too lean out of the box. HSN was a little less than 2 turns out. Engine kept dying and was kind of hard to start. After about half way through first tank of fuel I re-set HSN to factory setting. Made all the difference in the world! Runs great. Finnished break in and just leaned the HSN about 1/8 of a turn. Starts easy and has great power and speed. It`s probably still a little rich but running perfect. Temp was 173 degrees running with body on. Couldnt be happier! Now to break in my new T Maxx 3.3
Have fun! Nitro vehicles are definitely fun!

Welcome! The NS was my first nitro RC. Couldn't believe how quick it was. Lots of fun. Then I got a MT with a 3.3 and my mind was blown away. The power and speed difference was awesome. Now with a TMaxx and a Revo I use them mostly but it's still great to pull out the Sport. RWD is so different than 4WD. Glad you are enjoying it!

Good times don't just happen.
Thanks for the replies, guys. Yeah really enjoying this hobby. I`m 55 years old and feel like a kid again with these RC trucks. Awesome fun.
