Free Beer
« on: January 07, 2010, 07:24:19 AM »
Hummm did that get any attention  :P

I resently got a SC8 for xmas from wifey... I am a newbie to Nitro engines.
I had done some research and got the truck fired up and burnt thru the first tank
but let it sit for a week before i touched it again,, and have had TERRIBLE trouble trying to getting it started again
and was thinking of taking into a local shop and paying to get it tuned and broken in,,,,

I have purchased a few extra plugs and almost sheered the hex starter bit.... (help)

Is there anybody that likes beer in the North Langley area that maybe wants to come and take a look
and share a few beers....

Just a rumor.... but you may wanna check with Wes... I hear he likes beer.... *cough* *cough*  ;)  And you didn't hear this from me LOL
Some times the mind, for reasons we don't necessarily understand, just decides to go to the store for a quart of milk!!!

Wow, a SC8 from the wife is a nice gift.

I live in richmond, but would be happy to help any way I can.
Nitro engines are always really rich at factory settings during break in. Your glow plug may already be fouled causing the headaches.
Fresh batteries in your ignitor and rotor start will always help as well. I always keep new batteries in my tool box for my ignitor.
I find using the throttle trim on the radio to slightly open the throttle a little more during start up also helps. Just be sure to hold onto the truck  ;D
Nitro is all I run, so feel free to ask any questions.
There are also lots of great guys on here that can help you out.
Welcome to the world of nitro.  :)

Very true  :)

I should be free Saturday around noon (Wife going shopping  ;D).
I could probably drive out if you want to meet up somewhere.
My RC8T could use a good run.
