Help please :(
« on: May 09, 2012, 09:13:39 PM »
I just got a tamiya tnx and it won't start. New glow plug and fresh fuel. I cleaned engine and everything and when I stick the wand in and try to get it to start, it just sounds like its running but when I let go it stops. Anyone help me please?

Not you again! Lol I just came out of brushless, weather is so nice and it's perfect for nitro. I guess I'll bring it to the shop

Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid then to open it and remove all doubt

Pretty much any hobby shop will carry igniters.
Personally I like the ones that you don't charge but just drop a AA battery in.
Igniter dies in the field? Pop in a new battery. Always have a least a couple floating in my tool box.

Ebay or online is your best bet for a TNX. Those engines were plagued with problems from the beginning and Tamiya didn't support them for very long. Once you get it running again you may be better off cutting your losses and selling it. Get something like a T-maxx or Savage after. Much better parts support and reliability.

Good luck!
