    maybe the manufactures screwed up( dont really think so tho) umm is fuel getting to the carb? did you do anyting with the needles? With a brand new engine dont mess at all with the needles tell you have it started and are in your break in period

    What car did you buy? A little description of what you have might help.

    I think you really need to switch to electrics as you just don't seem to have any luck with nitro at all.....LOL

    steve, i agree!!

    but anyway, check glow plug battery, check glow plug, check factory settings on ur needle's, check for fuel line for leaks, and make sure ur following the correct starting process. good luck, and dont give up after like 5 minutes, if u've been. stick with it!

    well, it could be way too rich, but make sure if ur fuel cell has a primer, only push that so theres a little bit of fuel in your carb. Also, if it floods, take out your glow plug, and flip over ur car, making sure theres no fuel and try again.
