I can't figure out what the heck is wrong with my engine. I bring it outside to race around, but the engine doesn't stay running. I have an RC10GT with an OS CV-X engine.
Whenever I push on the brakes, the engine dies out. If I punch on the throttle too hard, it also dies out.
Previosly, I took my engine apart and I saw some really tiny scratches on the crankshaft. I could also push my piston to the top of the sleeve with a little bit of force.
What do I need to do
Do i just need a new piston and sleeve because my engines compresion is low?
Is my engine ruined and I need to buy a new one?
Please help. If I need a new engine, what are some good choices? I know that OS makes really good engines, and I would want something more powerfull than my old engine. I don't want to spend over $130 if possible.
