I recently purchased this gas r/c truck and have run less than 3/4 of a gallon of fuel through it.
It started getting hard to start and now will not run at all. I have changed the glow plug, changed the battery in the glow plug starter, tried new fuel and also tried to change to the carb settings to no evail. People have told me that I may have run it too lean - I don't agree as I adjusted per the manual that came with the vehicle.
I have pulled the cylinder and piston out of the engine - how can I tell if they are warn out? And is the DTX .18 a quality engine? Is it worth rebuilding it or should I replace it with an O.S. Max CVR .18 engine?
Any ideas that you can give me would be great - this is getting expensive and I am not sure I should have bought this.
