Default nitro rustler

i just got a nitro rustler yesterday and broke it in today. i followed all of the break in rules. then later i brought it to a Field in a school and did some do-nuts right after i cleaned the air filter and after run. in the dirt it started smoking. but it still ran and had complete power. waited 5 minutes fired it up and no more smoke at all. then i brought it home did after run cleaned it up and air filter then ran it later in the day like 3 hours and then it smoked again. it has all the good signs like blue smoke trail and the pinching test. someone said it was your after run oil was around on the head and it was just smoking, then someone else said your glow plug washer might not be on right so i think its either one or the other. but other tan that it runs fast and smooth. do you think it could be anything else that piston looked real nice not black or anything.

Are you talking about smoke from the exhaust, or just smoke coming off the engine??

If its smoking from the pipe its just the after oil, if its from around the motor u may have got some of the oil on it. my ofna does the same thing when i first start it up.
