Questions?? jammin' jpx .28 not turning over???????!!!!!

i got a jamin .28 for my mugen truggy and i have a ofna chrome top 12v motor with a gel pack. i let the charger stay on charge for about 10 hours. it has 1 gallon of fuel through it.

i tried loosening the glow plug but it still wont turn over.

i have to heat it up with a hair dryer and then it will start

It might be that the engine is still not fully broken in.

What your experiencing could be the "pinch" at TDC.

If it has a true gallon through it, a strong starter box should have no problem turning it over when cold though.

The Jammins are very tight motors. My dad's .21 has over a gallon on his and he still heats his up before starting. It's tight still.
