You probably just have too much after run oil in there, loosen up the glow plug and turn it over a few times with a rag over the head. Letting it sit at BDC will probably work as well depending on how much fuel/oil you have in the case.

The piston is just stuck up top. I doubt just heating it up will release it, I usually stick a flathead screwdriver into the starter hole in the chassis to release the flywheel

btw its not a good idea to leave the piston stuck like that at the top like that, you might ruin that tight pinch.. always store it with the piston down

yeah i got it unstuck and got it all broken in and now i cant tune it because it started raining, good luck i know, but my next question is how do you think a hyper 7 will do if i race it, i mean i just want to have fun not try to win and get all pissed about it, but i mean if i have 0 chance of getting anything but dead last, i dont really see the point of wasting time, what do you think?

Hyper 7 is still one the most race worthy RTR's on the market today..It is a heavy buggy but that makes it stable, and durable..I know many people including myself who have had great success with it on a track..there is allot more to racing than the buggy you drive though...set-up and tires are probably 2 of the biggest things, and of course engine tuning..
