Default Question for those with a Losi Ten-T

Those of you with a Ten-T how is the after run for the
motor? I had a Revo 3.3 and it was similar in the fact
that it has the cable that heats the glowplug. On my
Revo it got to be a pain to keep unplugging and
plugging it back to the glowplug.
The Revo manual said to put a couple of drops of after
run oil or WD-40 in the glowplug hole after each run.
Do you have to do this with the Ten-T as well?

every motor should be oiled after use.

the only exception would be if you were going to run again within the next 24-48 hours, but even still its good insurance to keep the internals lubed and ready for thier next run

Default LOSI TEN T

The LOSI TEN T. Its by far my fravourite RC Car I have ever owned(have had over 30 cars). Yes you should apply after run oil in the 3.4 . Sometimes I say to myself i will be driving it within 24 hours so dont bother. But sometimes you will get caught out like if it rains or your busy or lazy and dont drive the next day. I even put after run in if i havent cleaned out the engine of fuel after running. After playing with your car, that afternoon or night ,when engine has cooled, clean the glowplug area/hole before removing plug as much as possible(preferably 100% clean). Because if you miss some drops it will collect debris in the oil before going into your new engine. If its dirty your better off not putting after run in till its clean around glow plug hole. I wonder if anyone can answer this ? I am using SIN Bearing oil from acer as my after run oil. Im pretty sure it displaces water and has anti rust and anti corrosion additives. I think its better but would appreciate some feedback about this method.
P.s this is my review of the TEN T....
The Best RC Car Ever! This 1/10 truggy puts on an incredible display in the dirt and is very enjoyable onroad. The Losi 3.4 ( .20) size small block has to be the easiest nitro motor to run and maintain. The onboard starting system fires the engine to life at the push of a button on the included Spectrum DX3S. You will never overheat this baby as you can program the temp alert to warn you , with a beeping alarm , when the engine hits that temp. Which means you can get that perfect tune or run it rich to prolong engine life. Also, reciever battery voltage, transmitter battery voltage along with the trucks speed (MPH/KPH) are displayed in real time on the DX3S. THE FUTURE IS HERE!!!

Cool deal. How hard is it to remove and re-attach the wire to the glowplug? After a few weeks the one on my Revo 3.3 was frayed and rough

Default Glowplug Removal

Its a rock solid wire, definately wont fray. Removal is a breeze . Losi recommend undoing the plastic head protector to remove the wire but i think you could just slip some long nose pliers in to pull it off. I drive mine everyday so i dont after run it.
