revsinc - http://www.teamlosi.com/Products/Sup...rodID=LOSA0030 has a few different setups for the BK2 that you might want to try. Fixing your problem might just be as simple as small adjustments (are your rear arms in the LONG position, or the SHORT position?) but if the original driver's setup didn't work for you, you might just want to start with one of these.

If your rear arms are in "short", "long" would fix that problem.

LOWGEARED - Man I've never thought about what size glow plugs are. I'm pretty sure they're 8mm?

As for making a fuel bottle...yikes. A water bottle with a sports top? Haha.

Seriously though, a fuel bottle is like ten bucks!

Just wrap the head in foil and a rag to insulate and keep the heat in. you need to get up to temp or the internals will never expand to where they need to be....If the insulation is not enough use a hair dryer or heat gun to get up to temp.

mxrider99 - Exactly.

lowgeared - As was said, you need to get the engine up to temperature or you won't be breaking it in so much as wearing it out prematurely. The metals in the engine will start to expand around 180 degrees, so it needs to be at least 180-200 to break in properly.

Use a heat gun to warm it up before you start it, and wrap the head in foil to keep the heat in while the engine is running. Keep track of the temperature as you're breaking it in, and it should be fine.

rusty - I posted something. Not sure what else I can do.

I'm sure Aaron has some tires he'd recommend as well, but here is what I've heard and read:

So far there hasn't been one stand out tire. The bowtie has become the most popular but some still choose the crimefighter. M3 and M2 is also a choice. From what I've heard, M3 during the day and M2 at night when moisture comes up... The stock molded foams work well...
