Default Just got a Tmaxx

Hey, I just did a trade for my XTM electric X-cell for a nitro T-maxx.. Witch is modified, has aluminum chassis and other things. But this is my first nitro and i am loving it so far I got this truck for a GREAT deal.. But anyways.

I am wondering whats the best way to tune them? I know some stuff about 2strokes and other motors so i am not a newbie with engines. But i am wondering how do you guys tune your nitro engines? I am also wondering whats the best way to keep the glow plug for burning out? This is the 2.5 Engine also.

Read the tuning bible at the top of this forum. Its stickied and will help you out alot. You should read it over again once you think you have your engine tuned and then again every couple weeks until it sticks.
