Exclamation New Kyosho DBX Help!!!

Hey, New here. And kinda new to nitro cars
I got a Kyosho DBX not to long ago, but i haven had time to break it in as i have had exams and school, but now its over i can get started, had it nearly a month, and no action . anyways, i have ordered a fuel filter for it, and just wanted to know whats the best way to install it. Is using more fuel line (Pipe) better?
Also whats the best nitro % for fuel?
And best Glow Plugs? Cold, Warm, Hot??

Thanks

Thinking of doing it sometime today, would love some help.
Also can you drive it slowly while braking it in (Low RPM)?
Thanks

Yes use more fuel line than they give you. It's too short and if you flip it will stall fast.

I have a dst witch is the exact same frame but with a truggy body on it. and the running gear is a little wider that the dbx is.Other than that as far as break in goes it's takes a total of five tanks of fuel to do it.I did my break in with 25% and afterwards I upped it to 30%.But the first three tanks you have to open the fuel/air screw up until its dead even with the top of the screw canal and then let it idle through three tanks.Then you have to slowly run it around not keeping at a steady rpm but fluctuating throught 0-100% throttle until you run another 2 tanks through it then you should be able to start running it normally.Still be careful not to stay at 100% throttle for long periods of time,also during the second two tanks of the break in its just generaly a bad idead to do speed passes.After you finish the break in take the fuel/air screw back down 2 and 1/4 turns and you should be just about right then you just adjust from there.Hope thats helpful in some way.
