Nwebie Nitro questions (HPI RS4 Evo)
I just bought a new RS4 Evo RTR
In followed the instructions to the letter, but had trouble starting it.
In the manual it showed putting the glow charger on the glow plug, but did not say anything about how long (eg untill it starts, for 10 secs, etc). If I left it on there it would start, but die shortly after taking it off.
Also, while trying to start it, after turing over for a few secs (with the roto-starter) it sometimes would (seemingly) seize, or stop turning. I never held it on there once it stopped. I only let it turn for 5 secs or so at a time.
After I DID finally get it to idle, it would die, as soo as I tried to apply even a tiny bit of throttle. (Also, the wheels were not turning as they should, almost as if there was brake or clutch drag, but I don't think so, it rolls freely).
I let it sit a couple hours, because I thought it may have been flooded, and the roto-starter was turning VERY slowly, as if the battery was not charged. So I charged the battery for the roto-start, while I let it sit for a couple hours.
When I tried to restart it again, the roto-start failed, it actually smoked where the extension piece fits in to the roto-start, and the battery got real hot.
I am a couple hours away from the dealer where I bought it, and am wondering if I can just use the extension piece in a drill, or use something else.
If there is a link to find all this info, I would be glad to read it.
Thanks for any help.
