Save yourself all the nightmares and get a different engine. I been running nitro for years and I still had a difficult time running those engines that come with the gt and gt2. You can pick up a very good reliable engine for less than $200. I honestly think those engine draw people away from GT racing, they are a pain in the a**
I had the same thing happening with a new kyosho gt2. It would iddle and when I would hit the throttle the engine would die. HOT glow plug is a good idea, I also used a heat gun before trying to start the engine, that seemed to solved the problem for me. I still got rid of that paper weight.
It gets really frustrating thou because the engine doesn't hold a tune very well. NOT GOOD AT ALL FOR RACING PURPOSES.
