Unhappy Help

Hi, I'm new so this is a hello.

Problem is now, i just bought this buggy second hand. When you start it it runs fine until you remove the glow start, then it stalls. any ideas? I wanna play with my new toy.

Sounds like a worn-out glow plug. Get a new one and replaced it.

Or the high speed needle is too rich, search up on "tuning."

its either a worn out plug, its to rich, or it might just need to warm up a bit before u take it off. both of my nitros do the same thing sometimes, so what i do is i just leave the ignitor on there for about 10 seconds (maybe a little more), take it off, and its usually fine after that (thats if my glow plug isn't totally cooked).

Usually when it cuts right out when you remove the ignitor the plug is bad. There are a few things that also can cause it to shut off. The idle is too low, or the carb setting are too lean or rich. The first thing to do is head down to the local hobby shop and replace the plug. I'm guessing that will solve your problem. If you're really knew at this I'd suggest also trying to get somebody to show you some tuning basics.
