Default Can not get buggy to start please help!!!!

I can not get kyosho buggy to start i have a top p5
Does any body know the starting points to tune engine?
I have a m8 radio and when i push foward it pulls engine boot out and when i pull trigger it goes in. I had it on starter box and it finally started and it reved to the max and had to cover exaust to stop. It did that two or threee times and so I stopped when I picked it up a bunch of fuel came out jp 2 pipe
I hope I did not hurt any thing!!! any advice??

To save you hassle and money i would go to your LHS or local track and have someone that has tuned and setup a nitro engine before help you get going. YOu need to set all the end points and carb linkage before you try to start it. Fuel came out of the pipe because you just flooded it when you put your finger on the exhaust to kill it.

First off you need to get and read the manual for the m8. You need to reverse the throttle servo if what you wrote above is correct. When you pull the trigger it should as you say pull the carb boot out. When you push the trigger forward, it needs to push the boot in.

If the servo is a cheap standard servo, you need to toss it and get one with quite a bit more torque, preferrably over 100 ounces. If it's a high torque/digital, you need to put the buggy away and crack open the manual to the M8. Read it front to back and back to front. Familarize your self with all the settings and what they do. More than likely your EPAs (end point ajustments) are not set right. But first i would make sure that all the servos are at neutral when the radio trims are set to neutral before you mess with EPA.
