Talking Newbie just got a nitro buggy... need advice

Bought an Ofna Ultra MBX w/ .26 and power start. Got it running and broken in, it seems I need to tune it. It doesn't have great throttle response off the line. Once it gets ripping, it had great acceleration. Any tips would be appreciated.

The factory break in settings are always very rich. Check to make sure that the carb is set a bit leaner than the break in requirements and try again.

sounds to me like your bottom end is loading up and you need to lean it out a little. Usually everyone at the track knows the guy who is good at tuning motors and has no problem helping you out. Its so much easier for a person to teach you this in person than by keyboard. Ask around your track and find this person, it will be well worth your time!
