Angry Exceed RC 1\10 buggy=a piece of junk?

It is almost impossible to start.I just spended an hour trying to start it.Sometimes the engine turns on and then turns off.I put the trim all the way to brake and the wheels still spin.Does any else have this buggy?I use an Exceed RC glow starter.

its possibly flooded? maybe your glow starter is dead? are you sure your getting gas into the carb? none of your needles are completely closed?

I got fuel in the carborator.I thought it was flooded so I turned the needle.I read the manual and none of the stuff in the manual helped.I charged the glow starter for 4 hours.I guess I got what I paid for.

I AM NOT BEING A DICK but honestly Exceed is total garbage. Don't bother taking it to any of their "dealers" for support because they lie on their website and none of their "dealers" actually sell or support their products.

The owner of my lhs has had issues with them and has turned them in numerous times because he is listed as a dealer which he most definitely is not and people keep bringing their junk to him to repair and asking for parts but he can't do anything for them.

I have seen people start it without any problems starting the engine and thier wheels don't move automatically when the engine starts.What's a good 1/10 buggy under $350?

They don't really make too many 10th scale nitro buggies. An associated GT2 is a great 10th scale truck for about $289. The only 10th scale nitro buggy that I know of is the duratrax nitro evader bx, I wouldn't buy it though, it is not very good.
