Engine problems
I have had an 1/8 buggy stored for about 8years...just sitting in my rafters in the bacement. I decided to get it down and the engine looked to be locked up. Turns out that the after run oil I put in had turned into goop that locked the engine tight. I removed the back cover and cleaned it out with brakekleen and carb cleaner, the engine turns fine now.

After a new glow plug the engine fires right up and idles great, works great till you get to about 1/4 throttle then it will die. Does not matter if there is a load on the engine or not. I did not clean the carb on the engine at all.

Any Ideas?

I would clean the carb and replace any orings or gaskets on it. Also clean out the needle jets I bet they are all gummed up.

Fresh fuel also incase you tried using old stuff. :)
