Default HELP

Hey guys, I am new to this site and just started rolling a nitro on road.
just have one quick question, is it normal for a nitro engine, hard to start it back up when you run it too long, i mean about 10 times of filling up the tank and messing around the parking lot non stop like there's no tomorrow then everytime i fill up my tank , it is really hard to start it back up, it will start but it'll take me probably 10 times pulling the rope or whatever. please help.thanks

Well, that could be a couple things. Your plug, your tune, or a bad engine.

Now if the engine runs good when it runs, then it's not bad. I would say your tune is probably off. Are you running very lean or very Rich?

if its hard to start EVERY time,make sure its not running too hot...(causing the carb to vaporize the fuel..)
