Keep it up guy's!! I need to make note of what not to do since I'm new to nitro lol ! but just to add I got new parts and everythings back together sunny day gotto run it havin a BLAST !!
Tank here tank there started twinking on the motor abit it would run strong then I would twink it to far and die just learning the game standing in the street with my plug igniter and three or four drivers and wrench's in my pocket. Anyway's long story short I twink on it again and it went ten feet died so I changed everything back to when it was running strong, Pull pull pull no go pull pull pull NO GO !! neighbors telling me to get an electric and I'm cursing WTF !! it was great two minutes AGO !! Pop the shell NO FUEL DOH!! Hmm I didn't say what happend but laughed and told him there was a broken wire I went into my garage and added fuel came back out SEE !! started right UP !!

Now that I think about it we need a sticky type sticker fuel gauge reader on the back window of the lexan kinda like the thermo. temp gauge on a fish tank light blue low red EMPTY!! HAHA

(thinking to myself this guy must really hate me right know)

My stepfather and I bought the grasshopper II (electric) when I was 12.
Now that I 26 I wanted to get back into the hobby, but went with nitro (rs43 18ss). I couldn't understand why the engine kept overheating. Come to find out I put the 2 speed tranny together wrong and I was driving around all the time pinned in first gear! First time with 2 speeds I didn't realize it was sopposed to shift!
