Default My new toy..... and a question to go along with it

I just got a new Inferno GT2 and this is my first experience with RC Nitro. I went to the hobby shop and got 30% fuel. Is this too much to break in my motor? I don't want to damage it.

Thank you in advance for the advice.

Peace,
Chris

Chris,

See if you can exchange the fuel for 20%. 30% is too much for the IGT engine.

Lee,

Thank you. That is what I thought. If I can't exchange it, I will give it to my friend who got me into R/C.

Yep, brake it in with 20% nitro first. Have your friend help since it's very important to do it right.

You will encounter some problems with the 2nd speed gear eventually. I have a quick fix for that... I'll post some pictures since it's hard to explain with just words.

Check out the kyosho inferno GT forums ( infernogt.proboards.com ) a lot of great info there...

You are going to love your new GT2
