Exclamation TS4N Help for Newbie

Hello,

I have recently been given a second hand TS4N it was in a pretty poor state, however I have managed to get it running.

It loses power quite quickly and the glow plug tends to burn out, is it possible it is overheating because of wrong fuel and glowplug.

I'm going to clean it up and bring it back to life If I can sort out the problems.

I had it running on 16% nitro

Any help would be appreciated

Mark

The glow plug I was sold was HP1502 Glow Plug Medium R3.

As for the engine I think its the Stock pro 12 engine
I don't want to be a pain in the Ass but I can really see me getting into this. I'm going to start stripping it down and cleaning it tonight. in the words of Jeremy Clarkson - "How hard can it be?"

I have stripped the car down and it definately is the stock 12 pro engine, I was using a R3 glow plug with 16% fuel.

Is it likely it was overheating?

Mate it doesnt have to be you engines
First for most strip the car clean it up and make sure the drive train is free and not binding any where .
They find out what is the stock needle setting for the engine .
And then tune it up .
Use a medium to cool plug .
