Default Turning an Engine Over

Well, I have had a nitro truck before, but it had been broken in for me. I now have a NTC3 with brand new engine. I am having problems getting it to turn over. I cannot get the starter box to turn the flywheel enough to get gas into the engine. Could it be the motor of the starter box?

Any suggestions?

Its porbably because the engine is new ... tight tolerances these days!

Use a heat gun or something to pre-heat the engine and try to turn it over when warm.

Okay, so I have gotten the engine to go, but it only runs for less than a second then dies.

what is going on?

Loosen the glow plug a little until it runs and slowly
tighten glow plug whilst running.
