Got some ideas for protecting your servo and disipating heat from the motor...

Alright guys, I've got a question.

My rear sway bar seems to be acting unevenly. Both the cup side and ball side are perfectly flat. But for some reason, when I compress the suspension on the cup side(left side), the other suspension compresses a little more than when I do the same with the ball side(right side). I hope that makes sense.

What I ended up doing was rotating the cup side bar to about a 15 degree angle. This kept the reaction the same for the ball side while the cup side (left side) suspension is being compressed. BUT, now when I compress the ball side(right side) suspension, the left suspension reacts the same as the right.

So basically now both sides react equally to opposite side suspension compression, but I have one bar level while the other is angled slightly.

My question is, is this the correct way to equalize the sides, or is there a better way to achieve this?

Thanks

alright guys, I am about to start crying.

my mongoose with a brand new nova rossi RS 12 wont start, i dont know why

it started at first and I ran it for 3 min at low to 25% throttle then i shut it off after 3 min to do the heat cycle method, the piston was at the bottom. then when I went to fire it up it wont start, I don't know why.

i spent an hour and lost a gallon of sweat trying to start it in my garage.

my glow plug still burns brightly, and the engine turns easier.

I only have two notes, I lossen the clutch more then .5mm because someone told me on their r40 they had to do the same thing, and also when I hold the pipe closed to prime it I see bubbles in the tank, like foamy bubbles.

anyone know whats going on? plz help if you have any, i am going nuts here!

can it be my clutch is too lose? or what?

Since you are getting bubbles in the tank R U sure the fuel's getting to the carb.

yes positive, I took out the glow plug and turned the engine on the box, fuel spurtted out and when I turn the engine upside down and turn the fly wheel fuel runs out.

so fuel is getting there

but i dont know what is wrong.

Make sure the flywheel is tight and not slipping and try cranking the engine while pinching the fuel line. This will burn off any extra fuel in the engine. Sometimes engines won't start with to much fuel in them.

quick question,

my carb is aluminum, could it be that I have to let the engine cool off completely before i try starting it again?

because i remove all the fuel from the engine and try it and it wont start.

The carb usually doesn't get hot enough to vapor lock unless its been running. If it still doesn't start you might have to take it to someone who can see and hear what is going on.

Also try pulsing the the engine on the starter box when you try to start it. Sometimes engines won't start when you just hold it down on the box.

try pulsing the engine with the starter box when you start it ie. 2 seconds running 2 seconds off.
