Default won't go straight

Help me out..please !

two simple questions:

1. my wheels seem alighned, but when I let the car go it leans to the right... how do I adjust it. tires are not glued right ?

2. when I ride the car and it runs out of gas or stalls for some other reason, its really hard to get it started again.. Most of the time I let it cool down for several minutes and only then I can get it going again.. is this normal or do I need to start thinking about possibly rebuilding it?

I have a Mugen Prime 12 ... all stock

thanx for your help,

Slavka

have you found out how to adjust the "steering trim" on your radio? You should be able to adjust the trim to the left or right. This should help you keep the car tracking straight.

re: Richen the motor a little, maybe you are running it to lean, thus overheating the engine. They will always be hard to start when they are too hot. The fuel may evaporate in the carby.
