im assuming u mean after run oil

ive heard wd40 works, so does tranny oil


u dont put fuel in coz your trying to get a mixture that breaks down the fuel left so it doesnt corode the internals of your engine... that would be defeating the purpose of after run oil

about the WD_40 thing.
i meant, some people run the engine until there is abosultely no fuel in the engine(ie, no fuel in tank left, but still some in the carbie). Others spray wd-40 down the carb, and run it with the leftover fuel. (gets a really bad smell)

You should run all the fuel out of the engine and then put something like Automatic Transmission Fluid or After-Run oil in it. Put a few drops down the carb, turn the engine over a few times, then put a few drops down the glowplug hole and turn the engine over until you think the internals have been coated enough.

just started with 15% nitro. AMAZing difference from 5%. the car sounds so much nicer and FLIES!

What do you guys have as you set up because i was playing with the camber(i mean the angle of the rear wheels to the car) and making the car oversteer and understeer. i could not get it riight though.

anyone lives in sydney on the north shore near gordon om me and we can meet up and have a play around at the train station carpark! it is cool up there.


i also put the car into a wall pretty hard. that goodness for the FAT bumper at the front.

Ok for a standard type set-up that isnt going to destroy tyres try

FRONT
toe-in/out= 0deg
Camber 1.5deg/ \
Caster all spacers to front or 1 small to rear
50wt shock oil for loose track/60wt for good grip

REAR
2 deg toe in
1.5 deg / \
40-45wt shock oil

Thats a start anyway

That's what we mean... turn the engine over = either put it on your starter box for a few seconds or pull the starter cord a few times.
