First remove any excess fuel located in the fuel tank. Then Clear any fuel remaining in the fuel line and carburetor. And To clean the air filer you will need:
Soap and water
Paper towels
Filter oil
Towel (optional)

  1. Loop fuel line from Engine Carby to Pressure nipple on Tank
  2. Remove Exhaust manifold.
  3. Disconnect ball cup for carby
  4. Cap the fuel nipple and carby
  5. Remove the engine
  • Remove the clutch.
    NOTE: If you've never done this before carefully remove only the clutch bell. Clean bearings, grease thrust bearing if required and KEEP SHIMS in order. Put aside and clean clutch shoe and check the flywheel nut is tight.

    If you have the tools to remove the flywheel, you can get the crank shaft out and give the engine bearings a clean too.
  • A quick brush flush & clean of engine body and allow to dry.
    (I use spray brake cleaner. Careful with solvents that harm carby boots and internal o-rings etc.)

Undo plug, remove head, remove backplate, remove piston/rod, remove crank. Clean with alcohol, lubricate/protect and re-assemble.

Reassemble clutch, ensure free spin, good gap and a little endplay. Clean and check engine mounts and screws inspect transmission, Inspect seals, tighten carby (dont over do it, you'll snap the bolt)

install engine.

Hi, blis and charlesnitrotek, I really thankful to you for this kind of information. It will be very useful for me. But here is a problem. I do not know how to remove these things from the RC car, so I'm scared.

You can't make mistakes from learning, but you can learn from your mistakes.

Allow 30-60 minutes for RC after-run maintenance if no major repairs are needed.......And these are:
Perform a visual inspection.
Wipe down the body.
Drain the fuel tank (nitro).
Clean and oil the air filter (nitro).
Add after-burn oil (nitro).
Check tires for damage.
Check shocks/suspension.
Check screws.
Check your batteries.
Charge battery packs.
Perform any other needed repairs.

Regards.
Andy.

Yesterday I tried to tune my RC car and I removed all the things which are needed. Today I want to place it back into the car but I'm confused, but I'll do my best.
