I cant believe how crap these nitros really are. THis is the first one i have ever bought. All my previous ones were electric. I can safely say, this will be my last.

If i were you i would have went with a pull start engine or starter box engine. The roto start for hpi is kind of a new thing.

dont get discouraged. They are usually never this hard to start. I think you got a bad car. Something is locked up in the engine. Its hard to help you over the internet, I would take it to your lhs and see if they can start it. If noit get a refund or a new car. Once they are going they are a real blast.
Good Luck

o donnel fuel doesnt light in glow starters? What does that mean? I guess you can try using different fuel, but if the odonnel is fresh, there shouldnt be a problem with it.
Good Luck

BTW youve yet to confirm to us that youve reset the needle setting.....and here is one last tip. Its the all out , do it or nothing.

Just goto start your motor and with a tuning screw on the high-speed needle. Just start turning it slowly clockwise until the sucker fires.

If you go about 2 full turns inward and nothing happens. Just stop. Bring it into a hobby shop.

I think if someone shows you what to do you would be better off than us telling you over and over and wondering what you really did. Ive seen stuff like this before. People dont listen and try half of the things or think there swapping out of fuel and glow plugs last night is good enough.

Like I said the shop will probably have your motor started within minutes....probably the only thing that will take time is them getting there tools out.
