Default new to the R/C world

this last weekend i bought a used HPI RS4 evo the original own took great care of the car and i'm loving it but all of a sudden i started having problems getting it to start i think it has to do with the tuning of the engine or maybe that i'ma noob lol anyway when i crank her i and take the glow plug out i can smell fuel in the chamber and i tested the glow plug i took the engine apart to check all the seals and they are good i just don't get it i'm wondering if their is something that i missed anyone that can give me pointers it would be great ty

if it started up fine before and you didn;t adjust any needles it could be:

-you need a new plug
-the glow plug warmer is flat
-the engine needs to have the idle lifted up a bit

if these things don't work, then take it to a track, and ask if you can get help from someone.

is this your first nitro? deff not a great beginers car lol. but it sounds like tuning. you should find someone really experienced and asked them to tune your car and show you some tips, your going to need to tune your car all the time. a tune wont last for ever.
