Default Nitro Stall

Please Help, it's driving me insane, I can start the car no problem. I prime it, it starts, it runs, but after the fuel in the line goes it stalls. The fuel and air mix looks ok. Air gap is about 1.5mm

The only thing I haven't done is take out the glow plug and flood the engine, turn upside down with a cloth and semi tighten the plug. This is this mornings step and task.

Any ideas Nitro People, my kids think I can't pull this off

BTW the car is a Kyosho DBX 2.0

hi. try with 0.6mm air gap.And if your idle is kind of ok with 1.5mm try to lean the LSN until the idle is ok with the 0.6mm gap.
Then u might need to richen HSN

These Kyosho engines are mostly set on a very rich LSN, you can turn it in at least 1 full turn, be aware the idle will go up.

Richer on the HSN, is that screw in or out? At the moment it's level flat.

Default Problem FIXED

Problem FIXED, thanks guys. I did the old, glow plug out, flud the engine big time, turned it upside down, dried excess fuel, plug back in, re-primed engine, backed off plug by 1 turn, started first time, ran it for 1 min, tightened plug back up, tuned her, ran her for 20 mins on half throttle, re tuned her and then ran her for 2 hrs with no problems. Kids were happy
