Thanks for youe help Artificial-I. I have been having trouble starting my engine and therefore have to really tune it. I checked out the site you gave me and it really helped me out a lot. I am going to try tuning the engine to the setting shown on the website so that at least i can start it. I am runing 25% nitro and a #5 turbo glow plug does that have anything to do with i. What do you recommend

and if that doesn't work, I have had an issue with an engine one time that I had to take the high end needle and turn it out to flush and while rolling the engine with the igniter on it it, slowly keep turning the low end needle till the engine fired. Once there, I turned the idle up a bit and kept the engine running. That at least geve me a starting point when the engine gave me issues. Remember, the engine will only do what it has been told to do.
