Hi mate,

I'm no nitro expert but I suspect the experts who do lurk the boards are going to want a little more info to help identify the problem.

Does the motor have compression? Glow plug is ok? Does it start and then stall or just not start at all?

I wont have the answers for you but a little bit more info and I'm sure someone on here will point you in the right direction.

Use the shim before the flywheel.
