    Hey i have a nitro sport se with a 2.5r and it will not start, the glow plug is fine, but the washer on it is i think shot because there is space between it and the glow plug, when i try to start it it seems like its not gettyin any spark, would the threads in the cooling head maybe be messed up? i dont know what else to do, maybe buy a new car

    If it is fine just replace the washer..If the threads are messed up dont buy a new car find another cooling head..Try to replace the glow plug anyways you could have burnt it out all ready..Get a hot one to try to get it to start..or a new glow plug starter.

    Hi, I've just got hold of an old Inferno DX with the standard .21 engine in great condition with nearly another whole buggy as spares.

    I need to know the stock carb settings for the engine if anyone knows them?
    The engine starts but i cannot get it to run properly.

    I run a Revo normally but have no idea about this old buggy.

    Can anyone help??

    Well I got my car running and am trying to get the carb set right and I am haveing difficulty between the rmote and the carb itself. is there some kind of default setting on the remote? I have the knob set at2.5 times from closed now what about the screw below? is all the way closed high idle? or the other way around? Now when I pull the cord the wheels spin along with it. I am getting frustrated w/this and the instructions that came with it are translated from chinese to american and are not at all informative. Also I have ran through 3 tanks of fuel when should I start using air filter oil?

    I have a Tamiya Blackfoot and I upgraded the motor and esc, and since I am easily stripping gears. Does anyone know where I can get replacement metal gears (or even plastic if nothing else).

    Thanks

    Pro Zeta ESC question

    Hey folks. Newb here but not in the RC arena. Been into RC stuff for over 20 years. My arsenal has seen everything from off-road cars, motorcycles, boats and now helicopters.
    With that in mind, I've decided to resurrect my Monster Beetle to play with on the beaches and such. Only to discover that I've lost the instructions for my ESC: Pro Zeta by Product Design Inc.
    I tried the company site, aint there. Also tried a general search on the net. That's how I found this site, go figure....
    If any one can shoot me a copy that'd be great. locutisj@yahoo.com
    Otherwise I'm looking at getting a new ESC. Problem is, I like off-roading which almost always includes some puddles, sand, mud or even snow depending on the season. So if no luck on the instructions on the Zeta, I'll take suggestions on a new ESC that is water proof/resistant.
    One other question... Should I start looking into LiPo's, get an ESC and motor that can run on LiPo???
