    If you have a shop close by take it to them to look at , Do you no anything about setting the carb. When was the last time you installed a new plug? And you really should be using 20% fuel , I suggest Trinity Monster Horse Power 20%. Yuor gonna need to get your carb. set back to Factory settings or at least close and work from there. odds are that the carb. really didnt need to be messed with , RED

    i just replaced the plug,and i did get it to run but took along time its like not getting any gas i put my finger over the pipe until the carb over flows thats the only way its starts and when it does it runs great but when u shut down the engine it wont start up again for a few mins .do u think that the sleive and piston could be worn ,and thats why its not getting gas? thanks for the help too

    i dont think its the sleeve or piston. i have to hold the throttl in a little while starting my truck cause if i tune it richer it just floods so try that. just keep it kinda lean and give it a lil gas while starting and then tune it to where it should be while ideling

    what size motor is it? I am with Red, use 20% fuel, 10% seems to run alittle hotter,but like monsterrcbuilder04 said doesnt sound like a piston/sleeve problem, more of a reset to factory settings on the carb, back to the question what motor are you running, if it's not getting gas unless you put your finger over the carb, turn your low speed 1/8th at a time to richen it up and adjust your idel a bit higher, that worked for my Picco .26

    Tighten the Brake Pads (if that dosnt work Buy new Brake pads)

    hank im not a nitro guy but i know a bit about them, check to see if the motor is hitting the chassis and also check to see if your brakes are locked up, also check to see if the clutch bell is hitting the chassis, also lift the truck up and give er full bore, if they move sluggishly and dont speed up then bring it to your local hobby store, they usually know what to do. i had a similar problem on my friends truggy.
