the pictures are too small to see... think you could get some bigger ones up please?!? If its in good shape and i see some bigger pictures, then its pretty much a done deal. ill obviously have to talk to you over PM or email though for more details once i see some bigger pictures.

i dont know how to tune a nitro engine i had my local hobby shop break in and tune the savage for me so i wouldnt have to do it myself otherwise i would have ruined alot of things.
THIS WAS YOUR MISTAKE
Plain and simple I found most LHS people couldn't tune a nitro even if their life depended on it. I'll be honest I only met one that knew a damn thing about nitros (and he was fired) out of the hobby shops I went to. One hobby shop when I started gave me literally the worst advise you could imagine I was so glad that I read up on nitros before talking to them, and double checked it here cause I would have destroyed the engine if I followed their "knowledgeable" employees instructions...

The tune of a RC needs to be altered when the atmospheric conditions change. Its usually not much, but if you do not do the changes sometimes the RC won't start period.

Also how it even broken in?

Last one I don't want to be a royal jerk, but do yourself a favor and get out of nitro(I do not say this very often at all), go buy an electric RC seeing you obviously don't want to learn to tune. Your losi will be giving you issues soon if you don't learn to tune.

All great advice. I find it especially true about LHS staff not knowing much about Nitro. When I was learning nitro, My LHS owner told me to break my 8ight 2.0 in by putting the glow ignitor on and pushing it down on the bump box for 5-10 minuteswithout any fuel in it. He then proceeded to lean the HSN and LSN out ALL the way and said that was how I should run it for the first gallon or so. As Syco said, thank god I researched everything I could on Nitros, so that I knew he was full of s**t.

i agree with syco and sigma.40 if your going to get anywere in this hobby you have to be willing to learn and not be so closed-minded. why wont you answer our questions? i would gladly buy that truck from you but you wont do anything to give a clue as to what the hell is going on.
we need information, this forum is to help people who have problems, everyone who comes on here will get the solutions they need for problems, but they are willing to talk with the people who are trying to help them

Why do you keep saying the same damn thingsover and over?

If you are so dead set on staying with nitro, why is it that you seem to have no intention of learning how to fix the problems on your own? You keep just saying that you will ruin it. Try listening to peoples adviceand try different things (like resetting the needles to factory settings and retuning it)on the Savage instead of waiting for someone to do it for you. People try to help you and you just keep writing that you are going to sell it. If you have no intentions of trying to help yourself, then sell it andstop posting.

From his first reply I thought he was trolling. Making multiple posts to get a response.
Either that or this is the most pointless thread this year.
He does not want the truck or want to fix it, so why make this post?
