Default Ok now what?

Since it was a wonderful day out today. I decided to try and start the break in of my Backdraft 3.5 Nitro buggy. So I get it started and it ran for about 2 or 3 minutes then it just quits. I start it again and it runs for a few more minutes then quits again. It seems like its idling a little high but I checked the gap and it looks to be 1mm so I dont think its that. Any ideas as to what is wrong? I'm using Dynamite Sport 20% Nitro in it. I havent even been able to run 1 full tank thru it. Kind of getting frustrated. Anybody have any clues or any input? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi dude, check out Ali Shanmao's REDCAT BACKDRAFT vidio's on you tube, he gives a pretty good well detailed set up explenation.
He will also help with the carb settings.
Hope this helps, have fun M8.

I got into a huge dispute with that clown on youtube, I'll admit he has a good presentation(but thats it), but if you watch his videos his advise points any noobie in the direction of headaches and disaster. Funny someone mentioned him, this dispute just happened less than three weeks ago. He does not handle constuctive criticizim very well......Oh well, thats another story, guess all I'm trying to say is...I wouldnt take any of his advise on tuning or break in.

Seriously if your not willing to help, why even post?

Whats the weather like when you tried to do the break in? I suggest try heating it up first with a blow dryer or heat gun, also check for air leaks, I always seal my nitro engines before I even break them in......

It's a really long story, part of it was how he tuned the engine by trying to set the lsn first, then started messing with the hsn, then back to the low....The hsn should be set first, then mess with the low speed needle....anyways just a long story, then he started with name calling probably because he knew he was wrong. Really good for somebody who works for a company, and need to look professoinal for the customers....lol.
