Default g3.0 engine problem.

Ok, my engine starts the first pull when it is cold, but when it is hot, it take about 10-15 pulls to start in, can anybody help me?

its because when the engine is hot, the engine expands meaning less compression. You nead a fairly high compression to start a nitro engine. ALso, when its hot just give it like half throttle while pulling, or let it cool before restarting.
