Default Monster GT keeps stalling...

my friends MGT has been acting up lately. it has been through 5 plugs already, stalls 3-5 times per tank. also when he is starting it, when he takes out the glow starter, it stalls..what can be wrong?

My friends Mammoth did that.....it was way too lean. It was hard to tell because it never ran long enough to get too hot but it would fry a glow plug quick. He went through 3 plugs before we figured out what was wrong. The reason it did this is because we switched to a fuel w/ less oil in it. It ran rich with the other fuel so he leaned it out and switched fuel at the same time. [&:]

After he richened it up pretty good, it runs great again. Mine would just cut off after the switch, but I never lost plugs. I richened mine up also and it runs great again too.

If it starts it can't be the glow starter.

That is a general engine tuning question, it is not specific to the MGT......either try to help him out or find another thread please. No need to be like that. [&:][:@]

How nimble is the TQ? I thought about getting one awhile ago. Guess its too late now [&o]. It is more of a basher isn't it? I am getting into racing now. I have a new track opening next month.

It does seem to be a good basher as the videos i see at sn0w's link. Im also sure of it that its a good racer. Its like the mammoth. There both truggy's.
