Default Help on new Duratrax Nitro Quake

Hi. I just ordered a Duratrax Nitro Quake. I started with electric cars and trucks and am now heading to nitro. Please post any advice you have for operating and maintaining a nitro monster truck. One question I have right now is: Will it be safe for the engine if I switched fuels, given they're the same nitro/lubricant content?

Default RE: Help on new Duratrax Nitro Quake

Hey,

For the Nitro Quake I recommend using Duratrax Red Alert 10% nitro Fuel. Watch the video that came with it. Make sure all the metal to metal screws are tight especially the grub screws on the dog bones and differentials. It's a very good truck and you will enjoy it. Turn the highspeed needle 3 turns from fully closed. Also buy a Temperature gauge and keep the engine below 220 degrees.
The engine might be a little hard to start at first or during break, give it some throttle that usually helps. If you use 20% nitro Fuel expect some tuning problems and over heating, and turn the highspeed needle 3 and 1/2 turn from fully closed.
Have fun!
