Default RE: EK-4 Who owns one!

After listening to my local dealer I purchased a MGT and a gallon of 20% Nitro. Six motor later I was thinking that 20% was too much for the hot summers her in the California. I got my ek-4 from tower and two gallons of 5% nitro and it runs very well and I still have the first motor. One problem I did not check the servo screws on the throttle and I got away from and ran wide open into the third house down. broke a wheel and I had to align the front end. I bought a new set of wheels and some big joe 40 tires for it and will try them very soon. I like it very much and using 20% nitro makes no sense as it wheelies all the time and it's too hard on the motor. get one! wo

I had one donated to me a while ago, havent got it started yet though, as it is extremely out of tune due to the previous owner changing fuels, and not really knowing how to tune it. wuill post more comments when the beast awakens...

Mate:
your going to need a eletric drill and a hot glow plug like McCoy #59. Make sure your pipe bolts are tight with some air nuts. Make sure you use a rich mixture and low Nitro like 10%. Let me know how you are doing. wo
