ah no worries about the vid.

Mine kind of made the same noise as this one too the end, but the head + other thing that holds the glow plug in place (cant remember the name) also blew right off.

Pistion came in chunks out of the exhaust I think

lol

Then dont worry about it.

Just keep a good eye on it, the ofna .32 produces MASSIVE amounts of torque, places an added strain on the clutch.

Cant wait for my werks clutch

rc power thanks for the tip i did what u said, the plug was kinda wet with fuel.

but the real culprit was the igniter! it didnt heat up the plugs to red hot. the igniter likes good quality batteries, i cheapend out and put in zinc batteries. batteries died in less than a few minutes of use.

now that i got that problem sorted out...... it starts up in less than a couple of seconds everytime i started it! great.

now to find the time to break in the engine properly. damn gotta work tomorrow. its kinda late and i wont want to wake the neighbours up (the jp4 sounds sweet...and LOUD!)
