    Please Help

    So I got my Volcano S30 brand new yesterday, got it out today, Put Lock titght on the motor screws but not sure where the grup screws are?
    Also I tried to start it, fuel, airfilter oil, baatterys, primed it, know the glow plug works because I tested it. but it still wont start.

    So ifanyone could tell me where the grub screws and/or why it might not be starting would be awesome thanks

    you could have over-primmed it, thus flooding the motor.

    with a new motor, its a good idea to pre-heat it with a hair dryer. it will make it easier to start, or pull the recoil cord.

    there are grub screws on the drive cups for the center drive shafts.

    what fuel are you using?

    Its usually tough getting a motor to run during the break-in process. once the motor is broken in, it will be much easier to start and keep running.

    dont forget to check the "how to" vids: http://www.redcatracing.com/informat...otraining.html

    have you done the break-in process yet?
    you dont tune the motor for power before its broken in (piston to cylinder)

    its fine to be running figure 8's. but you need to do a couple more tanks of that, each time leaning out the high speed needle alittle. this allows the motor to heat up alittle more each tank.
    no harsh full throttle or harsh braking until the breakin is done.
