RE: baught a tornado XP anything i need to know?
Well true to the name, they are pretty much ready to run. Other than installing all the batteries and making sure everything is working correctly in the servo dept you should be ok. Just add some fuel to the tank and then put your finger over the exhaust opening to plug it up. Then pull the starter cord and you'll see fuel start to flow to the engine. Once you get it there stop pulling on the cord, add one or two more drops directly into the carb where the air filter sits. Be sure to put some air filter oil on the filters themselves. I just used mineral oil and I hear that vegetable oil works fine aswell. Just go ahead and rub it in there. You don't want to completely saturate it but make sure there's enough so that it goes all the way through the filter. After that be sure to start it on a stand of some sort so when the engine does start it doesn't run away from you. Also a nice little tip, short fast strokes on the pull cord are preferred. These pull cords are a little notorious for breaking so be sure not to pull it out too far. Once you get it started adjust the throttle on the remote control so your wheels stop spinning but so the brake isn't engaged. Once you get those few baisics done then it's time to start breaking that engine in. As for breaking it in check out this thread.
