So afterrun oil really makes it that hard to start after you use it?

only if you use too much. only 2-3 drops in the carb and glow plug hole, then pull the starter a few times and your ok.

After run oil is basically 2 stroke oil.

Go to your local walmart and buy a quart of 2 Stroke/Outboard oil for $3 and you have a lifetime supply.

I personally dont use the 2 stroke oil myself because Im lazy. I use a rattle can with syntheic lube out of convenience.

to be more precise, after run is a mineral oil so you can even use baby oil if you had too! LOL not that I have tried myself...

I read that you have to put 2-3 drops of ARO in then turn the car upside down and pull the pull start to get the extra oil out. Then do the 2-3 more times. Should I only do that once or 3?

I just picked up some Hobbico afterrun oil to add to my toolbox... that stuff IS Marvel mystery oil! Smell, consistency, and color are as exact as I could tell with the botle of MMO from my garage (use the stuff all the time @ work)

I just followed what Traxxas does on their break in video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoLFuoL09ko If they say its ok I'm sure its ok to use WD40. I don't think they would risk law suits telling people to use a product that would prematurely damage Nitro Engines.

Well just did some reading and a lot of people use WD40 and their engines last for years. It can't be that bad for the engine. I'd probably break the engine from abuse way quicker then with WD40 damage

In my opinion, using WD40 would probably be better than not using anything. WD does evaporate after time, but for piece of mind I'll stick to the "after run" stuff.

Just get afterrun oil. It's not expensive and you don't even have to pull your plug. everytime I use it, i just drop it in the carb, pull the cord a few times and let it sit. So far so good

Everyone has their opinions! WD40 will not harm your motor in any way, some like using it and some like using after run oil! I use nothing and still have all factory motors in everything i own and have owned some of them for more than 8 years(still driving them as well)!

It doesnt have enough solvents to be a penatration lube. Its designed to displace mosture in engines, farm equipment and so on. I use it in all of my rc vehicle with no problems. Im not saying that afterun doesnt work, it does, and well, but i use so much WD that I do not want to have to by anyother product when it works well. If you read the back of the can you will see why. Just my .02

i used to use wd 40 to clean the bearing on my router bits i use to trim lamintes, but the bearing would always burn out, i never undersood why but my tool guy said that wd40 also has a cleaner in it and thats why my bearings were going bad, he said i should use a rag with 3 in one on it or trans fluid and it works great and the bearings last now. i would have to think that it was the wd that ruined the bearings but your also talking about a bearing that turned as some serious rpms, like an rc engine. I do use wd40 to clean my rc's and it works great, i spray then down completely and let it sit for a few minutes then use a compressor to blow them clean and dry and they come out looking like brand new.
