yup///could be ur throttle trim too...set idle screw to 1 mm open by looking in the throat of the carb...high end needle should be around 2 1/2 and low should be flush.(approx 2 to 2 1/2...should get ya runnin and adjust from there....

I just received hpi roto start and back plate (also battery and charger),glow plugs, fuel tubing, after run oil, air filter oil (1 case, they made an accident), and tie straps. So I charge up everything and started her up then i had problems keeping her running but anyways i got it running so i went for a run but I just couldn't get the gears to mesh properly so it resulted in me stripping the 1st gear.[:@]
so what exactly do i need?

Save yourself lots of time and money and swap to the one speed set-up.. Won't go through gears near as often. And yes I know it's slower but it will save tons.

My steering servo saver is worn out, probably because the bigger tires and lower gearing. Anyone know of one that works and holds up better?
