    when you are done running your car, take out the glow plug and take off the air filter. put a few drops in your carb opening and in the cylender put the air filter back on. pull the pullstart a few times and make sure it is at bottom dead centre, and put the glow plug back in.

    i think there will always be a little oil in the pipe. burning rich is ok tho dosent hurt anything but you just might not get the performace you would want for racing and such

    RE: anyone in Vancouver B.C. Canada

    I woudln't use wd-40 as after run oil, guys. After run oil is not necessary unless your planning on storing your car for awhile. I only put after run oil in if im going to store it for a month or more. To put the after run oil in just put some in the carb and turn the engine over. If you already used wd-40, i would make sure to let it all burn out completely before giving your motor any throttle the first time you fire it up.

    i wouldnt use wd40 for aro either but to tell people not to use aro unless they are not going to use their car for a month or more is not real sound advice, moisture can get inside the engine in a matter of hours if not being used. You should use aro at the end of every running day, its cheap insurance.

    i didn't say not too, i said you dont HAVE to. I think you misunderstood what i was saying. When faced with using WD-40 or nohting, use nothing. Like i said, i dont use it in mine and i'm going on gallon 5 on my current engine, i race once a week though. Also i live in a dry environment. To each his own ,if you want to use after run oil it certainly cant hurt.

    not everyone on the forum here lives in a dry climate, i live on the east coast off the water and things rust up sometimes in the matter of hours, to generalize stuff is not such a great idea, people should use it and not after a month, after your done running for the day. You never know when your going to run again (not meaning you, meaning anyone) so a few drops cant hurt anyone.

    Anyways. I dont want to start an argument here because of my lack of knowledge, but i dont appreaciate all the advice that I am receiving..You guys are pretty cool on my books for taking the time to reply back.[8D]
    Is it common for my rear shocks to be leaking oil? I just noticed that they have some drops of oil or grease on the bottom joints. And how can i tighten them up so they wont leak

    RE: anyone in Vancouver B.C. Canada

    living out in the "beach" you would want to use after run oil at the end of each running day, i know what it's like out there. i lived in north van for 10 years and the salt in the air out there is murder on anything made of metal. like ehroof said it's cheap insurance. that guy will never steer you wrong. wd-40 is good for cleaning the outside of your rc but keep it out of the engine. if you ask anyone on this forum about ehroof they will all tell you he will never give out bad advice, he really knows his stuff. plus he is really good guy, he never made me feel stupid for asking a dumb question( ok it was a noob question lol). actualy nobody on this forum has made me feel stupid for asking any question at all. i have heard of some guys using "marvel mystery oil instead of after run oil but aro is only a few bucks, and well worth it i think.

    thanks bro for the words ranger

    also with the shocks, it depens on whic shocks you have, the aluminum shocks have a collar nut on the bottom that can be tightned, the plastic ones may need new o rings but your better off upgrading them to something better.
