Default Haven’t run my trucks for a while…what should I do or know?

The last time I bashed any of my nitro trucks was in the beginning of the summer. I am going all through the trucks checking things. (electronics, tranny, linkages, ect) Is there anything else I should know about or do before i start them again?

Thanks

if you're truck uses an internal 1-way to start it, then check that, if they soak in fuel for a while, sometimes they need to be cleaned or else they will slip. other than that, maybe look at your breaks

I agree. But not only someafterrun oil i would say check the inside of the engine to make sure everything is still in good working order, ALSO **Reset the tuning back to factory settings** Im sure you going to end up doing a bit of re-tuning so you might just want to save time and re-set the tuning

same here, getting back into the hobby pretty soon. I have 2 lst's so I think after run oil and some lube would be a good idea.
