Default How do I keep my cars running after startup??

I have a couple of nitro vehicles and I always have to restart them like 3 times before they keep running, any suggestions on how to keep them going on the first startup?? Thanks

Leave the glow starter on for 15-20 seconds once started, then gently feather the throttle. Heck, leave the glow warmer on up to 30 seconds...or more.

Then the engine will be warm and happy and clear out without stalling.

There is a good chance your low end is a touch rich, and the excess fuel is washing out the plug. The above tips can remedy this situation, but go ahead and lean out the low end ever so slightly.

Or even try a hotter plug.

when you start them set the throttle trim so it opens up the carby (just a little bit!!!!)
then onceits warm et it back to its original position
make shure its not leaving the throtle open and not letting the brakes rub.
hope this helps.
