Default Will It Run???????

I have a HPI RS4 with the HPI .12 on it and it has been sitting with fuel in it for the last year. I tried about six mounths ago and it didn't run. The reason I didn't think it ran because of the bad fuel in it. Do you think this is this true. I pulled it out today and started cleaning it and was wondering if it will run. I'll try it tommorow with new fuel. Do you think it will run???????

thanks
jim

Well I ran it yesterday and it ran. But it ran like crap. I drove it around and then it started bogging down alot. When it killed i checked the compresion and there was none. i could pull the starter with my pinky. DO you know what this means.

Was it hot at the time? A hot engine may be easier to pull through.

Was the glow plug loose?

Was the head loose?

What fuel did you use?

I don't want to sound like a jerk, but why did you reply to an 8 year old thread?

The guy who started this thread hasn't been online for 7 years.

And I think you misread the "8 year old" part...the thread itself is 8 years old.
