Hey...I work at a hobby store so no question is a dumb question! Try putting you finger over the exhaust stinger (end of the pipe). Or you can put you finger over the carb to cut off air. If you are putting it away for the night pinch your fuel line and let the fuel burn out of the engine (remmber to put a few drops of after run oil in your carb.) Some of Morgan Fuels' new stuff doesnt require after run oil.

Happy motoring

I use Sidewinder from Morgan Fuel. Should I use after run oil with this gasoline or not? Any idea? What gasoline would you recommend for training on the track with a serpent impulse running a .sx 12 nova mega engine.

I put my shoe or a screwdriver or something on my flywheel. I personally do not like the method of covering the exhaust stinger since it floods the motor. And I never pinch my lines since that would require taking off the body.

I did something very very interesting, lol... I wired my 3rd channel servo to cover up my air intake, so all I do is flip my switch on my MX3, and it moves a piece of lexan over the air filter, and pow, off it goes

Ill post pics once i get my new camera..

On time, I got bored with mine and I rigged a lighter up to my third channel. So if I felt the need to "throw some flames", it was at the push of a button. Even though it seemed to burn somewhat clear, you could still make out the edge of the flame as it was a deep purple almost. I've done plenty of other crazy things with my third channel as well, but there's no need to turn this thread into that topic. I'm just curious...What type of filter are you using? Cause all of the filters I use have air intake around the entire unit.
