i bought a losi 8-ight truggy 2.0 and im having a pretty major problem

when i go to start it up on my bump box its like the moter is super compesed and wolnt turn it over. i bought it used from a guy who said its hardly be used. i took it to the local hobby shop and they said the fault does not lay in the bump box but that the motor has never been broken in and that its just tight. he said to heat it up with a heat gun to expand the metal to loosin it up. it didnt work same over compresed felling. iv tryed to take the glo plug out and see if it turns over or if its flodded. it turned over fine. i could turn it over easy with my finger. and it wasnt flooded.and i know that the bump box is allined right. any tips

Start it with a loose plug. When running, tighten the plug.

The engine won't turn over with the glow plug tight. This is not all that unusual with a new engine. The engine will turn over with the glow plug out or loose. I fail to see your problem. If it turns over with a loose plug, as you say, then start the bugger up.

I had some thing similar with my os28zx. I had a losi box with two 550 motors and it just couldn't do it, li-po 2s 3s. It would spin fine untill the car was pushed on it and then it would just turn slowly. I then bought an Ofna box with two 750 motors and have had no problems at all. you may not think its your box but I would try someone else's if you can.
