Default fusion wont start

Hi rc world,

ive got a fusion 21 with a e-start and im having a few probs could any1 help.

when i try and turn the e start it just locks up and the drill forces my hand round, ive used a piar of grips to try and turn it (gently) and
it turns. ive only used the car once but it was wet and the wheels kept spinning could i have blown the engine up.
or is it just the e start.

cheers aaron

Now thats confusing. If it turns it turns. Whats the difference?

Take out the glowplug and turn it over. What happens then?

now turn it over with the drill to be sure you pump out any fuel. Then you should be able to put the plug back and turn it over with the drill again.

Most of us run 20-30% but it will run on 10%. Just not as responsive and crisp as higher nitro tuned right.

I think your drill is too weak, get a good 14.4 volt drill and you wont ever have problems turning over the engine with it.
