RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

I find it a novelty vehicle. Fun to tinker with, but it's not a serious performer, although it's fun on pavement. Not really a good choice for a beginner either. As you said, fussy little engine. I...

I disconnected teh...

RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

That's too bad. Don't thow it out quite yet. I'm sure you'll have much better luck with the HPI, and once you do, you might get renewed interest (plus confidence and experience)in trying to get the...

RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

Most of us prime the enigne by plugging the exhaust and cranking the engine over. ...

RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

It is certianly starting to sound like your radio equipment is defective.

One last test. With the Rx already on, switch on the TX. If the servos glitch at all when the TX is turned on, then...

RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

Now mine isn't the Vulcan, but it basically the same, but with a lot of aluminum (bling), so I don't jump it much. It's the VTX-MB1. Anyways, here's what I found:

RE: vulcan 1/8 nitro car problem

If blowing on the muffler did not force fuel to the carb, you probably have an airleak somewhere. On mine, it was the fuel tank lid not sealing. It can also be the pressure line from the muffler...
