From my own expeirence, Make sure your glow plug is tight! I was running full throttle when all of a sudden i heard a bang and my car body was 4 feet in the air!..... the glow plug had come loose and fired a dime-sized whole in the roof of my sedan taking the body and bodyclips off at the same time! Priceless!!!!!!!!!
