My Nitro Engine Won't Start

Hey Everyone

Need help. I have a XRAY NT18MT with a nitro engine that ran for about 2 or 3 months with no issues and now all of a sudden it won't start. I have replaced the glow plug, cleaned out the fuel tank, new fuel lines, made sure the battery for the starter box is charged, everything I can think of.

This is my first nitro and I did by it second hand. Any ideas, suggestions. I do currently have it up for sale or trade.

Re: My Nitro Engine Won't Start

If you stored your fuel in your garage on the concrete floor over the past three months you may have bad fuel especially with the way our weather has been lately. Also you may want to find the factory settings for your carburetor and set ur needles to factory setting and start over.
