    #2: I would probably start fresh but you can still try to run the engine on the old fuel. It may not be as powerful/run at all, but I'm too cheap to...

    The metal flakes you are talking about are most likely causing the glow plug failures. Turn over the engine, flush it with WD-40, and get the metal flakes out of the engine. You're gonna loose...

    Appears the picture for the clutch is broken. Oh well. It's shot. Believe me. I'm getting the part in the mail soon and I think it may be the culprit, as the engine runs fine without it on.

    Nitro Hoss

    I vote Nitro Hoss for the next Traxxas vehicle, with a few twists. And here's why:

    I suppose you could go 1/16 E-Revo, but I personally don't have any experience with it. All I know is the stampede is a pretty bulletproof truck, training mode will certainly be helpful for you....
