    True.

    A tank usually lasts me around 15 mins.

    Does anyone know if new Rustlers come equipped with a 3.3, or are they still 2.5 standard?

    Thanks

    But the body has to come off in order to refuel.

    Revo 3.3 has a nice feature where you can refuel without taking it off.

    Another question.

    The idle gap should be 0-7 - 1mm when looking from the top of the air restrictor or looking from the side?

    Fair enough.

    I already did this when I had the run from the video, and when pinching the line as I stopped the car, engine turned off after 2 seconds.

    Hey

    Many thanks.
    No oil residue anywhere on or around the exhaust.
    That is a great idea, so warm it up to around 100 celsius ( think thats around 200 Farenheit) then leave it to idle while ...

    Thanks for your support.

    Is it normal when you first start the engine to be so sluggish until it warms up. Pulling on the throttle barely moves the car and it sounds like its running super rich?...

    There is no pinging at all that I could hear? Maybe the video makes it so.
