    Exclamation Slash fuel line issue

    So recently my Slash has been a pain to start but once I get it warmed up it's fine. I changed the glow plug and that did nothing then I got new fuel line and that's where a whole new and even worse problem started. The tubing I got is DuBro medium blue and once I put that in my car it would start up right away but wouldn't run after I took the glow igniter out. I put my old line back in and now it runs but still has the same problem starting. Why would the dubro line do this and does it mean I have to order Traxxas branded line? (My LHS doesn't carry it)

    It may be pure coincidence. Brand fuel line does not matter. Try to stay about the same size as stock.

    Start back at factory settings and for giggles replace the glow plug. Also verify the entire system is air-tight so that air only enters the air filter and exits the pipe.

    Well I just checked the two lines and the dubro has a smaller inside diameter.

    Go to your Hobby Shop & get the TRAXXAS Stock Fuel Line for the Slash... Before I changed over to all Electric 4 years ago I RAN NOTHING but TRAXXAS Fuel lines & Glow Plugs..... In my Slayer Pro 4x4 / T-MAXX 3.3 & reset to factory default engine settings & go from there also it wont be a bad thing to put a drop or two of after-run oil in the head & throttle body I ALWAYS did that in my engines & NEVER HAD AN ISSUE other than basic tuning on a run
