Question about Redcat Racing Earthquake 3.5 1/8 Redcat R/c Nitro Monster Rc Truck

Open Question

Earthquake 3.5 Starting tips

If your like me and are new to nitro you may get frustrated trying to get it started at first. I spent the last 3 days checking over everything on my truck after doing a rebuild and couldn't get the truck started.

First thing you should check is your glowplug, if you put that in your igniter and it glows nice and bright then it is fine and put it back in.

second thing is, are you priming the engine fully? maybe give it another 1 or 2 pulls while plugging the exhaust to be sure. If it still wont start you should move on to checking your intake.

How much of a gap is there in the carb when you take the air filter off? I had to open mine up a little more to get it running properly but every engine is different.

If you are still having problems you may need to adjust your carb needles slightly. The factory settings will not work for everybody.

As long as you have good compression (you should feel resistance in the pull cord) you should be running by now.

Where I recently did a rebuild I checked over all of the screws EXCEPT the head which was causing me to lose compression and it wouldn't start.

If you don't like maintenance,troubleshooting or repairing then this is the wrong hobby for you!

SOURCE: engine will not stay running

Change glow plug first. And adjust to factory settings. Also nitro motors depending on outside temp can vary..

Have a 2006 s80. Serviced last month. Got oil and filter changed. Check engine light came on a day before oil change. which it did last year and shut off after the oil change. This time it stayed on.


042 is brake position sensor code. That sensor is used primarily to cancel the cruise control but may also be used for abs, if your car is equipped. Can you get an odb scan to see why the check engine light is on? The engine light does not indicate oil changes, so something else is wrong. We need that code, which starts with P and has four digits after the P.

Dodge Nitro unhappy


lemon laws are a little different in all states, but the basics are- the dealer has your vehicle 30 business days in the first 12 months of ownership. 3 unsuccesful repair attempts at the EXACT same problem, that resulted in you returning with an unfixed problem after thinking it was fixed. i have not seen any problems with nitro's yet. what problems are you having?
