SOURCE: wont start have a traxxas revo 3.3

Hello!! ,

To the point!!! , All gas cars are "Nitro" , there are "Gas" Cars but there more expensive and fairly new... , by my experience Ez starters dont have wires on them in order to start the motor.. , if you cut!! a wire.. in there maybe it could be it... , but these cars dont need ground wire.... ,Sooo if u say its ground wire i dont think theres a problem , its only incase if there's an electrical over-out-charge that will put the chips in danger... , so THIS MESSAGE IS QUITE COMPLICATED : ) ... ,
and it shouldn't turn over there not designed that way , only if you put another motor that maybe is'nt apropriate that has more speed or power if i may or it does'nt have a back "Wheel" Slider..., and if the gears got something in it well... , maybe they might chiped a "Tooth" there and is not gearing well wich may lead to more gear problems as u can imagine , check the steering batteries too , or maybe it just needs "Idle-ing" so the motor can run Fine and Dandy like Tom Hanks says jaja , but i think the problem is that your not Idle-ing it well in twisting the Knob fairly 1/8 at a time to get a smooth sense and sound of the motor because it can over heat , or maybe there's something about the carburator that's not working well , Orrrr maybe it needs a clean with white Gas in unscrewing all the "Motors" Parts and cleaning them for a while so the motor can run better , Ive got an Exceed Rc "Mad Storm" so im kinda of guessing but they all work quite almost the same , Hope this helps : ) Ciao!!!!!

SOURCE: traxxas revo 3.3 running problems

Maybe running to lean or to rich. When you accelerate put youre hand where the exhaust is and you should get a light spraying of unburnt fuel over hands(lovely!). If you do you may be able to screw in high end needle in a bit and i mean just a bit. If you hear the engine note raise a bit with a slightly higher pitch then you are running to lean and you will want to unscrew the high end needle valve asap.
Also check youre idle screw and make sure thats not closing the carb and stopping any airflow into engine. Let me know how it goes.

You could have the clutch slipping on the easy start. It's a very common problem especially on the easy start system. Los shop will take to replace that clutch but that's not necessary. You drill a small hole at the very bottom of the EZ start less than 18 if possible just enough to break through the black part of the plastic. Then you will have access to shoot contact cleaner and there which gets rid of the excess oil which is causing the slippage. One little shot in there of contact cleaner tried in the fire right up. I have lots of experience with the EZ start system but I refuse to use any other that's why I stick with Traxxas. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if answer is helpful for your question. THANK you and GOD BLESS

Have a glow plug light and motor light wont start


if you cant turn the engine over with the pull starter, you have locked up the engine by running it too lean and hard, a rebuild is in your future

Engine will fire but wont get gas new gas lines if fires wont stay running when you pull trigger talked to hobby shop and they had me rest screws for gas and air flow now wont start


Check fuel line that goes from exhaust pipe to fuel tank. Make sure there are no leaks. With fuel in the tank remove the line from the exhaust pipe and blow in it. The fuel in the tank should move and bubble.

Having problems with starting my tmaxx the ez start motor wont turn the motor over it seems like it does not have enough torque i have broke the motor in already started fine yesterday and wont start today


you might have your engine hydro locked. easy solution to this. empty your gas tank, take your glow plug out, turn your truck up-side-down and crank it over a few times. put everything back and you should be ready to play again. what happened is you probably flooded your engine. another possibility is your battery for your EZ-Start isn't charged enough, so before you go through the hassle of the above steps, check your battery first.

The thing you put on the back of the truck will not work only the motor lite comes on but i no its not the glow plug


Have you charged the battery in the EZ Start wand? If you have is the motor turning over at all? If the motor is turning over but not firing it could be the glow plug. If the motor trying to turn over but won't, the engine might be flooded. If it is flooded remove the glow plug and turn the truck upside down. Fuel will run out of the engine. If fuel runs out of the engine, put the truck back down on its wheels. Cover the engine head with a rag and turn the engine over with the EZ Start wand with the glow plug still out. This will remove all excess fuel from the engine. Reinstall glow plug and try to start again.

My 95 f3 will crank but wont start. everything was working fine replace a headlight now it wont start with the starter. battery is charged and i can push start it but the engine just cranks and cranks and...


Sounds like a wire or plug got disconnected while changing the headlight out, the harness that connects to the clutch safety switch, the one that lets the ignition fire when cranking only when the clutch is pulled in. A safety feature so you don't dump the bike if you crank it while in gear.
