SOURCE: i just got a used rc car from a friend its a older one

Kyosho makes good R/C's
to start any nitro car you need new or fully charged batteries in both the car and the transmitter. ensure that the steering and throttle servos move freely before attempting to start. also check the condition of the filter and the glow pug in the cylinder head....8mm or 5/16" to remove.

now you need a glow igniter or similar and some 20% nitro fuel

last you will need a starting device, starter box or maybe it has a pull starter.

fill tank (not too full) prime the carb (pushbutton on fuel tank or by blowing into the hose that connects from the exhaust to the tank) turn on radio, attach glow igniter and start, remove igniter after a minute of running and have fun.......some carb adjustments may be needed
clockwise to lean and counter clockwise to richen
engine should run at around 220 to 240 degrees F.
if you don't have a temp gun then spit should sizzle on the head when up to temp. pinch fuel line or remove air filter and block carb to kill

note...when it runs out of fuel it will run faster and hotter right before it dies as it's running lean. always drain leftover fuel out of tank when done and be cautious of fuel dripping out of the exhaust ruining whatever it drips on. good luck

My car starts easy first time and runs for 5 minutes then die and wont start up.

May be a simple thing sounds like fuel , check that your fuel filler cap breathe hole is not blocked , try running the vehicle without cap on a short distance to see if removing cap Cures problem. If not I would suspect fuel pump is on the fritz or maybe in line fuel filter needs repalcing

The volcano breakes do not work 100% WHEN RUNNING FULL SPEED AND I PULL THE BREAK, THE Tires do not stop like the shockwave. i bought new pads, tweack the screws,,,, nothing...maybe it is normal ?

I just got my Volcano S30 Friday, breaks worked great for 1 run not full speed, second run low speed no breaks at all, adjusted the linkage as requested by red at racing breaks worked good for 1 run then same thing no breaks, manually checked the breaks by hand the pad stops like it should except the wheels keep turning and the drive shaft as well.

Was driving it then it stopped pulling and all the motor does is rev up. brand new and hasnt been wrecked


You need to check the centrifical clutch as it sounds like you have either thrown the lining or there is something preventing it from engaging.

The clutch is located at the output shaft end of the motor there will be a bowl shapes metal case over the clutch in which you will find the clutch lining.

Let me know how you get on and if you need further help.

I lost my instruction manuel and i dont know how to put oil in the airfilter

pop air filter of.Carefull not to let anything get down into engine. Remove sponge. If theres 2 sponges then you need to coat the inner sponge. pour a little onto sponge and squeeze so it gets into all the holes. give it the sponge a good last squeeze holding over jar to get rid of excess as this will prevent air from entering engine. Fit air filter back on. Good idea to have a few spare so when one is used others can be washed and dryed. Either wash in wasing up liquid and dryed or nitro fuel and dryed.Hope this helps.

Why wont my revo go into reverse

try setting your idle down a little more. if your idle is too high, it wont shift into reverse. also check your linkage. make sure it pulls all the way out and pushes all the way in when it is off. try starting it with it already in reverse and see if it works, if it does, then it is more than likely your idle.
