Step #1:

If you look at the screws of your nitro car, you may notice that the car is using metal screws, so you have to carefully airtight between the engine, manifold and exhaust!

If you forget to tighten them properly, the car engine will be too difficult to run, for example, you can tighten all the screws until you feel it squeeze.

But there is a huge possibility that screws will collapse as a result of the extra pressure, so stay away from it and tighten the screws as much as you need

Step #2:

When you adjust the Idle Screw, you should turn off your radio handset because it can make some issues!

Remember, the more air you let into your car engine, the quicker your car will run, Because the more air you circulate, the more oxygen you will produce!

Step #3:

 Now in this step, you’ll need to connect the high speed primary needle with your engine. At the same time, 

Your other low speed needle will be pre-setted correctly at the factory, but you don’t need to connect it, but you have already connected it, you have to set it back!

Step #4:

Take a little help from your glow plug wrench and try to remove the glow plug from the top of the car’s engine. This will help to pull simply and your engine will just make a little bit prepping noises as well!

Holding the flywheel, pull the pull-start a little bit to make it loose and needs tightening. If everything goes well, then follow the next step!

Step #5:

Unflood Your Engine, and Check Your Glow Start And Glow plug, and finally Prime & run The Engine!
