so basically from what I have read in each and every problem thread in the forums is.... Junk the electric start since it really isnt butch enough to do the job, forget the roto start because anything with a oneway bearing is just asking for trouble, and a pullstart... LOL.. ill just leave that one alone. So just stick with a starter box yes?

Wow, ok, I ordered a starter box and a 12V gel cell battery. No charger. Anyway. for the time being I installed a pull start off of my HPI. First pull EVERYtime cuts it on. Warm, cold dont matter. EVERYtime. Although I do have blisters to prove I got a pull start.

wierd, this is the second time I KNOW i posted something but it didnt show up. Anyway, now everything is worked out starting wise. Funny thing is I cant set it up right between the breaks and the throttle. The thing keeps on shutting off every now and then like when I brake, and the throttle likes floating/sticking on its own after i give it throttle often. Sometimes, only when im running it, the throttle will up on its own. weird, I cant figure it out. Any more help would be great. Thanks.

Try putting all your radio settings to the neutral position, and then reset all your linkages on your buggy, set the idle opening, and the break, just remember to never set your linkages with the trim on the radio.

Sounds like its out of tune and/or the idle isn't set properly.
4 or 5 tanks and your ready to throw in the towel?? Its not even broke in yet, and most certainly not tuned properly.
Trust me, trading up or buying the most expensive Nitro RTR will not make your intro to Nitro 101 any less frustrating.
