ADJUSTING THROTTLE / BRAKE LINKAGE
b
c
a. To set the throttle/brake linkage, first the radio should be on and neutral; thus, the servo is at neutral
position.
b.
With the servo at neutral, turn and adjust the brake collar to a point where the brake lever almost
engages the brake system, but not yet.
c.
With the servo at neutral, loosen the throttle collars. Then, manually close the carburetor, and set
the collar (next to the spring) with the spring slightly compressed. Then, set the other collar next to
the linkage pivot.

ADJUSTING CARBURETOR
a.
b
c
To set the carburetor idle (small needle sticking out from the carburetor body), turn the screw as
pictured. Initial idle setting should leave 1mm carburetor gap. Clockwise turn will provide higher idle
(larger carburetor opening), and counterclockwise turn will provide lower idle (smaller carburetor
opening).
b. To set the high speed needle (large needle sticking out from the carburetor body), turn the screw as
pictured. Initial high speed needle setting should be 2.5 turns (close the needle completely, then back
out 2.5 turns). Clockwise turn will provide leaner setting (lower fuel to air mixture), and counterclockwise
turn will provide richer setting (higher fuel to air mixture). Please refer to ENGINE BREAK-IN/SETTING
procedures to properly set the engine.
c.
Remove the outer foam from filter and make it moist evenly with a few drops of fuel. If the vehicle
will be operated in an area with fine dust, use filter oil or caster oil instead of fuel. It is important that
the foam is only moist to trap dirt and allow air passage. With the foam too wet, limited air can pass
through; therefore, limiting engine performance. Finally, make sure the air cleaner boot is securely
fastened with a zip-tie.

b.
Remove the cap from fuel bottle nozzle.
c.
Fill car's fuel tank with glow fuel.
Squeeze the fuel bottle, insert into fuel, and draw fuel into the fuel bottle. The fuel used should be
methanol based model engine glow fuel (available at hobby shops) with 10% to 20% nitro content
and 5% to 18% caster/synthetic oil content for lubrication.

a.
b.
To start an engine, first remove the glow plug.
c.
d.
e.
With the radio off, manually turn the servo to open the carburetor (open throttle).
f.
Check the glow plug by plugging it into the glow plug igniter. The glow plug element should light up
brightly. If it lights up dimly, then the glow plug igniter is low (and it needs recharging). If it does not
light up or the plug element looks distorted, then the glow plug is bad (replace with new one). After
checking, reinstall the glow plug.
The glow plug used for this engine can be: Thunder Tiger 9281, McCoy #9 / #59,
Novarossi C4S / C5S / C6S,OS #8 / #A3 / #A5, and Picco P6S / P7S.
Plug the tuned pipe exhaust tip.
Keeping the exhaust tip plugged, pull on the engine's starter. Keep doing it until fuel reaches engine's
carburetor, then pull it 3 more times to prime the engine.
Manually return the servo back to neutral.

STARTING THE ENGINE
c
b
a. Turn on the radio (transmitter first, then receiver).
b. Clip the glow plug igniter onto engine's glow plug.
c. Pull on the engine starter, release, repeat until the engine starts.
Throttle maybe required to be opened momentarily, but
release throttle back to neutral immediately after the engine starts.
Remove the glow plug igniter from engine after engine has started and warmed up. If the engine stops right after the igniter is
removed, the carburetor setting is too rich. Please refer to engine setting section.
If engine starter becomes hard to pull, the engine maybe flooded. To unflood an engine, remove the glow plug from engine, flip
the car upside down, and pull on the starter to release excess fuel. Then, reinstall the glow plug and repeat the engine starting
procedure.

ENGINE BREAK-IN
For a new engine (break-in setting), the high speed needle needs to be set as rich as possible. Turn the high speed needle 1/4 turn
counterclockwise from initial setting (2.5 turns from fully closed). Repeat step 15b. Keep doing this until the engine stalls at full throttle,
then turn the high speed needle 1/4 turn clockwise. Run the car in an open parking lot with this rich engine setting for at least 5 tanks
of fuel to complete the break-in process. It is normal for a new engine to stall many times during this time due to the rich setting.
When it does, just restart the engine. After break-in, follow the ENGINE SETTING procedure to set the carburetor for normal operations.
ENGINE SETTING
Due to different fuel formula, operating elevation, humidity . . . etc., the engine may/may not operate properly at initial setting. Please
follow the following procedure to achieve proper carburetor setting. Do not perform this procedure until the engine has been properly
broken in.
a.Start the engine.
b.With a running engine, run the car back and foreth in a straight line (full throttle achieved furing each passage) in an open parking
lot. Repeat and note the sound of the exhaust. Do not hold the throttle open with car off the ground or the engine connecting rod
may break.
c.If the exhaust does not reach a high pitch note, turn the high speed needle (long needle, extending from carburetor body, pointing
up) 1/4 turn clockwise, and repeat step 15b.
d.Repeat step 15c until the engine reaches optimum setting (turning in the high speed needle will no longer have an effect at full
throttle and turning out the needle will cause the engine's full throttle rpm to drop a little). For normal operations, turn the high
speed needle 1/4 turn counterclockwise from the optimum setting.
e.To set the idle, turn the idle screw in (higher rpm) or out (lower rpm). Basically, the idle needs to be set at the lowest possible point
before the engine stalls.
f. To set the low speed needle (inside the throttle lever), the engine needs to be broken in and high speed needle needs to be set first.
g.Repeating step 15b every 10 seconds (1 second full throttle and 10 seconds idle). If the engine rpm at idle drops after a few seconds
and stalls, then turn in the low speed needle (clockwise) 1/4 turn. If the engine rpm stays the same or goes up at idle, then turn out
the low speed needle (counterclockwise) 1/4 turn.
h.Keep repeating step 15g until the engine rpm drops (goes to idle rpm, then drops a few more rpm after a few seconds) but does
not stall.
