If you have a transmitter that allows for EPA (end point adjustment) set the
servos up so that they aren't working against themselves. For instance, the
throttle servo - no point in the servo trying to pull or push the carb more
than it will go. This causes stress on the servo and extra battery drainage.

Hope this makes sense!
yes this improved batt life on my buggy it was tryin to push way too far b4hand,would never of thought,,nice1 bud

just a few key points

it wont make any odds about having a pull start or roto start on becoz they both use oneway bearings so wont have any more or less drag on the engine so wont make it rev higher with either but correct plug and tunning will.

also depending on what roto start kit you get you may need to change the one way bearing and also make sure your set the clutch loose if you use a leky drill as you can severley damage the engine if you leky drill cranks its when it is flooded.

there is a few previous post's on this forum about leky starts for the raptor also.

 

alright m8,i bought a e z start roto for my raptor after getting advice from the bloke i bought it off,he said this is the best starter for my rappy n i wont need to change a thing,but after it slipping n not tryin to turn over i replaced the 1way bearing with the exact 1 i took outn still no joy so after a mission couple of months i finally got a secondhand hex starter shaft that goes thru 1way b thinking my 1 had worn,after replacing that its abit better but still nower near right n like alot people say lots of fuel around roto adapter area,now im thining if its flooding will this cause the hex shaft to slip in 1way b??? also wats the correct glow plug to have in my rappy sh25??? mine went n i just got a old 1 off a plane engine,it works but after reading ur post i know i need a new 1 but which??? nice1 if u can help n thanks for takin time to read this,,,,,, nige

hey, i have a little tip that iv found brilliant,i havnt read every page on here so forgive me if it is already on here,shells, well uv got to of noticed how bloody flimsy they are they crack n tear like paper especially after a good smash,,iv coated the inside of my truck shell wiv a few layers of fibre glass,,5 from any diy store,yes it adds weight but after a good year on after doing this to my rappy i havnt had any cracks or breaks it really is worth doing,,,now my shell was already painted so had no problems wen coating in f-glass,if uv painted ur shell urself it might affect ur paint job so id test 1st on a old shell or somewer no1 will see if did **** up,,but i think it will be fine on all shells home paint jobs or factory,,,trust mines rolled n crashed  more times than id of liked but shell wiv a 5mm layer all underneath does the trick,,,,,try it............nice1 nige

best way i found to clean rc trucks. Get a bottle of simple green. Spray truck down, scrub any real nasty sports, then simply spray with a air nozzle. unlike carb cleaners and nitro wash it leaves a nice clean shine, not dulled out plastics and faded aluminum.

Heres a tip for ya's. Always charge and check your batteries.lol. A good tip for temp water proofing Find all your holes where electronics are, and put a dab of silicone caulking in them as far as the seams go for the covers and connectors they make a silicone spray. At any auto parts store. Great Stuff I use it on my 4x4 trucks as well. Cleaning you could find a stiff paint brush, or like me a baby bottle brush and some wd-40. I wouldn't trust Wd-40 as a water proofing substitute. Maybe a bearing grease but not the thin oil
