    Posted: 20 November 2004 at 4:14pm

 I'm new to nitro!

 I ran my XTR for the first time only using 1 tank to test her out She's second hand.

While reading through the manule it mentioned using after run after each run, will i damage my nitro by not using it. Its going to be away untill xmas ( when i'm offically alowed to use her ) Should i run after run through it or will it b ok?

Also anyone suggest a good shuie parts retailer, and advise on hopups. Cheers guys.

Get a life cossie surely calling it HIM would be gay! and what does it matter to you.

I use after run oil it displaces any moisture and is always a good idea IMO, if you are not going to use your car for a while.

Besides £2.50 to give your motor a little TLC aint going to break the bank and the extra lube is bound to help her get started from cold.

yeah, after run oil can't do anything besides help your car so why not spend a couple of bucks to make sure the next time u use your car it will work fine.

i have only just started to use after run oil. is does displace the moisture built up, nitro fuel is hygroscopic(absorbs moisture) and any sat in the crankcase cant do it any good.use especially if the cars are stored in a garage or shed but if stored indoors then only if stored for a long time, that was the advice given to me by the lads at apex models.nemisis

Hi everyone,

   I dont think you need arter run really. I've never used it in the 1.5 years I had the car. I think it is more of an  aeroplane thing really. The Thunder tiger engines are actually used mostly in planes & helecopters. But make sure you don't leave fuel in the tank when you store the car. Despite the synthetic oils, the solvent in the fuel can corrode the engine (£££££expencive£££££)

   Hope this helps!!!!!

        James

Not wishing to drag this on any longer than necessary, and without going in to the ins and outs and ethics, grammatically, it is correct.

Cars, boats, countries etc are all referred to in the feminine in English, so therefore I would say that he's quite justified in referring to an R/C car as "her".

To put my point across regarding "IT or HER" I'm sure everyone will agree that the XTR is one sexy peice of kit ( and many other R/C's ) Therefor if you find ur misses sexy u wouldn't call her IT unless u wanted a smack round the chops. So surely the same aplies to my XTR, I also call my full size car her and shes even got a name!

  Now. I don't know any gay's, but if I did, they would say yes to the lube IM(not gay!)O.......LOL

A big yes to the After run oil, Nitro tends to strip the engine of oil, some good fuels have oil in them, but I would oil up brfore storing it. Just spoke a guy who has just stripped a 3.5cc because the drive shaft had seazed up after storing!
