A huge amount of questions can be solved by people reading the tuning guide, but ive noticed a lot of people asking what to do because as soon as they start the car it starts revving too high etc. might be worth an add.

Also "What fuel?", "Where can i get parts?", "the pull starts jammed (flooded etc)"

Alternative parts shop, Bolton Model Mart, I find them very competitive on price and they give free delivery on every purchase, they have a good stock range when sometimes JE Spares or Modelsport lack something and have quite a few parts that the aforementioned don't aswell!

Thank you for creating this thread, I was beginning to wonder when all the Hyper 7/Best Buggy questions would end :wacko:

We were all new at one time, so it's good to get a chunk of questions all answered in one place :good:

How to stop the engine

There are a series of ways to stop an engine

The most common ways are:-

Pinching the Fuel line

- this starves the engine of fuel shutting it off, This can be good and bad, Bad cause it lacks lubrication, good cause it doesn't leave as much fuel in the engine

Covering the Stinger on the exhaust

- This causes excess pressure, in the whole pressure feed system. It forces nearly all fuel that came of out the engine back (NOT WHATS IN THE EXHAUST), and forces are pressure waves via the pressure pipe into the tank. meaning the engine gets a Huge amount of fuel in the engine which makes it run rich for about 1 second before it shuts off

Blocking the Air intake

- This can be done if u have a soft neck Air filter, By pinching it or by taking the filter off and sticking ur finger in the air intake. If u have to take the filter off u must do it very quickly. However this method simply stops all air entering the engine, this in turn means the fuel isn't sucked in either. It wont rev at all, it will just stop

Stopping the flywheel

- Some people say this is the safest of them all methods, but i dont 100% agree, but anyway this require either a Flywheel stopper, a Shoe, or savage people purchasing the stop button kit. But basically jam the stopper/shoe in between the flywheel and the chassis, if u press on gently, its just going to melt/shread ur shoe/stopper tho

Stopping the flywheel moving stops the engine its quiet simple

The ignitor/Glowplug

hpip7415.jpg

An Ignitor is a device that when placed on a glowplug starts a small circuit of about 1.2v (show to right). This Circuit goes around the coil of the glowplug. Due to been thin, it makes it glow. This is what is needed to start an engine, as when the fuel is compressed against it - it will combust starting the engine

The glowplug is Located in the centre of the Heatsink

Where a glowplug connect on the ignitor, the charger plugs in as well :)

Charge times vary per charger and Battery Capacity

A Glowplug is NOT A SPARKPLUG,

Nitro = Glowplug

Petrol = Spark plug

The Ignitor has a different names

Glowplug Heater

GlowStarter

GlowStick

The stick pack fits better in the battery tray for a hyper. thats all, i use a hump pack, with a big cable tie to secure it so its just how good you position it. the voltages and Mah are the same regardless.

Agreed

I use like 7mm wide Velcro straps

Cause i had to-redress my hump pack it comes out the 2 front batteries instead at the side

This enable me to help secure it in better

I didnt see point in a Stick pack when a hump pack can be fitted in just as good :)

i posted the answer up a couple of posts

http://www.msuk-forum.co.uk/index.php?show...st&p=325280

Both do the same job, one fits better than the other is all.

I use the hump pack which doesnt fit as good as the Stick pack .....

I did read that part, but iwas wondering for the same price really, what is best to get is it worth trying to make a hump stay in place or just get a stick that stays in place easy

They are both 1200Mah and both are 6v so they are identical, the only difference is the layout of the cells.

Both even cost exactly the same so its completely up to you which one you choose but like we've said ... the stick pack will fit much better.

Yeah, im think im defently going for the stick now :) after the poll i made mainly

The part with the After Run Oil, is that the only place it goes, can you use WD40 in the same way and if using WD40 are there any other places you cna put it? Around wheels or something?
