I hate to keep maken threads, but its almost done, i promise.
Alright i start my firestorm, and for like 3 sec. runs, then shuts off, sometimes if i keep the ignitor in, it stays going, as soon as i pull if out, its off.

Is it to lean or to rich?

Too rich. Lean the LSN after it gets a chance to warm up with the igniter on. If it quits again when you pull the heater, lean it a little more. Just do it in small increments of 1/16 of a turn, and give it a few short blips on the throttle till it settles in.

That's what we're here for. We've learned through time and experience. Lots of hobby shop guys are clueless because they only ring them up. They don't build or drive them.

EDIT:
lean it a little more, till it starts to behave. Don't give it it much throttle, just little blips.

You haven't got it right.....you need to lean the LSN for the idle problem.
Get your eraser and start all over. :D

Stop somewhere on your way home and pick up a bottle of 'White Out'.
Check back in tomorrow and let us know how it goes.

Yes, they're hard to reach on some engines, but normally, once they're set right, any future adjustments are only to the HSN. I use a long thin blade screwdriver to reach them.

not sure about leaning it out, but i do know, a just charged Ignitor will start better then a half charged one! also make sure the cars in neutral on the controller.

Okay, what kinda car do you have? I know my old maxx didnt,
But on the HPI firestorm it has on the controller a switch, top is N = neutral, [ I think.. ] and bottom is R [ lol not sure? ] and when i put it on N, it starts easyier, and to drive it, i have to give it BRAKE, so then when i turn it to R its regular, but harder to start? Get what I'm saying? its kinda cunfusing?
