Posts Tagged ‘How to save locked rc buggy engine’ Here’s a demo of the additional step to unlocking your engine after months or years of non-use…(like in the case of my Thunder Tiger Pro 21BXR installed on my Kyosho Inferno DX). I couldn’t find any other videos on this topic.

You’ll need RC Glow Fuel. I use Trinity.

Dissolves waste products, i.e. engine gunk, like a charm…

Advertisements Before you discard your engine, watch this! Hey all! As I told before, I recently went out to get my HPI Savage X 4.6 RTR when my Kyosho Inferno DX’s 10-year-old engine got locked up and jammed from un-use. Contrary to what the local distributor said, this engine condition, caused by hardened castor oil or castor varnish, is EASILY REVERSIBLE! While I found several forum posts on how to save locked airplane engines, I didn’t manage to find a self-help video on this topic, so I decided that I’d best share my solution to all RC Car Hobbyists out there.

This works for all… plane engines, heli engines, buggy engines.

Things you need:

– WD40

– A disposable container

– Boiling Hot Water

– (Optional but recommended) RC Glow Fuel
