Nitro RCs are an awesome piece of machinery. Just like a real car though they also require regular maintenance. After running your RC for a while you have to perform after-run maintenance. Part of that after-run maintenance includes lubricating the pistons and all the internal parts. Nitro
fuel contains alcohol which, after a good run, tends to dry out internal parts within the RC engine. After-burn oil is the lubricant used to counteract this drying out. You'll only use a few drops at a time so a small bottle of after-burn oil will last quite awhile. You can purchase after-burn oil at any RC hobby shop.
To start the after-run maintenance you will need:
- paper towels or shop towels
- needlenose pliers
- glow plug wrench
- after-burn oil
