Re: after run oil

I use Marvel Mystery oil. just put a few drops down the venturi and turn the engine over a couple of times to work it in, don't use to much. It is just added to prevent any rust or your engine from seizing. You don't have to add it and there is no real proof it will extend the engine life. The T Maxx is a traxas Monster truck with four wheel drive, it is heavy and has to have a two speed transmission because it weights to much for it's .15 engine.
The Losi offering in the 2wd stadium truck catagory started wiht the GTX, then went to the NXT, and is now the XXXNT.
There were very few changes between the GTX and the NXT, other than a little bit of front suspension geometry. The XXXNT was much different, yet still retains the basic chasis layout of the GTX and some parts are interchangable.

Re: after run oil

I use the after run oil and so far have had no problems starting it after it sits all winter (rc boat). I also use it in my nitro truck (.21 engine). Again, I just think it helps coat everything after you run it and don't plan on running it for a while. I haven't had any problems with it gumming up either.
