Hey guys! I just joined the sport last week and decided to with the IAME X30 for more throttle control and speed. I put about two hours on the engine over the past week and have done some general maintenance (chain, cleaning, pulling on things, etc).
I was not misinformed when it came to how much upkeep these engines require and I will make sure to set aside time to keep it running smooth. My only concern, as a beginner, is that if something needs some work, I may not notice.
I’m just looking for some feedback on things to look for on a regular basis that I may not realize otherwise. Like I said, my main concern is the engine, but I’m also looking for things on the chassis, exhaust, wheels, etc. I’ve read the owners manual and have a general idea of when to do things, but there’s only so much a book can tell you. I find the best way to learn is talking to guys with experience.
What are some things you guys check and maintain frequently rather it’s every run, every five hours, ten hours, or even once a season?
