What did you do on your ezstart that is wrong with it? Did you fix it correctly?
Did you try setting your needles back to factory settings, or did you just play around with them?
How much experience do you have with these vehicles. Because most likely, this is a user error.

I'm sure deep down you know Traxxas doesn't suck, and you were just venting. It's good to vent sometimes! Venting just has to be done the right way.
Sometimes it's good just to walk away from the thing for a day and come back at it with a fresh outlook and clear thoughts.
Go back to the drawing board. Set those needles back to factory settings. Set your idle gap. Put a fresh glow plug in. Make sure your batteries are fully charged. Prime - but don't over-prime. Etc. etc.
Start from square one and stick to it. When adjusting your needles make 'one-hour' incremental changes at a time only. Give the engine some time to settle out after you make adjustments. A common pitfall is to turn needles too far, too fast, too often.
Above all else - don't lose the enjoyment of the hobby. Ask for help anytime your stuck. Best of luck!

i bought my rustler back in 1999 and it still runs good. the motor has been rebuilt a FEW times and it is the same motor that came with it.... well the block and head are the ones that came with it. but i have less trouble out of this car than i have had with any of my others .like my ofna ravager with a mach.26 has to be the most aggravating i have ever seen to tune. nitro engines can be a butthole some times but when u get it all worked out u will have fun all over the place. i've had my car for 10years and i still have as much fun with it as i did the day i bought it new!
