This series will contain the following:
  1. Initial start procedure
  2. Fuel - coming soon
  3. Loose bolts - coming soon
  4. Air filter - coming soon
  5. Exhaust - coming soon
  6. Gaskets - coming soon
  7. Kill switch - coming soon
  8. Spark Plug - coming soon
  9. Ignition Coil - coming soon

Part One:  Initial start procedure
  1. Ensure your receiver battery and transmitter batteries are fully charged
  2. Put your Rampage on a block or brick to lift the wheels off of the ground
  3. Prime the engine by pumping the fuel bulb until fuel enters the bulb.  Don't worry, you can't prime the bulb too much.  This ensures fuel is reaching the carb
  4. Turn choke lever to vertical closed position
  5. Pull starter cord until the engine tries to start – you'll hear the engine try to fire. Then stop
  6. Return the choke lever to the horizontal or off position
  7. Pull starter cord again.  The engine should start within the next few pulls

Do not turn the ‘choke on’ again and continue to pull – otherwise you may risk flooding the engine. 

​The above procedure is for a cold engine. Once the engine is warm (or in warm weather) – the choke should be left in the horizontal position (choke off), otherwise you may flood your engine.

For further information on how to start your Rampage, be sure to watch the videos below by OBR and HPI, they covers everything from battery charging, carb tuning, fuel mixture, and correct pull start technique
