Yes I tried priming. Basically I tried everything you can find on Youtube with a similar model. The Acme NB16.

I got stuff from Hobbyking before. This is the first time I run into trouble..

Did you try the suggested needle settings for that car, they're the same car with a different box.

Do you have any experience with other nitro engines? Do you know for sure fuel is getting to the cylinder? Keep priming it until it's flooded to make sure it's actually getting fuel. You should be able to hear it sizzle off the glow plug if it's getting fuel into the cylinder.

Have you tried adjusting the idle (or have a friend hold the throttle open slightly) to see if that will get it firing?

I managed to find people nearby to help me out. When the weather gets better I will meet them and I think I will get the car sorted than. Still not sure what I'm doing wrong but I will find out soon.
