First off- Glad you having fun getting into the hobby.
2nd-Even better you picked a Jammin
3rd- What part of Washington?SW(Vancouver area?),or NW (Seattle area)?If you are in Sw check out our track(see link on my sig) on the nice days and I will be there and help out any way I can.I am no pro by any means but have been running Jammins for a year or so and worked on them plenty.
4th- Read your manual and learn how to prep your ride.That is part of the fun...at least to me.
5th- Find some dirt for that buggy.....
6th-12.99 a quart?...a gallon is only $20-25ish cheeper in the long run.
Good luck and have fun
