OK So im new to the world of Nitro cars. ABout 10 years ago i used to run a couple of Tamiya Electric cars - but aint done that for ages now.
My girlfriend bought me as a surprise for my birthday, a nitro Smartech Winner 3 (speedy tiger) offroad buggy.
Now before people slate it for whatever reason - please dont. Its my first Nitro car, and it was a good surprise and it runs really well. Im pleased with it and hey, my gf didnt know any better.
Anyway, i have a couple of questions about it :-
I have managed to get the thing going with my glow plug starter etc and race the thing around - goes like a bat out of hell and is great fun (will certainly do me till i get more into it and upgrade). However, i think im being stupid but how the hell do i stop the engine. The only way i figured out how to is to screw shut the little screw on the engine............then after a few seconds it dies. Is there a proper way?
Also, i managed to snap one of the front suspension arms, which is fine cos i have another one on order - but the place im ordering it form is shutting down and i cant find any more plaes that sell the parts for it..........especially in the uk. Does anyone know where i can get spare parts for it - or can bits like the front suspension be converted to a more generic or common make?
I know this is a noob question and a long winded one - but any help would be appreciated.
