First off, what car do you have? ALL nitro cars use nitro hobby fuel available from hobby shops. Regular petrol is only used in large scale cars and is used with a mix of 2-stroke oil. DO NOT ever put regular petrol in a nitro vehicle.

you will need to hit up your hobby shop to buy your nitro fuel. depending on the engine size in your car will determine what percentage of nitro mix you need. also dont buy fuel for airplanes or boats as they are slightly different and will work but its not the best for your motor. if you have a .12 to .18 motor you'll look to 20% nitro and engines from that size up usually use 30% but you can use 20%.

do you know how big the motor is? .12? .18? .21? if so, you can find out what fuel you need here on the web.

try finding a thread on the heat cycle method of break-in. that will probably get ya going.

First thing you may want to do is go back and edit the language on your post. They try to keep the language, at least, kind of family friendly on here.

That car is a nitro car and I would first look in the manual since it looks like it came ready to run with that motor in it. I would bet that the manual has a recomended nitro fuel listed in it. If not check with your local hobby shop, but don't be too suprised if they are not very helpfull since you appear to have bought it on line instead of buying one from them. The manual problably also recomends a break in procedure that you should follow.
