Congrats on the new rig. allumina is right though if you want to meet people and get some good tips. Just show up at your local track. Start your buggy get it on the track let everyone see how horrible you are. There will be plenty of advice coming your way. One thing about this hobby guys really are interested in seeing you do well to a point. Now no ones gonna give you there inner most secrets but they will definately. Help you get started in the right direction. Don't be afraid to go to the track everyone had a 1st day at the track.

Good Luck

Ya.... we will get you going at Revs! Thats a good place to learn, its easy on tires and cars. The layout right now is not very damaging but still fun! Look for the guys in the UndergroundRC t-shirts, they will always help you with tools and advice at Revs.
