Dont start with an expensive high dollar racing engine! Start out with a good reliable sport engine like the Hyper .21, Dynamite, Sportworks, etc. learning engine tuning is key to top performance, and engine longevity, and until you learn what you are doing, you will prematurely kill any engine, so start with a cheepy. $100-$150, then upgrade to a race engine, once you learn how to tune, and only if you are going to race. Dont waste your money on $300-$400 engines if you are only going to bash, it's just a waste, and not needed.

Its very important that you learn how clutches work. make sure you learn the difference between Composite clutch shoes and Aluminum, and what the different clutch springs do, how quickly they engage, how much bite they have, what different weight clutch shoes will do. make sure your clutch is not engaging at idle. Scuff up the inside of clutch bells to help with sliping clutch shoes. search the threads there is a ton of info on clutches.

Try not to crash. You'll win any novice or sportsman race if you do the single-single-single instead of trying to make the big triple but failing every lap

Check over your vehicles every run, loose screws, worn out parts, etc., because nobody wants to DNF.
