The 5308 Revo comes with a 2 stage air filter, it's just a good as the motor saver.

To oil the air filter, after every hour of use, take the filter off and wash it in some dish detergent, dry it, and apply some air filter oil on it (cover it good) and squeeze the filter in your fingers and massage the oil in the filter.

This is a glow plug..

The little blue wire we're talking about hooks onto that, but the blue wire sucks, and will break. The glow ignitor is used just like the wire. You hook the glow ignitor onto the glow plug, and use the EZ Start to start it, once it's started just take off the ignitor.

The stock radio system is fine just bashing around the yard. You will end up getting a nicer radio system if you run with friends though, I've had my revo for 6 months, and I just bought a new radio..it happens.

The revo will come with a DVD and instructions. Be sure to read ALL of the manual, even the parts you think you don't need to know. And watch the DVD a few times to get the hang of breaking the motor in, and tuning.
