Default New to Nitro questions

I just got my Revo 3.3 yesterday. I watched the Dvd and read the manual was wondering if there is anything else I should know/do before I go out and break it in. Can you break in on grass or am I going to have to find a place I can do it. Also what kind of air filter oil should I get and where to get it. Thanks!

Not too sure if grass would be a problem for brake in but as far as the filter oil I use NO TOIL cleaner and oil from the local cyclegear or dirt bike shop. Works great and I have had no problems with it.

Yes that is what I use. But you dont need the grease. might cost less if you bought the cleaner and oil separatly

I would heat the engine up with a heat gun or hair dryer before starting it.

grass is horrible for beakin, too hard to drive through. Find a baseball diamond or a parking lot.

Have you ever tried to run as fast as you can through a tall cornfield. Rc in grass is like that.

+1 on the heatgun.
