Questions?? new losi 8ight rtr owner...couple questions

unboxed it tonight and i have soome starter questions...
it came with two black plastic multi tools. one is the plug for the exhaust to kill the engine. the other end adjusts the tie rods. it has a slot in the center that i cant figure out what its for. the other multi tool has what looks to be a 17 mm hex head in the middle, a slot on one end and a socket on the other. i cant figure out what the hex in the middle is for and the slot on the end. the starter box also came with a piece of black plastic. cant figure it out either. i couldnt find anything about it in the manual. i dont see what i need it for, but im sure i do or they wouldnt have included it.
i also read about setting the end points on the servo travel(so i dont fry the crappy rtr servos). how do you know where it needs to be set. just set it so that it doesnt bottom out and try to keep pushing causing stress on the servo gears? do you adjust them on the transmitter or on the kit or both??

thanks.

The slot is to hold the top of the shock cap when you rebuild them, the oter multi tool is to hold the bottom of the shock body, setting end points on stearing you need to set it to were the steering stops just before it bottoms out, on throttle set it to were at wide open you can still pull it by hand approx 1 to 2 mm to allow for chassis flex.

thanks for the reply. on the multi tool that holds the bottom of the shock...what do you use the open end for?? do you have any idea about the starter box? maybe an adapter to use to start the 8ight-t?
