welcome to the club kay_mieted,
in a way, what aizenbelle suggested makes sense. when i first started nitro, i crash course using a prokit. i have to admit,its a bit hard on the pocket and mind bobbling in the beginning. when u reach 1 gallon, u'll be a pro with what u have. its not like we're going to be a beginner forever. just have know where u stand on the track and learn slowly. with guidance by pros on track,u'll learn quick too.
there's a pros and cons in everything, for now just play with what u have. learn how to handle the car,observe how it behave. dont be afraid to tackle the problem on the track, but be sensible. hobby is all about excitement, friendship etc. so enjoy
