best source for wheels/tires? im not experienced with mounting yet so i'll need premounted..
Like spooky says use nimh for now , then if you upgrade to lipo go with HV servo's. A lot of GT racers use www.igthobbies.com for or parts and supplies. Go with premounted for your new ride.

Manual says run 25% nitro.. I can only get 20.. Will 20% be ok? Or could it damage the engine?
