Awww come on, you have an instruction manual don't you???? Just start taking it apart from the back of the manual and work forward.

Why pay someone to do something that easy and that you will need to learn how to do anyway. If you intend to keep up this hobby it's great to ask for help, but nothing beats the hands on approach.

Yeah, im not gonna pay them, i'll just go ask for tips, and then do it myself. I just need some people to talk to my DAD so he is convinced that its okay to do it.

Gotta go get sommore 20% fuel anyways this weekend.

a quart doesn't last long (it should at $12.99 a bottle)

Had the car for 10 days

They didn't have Gallons when i went the first time.

Default Washington State?

First off- Glad you having fun getting into the hobby.

2nd-Even better you picked a Jammin

3rd- What part of Washington?SW(Vancouver area?),or NW (Seattle area)?If you are in Sw check out our track(see link on my sig) on the nice days and I will be there and help out any way I can.I am no pro by any means but have been running Jammins for a year or so and worked on them plenty.

4th- Read your manual and learn how to prep your ride.That is part of the fun...at least to me.

5th- Find some dirt for that buggy.....

6th-12.99 a quart?...a gallon is only $20-25ish cheeper in the long run.

Good luck and have fun

NO kidding, Byron's 30% nitro gal's go for $27 here in Texas. Personally I think quarts are a hellava scam, unless you running a micro motor (less than .12 size)...

Not that I'm aware of, but I'm sure if Jammin Jay wanted to put his name on some to make an extra buck, he would have a line out in a few short weeks.

If your looking for a replacement body, The Proline Crowd Pleazer is a nice one, I currently have a Majestic RC one on mine and it is one tough sucker.

Avoid the stock Ofna bodies if your new and on your lid a lot. The stock bodies are very thin and do not last long. The Proline and Majestic are way thicker and will last longer on the buggy.

The motor is a little difficult to tune from what I have heard.
