Default My new Hyper ST (pics)

Just went and bought this...

OS .21 Vspec

Car needs a good clean but got it for a good price

Question : This is my first ever nitro car...throwing myself in at the deep end cos I'm a bit n00b to all of this but I am reading and learning...what will I need to get it going? I've been told I need the following...

1. Nitro fuel - but what % ?
2. Starter box - are they all the same?
3. What charger do I need for the receiver? Have an AA charger for the transmittor
4. Glow plug

Anything else for the shopping list?

Any noob guides which may be useful to read?

Thanks guys

Default Temp gauge

I would get a temp gun to make sure you dont run it lean. A fail safe never hurts either. If its your first nitro learn how to tune the car. That is going to be the most important thing to do. I suggest driving it with someone that knows what they are doing the first couple of times.

so the shopping list so far :

1. AA battery charger (for reciever and transmittor)
2. 12 rechargable AA batteries
3. Glow plug with charger
4. approx 20% nitro?
5. starter box - but which one?

what else to get me going?

not really anyone that i can take advice off around here i'll just have to read as much as i can...have read tutorial about testing if its running lean or rich
