Forums, forums and forums. Forums are the best place to learn new things.

Badger people at your local track, ask at your local hobby store & there are even some excellent R/C books that will teach you everything from the engine to hop ups. Try Amazon, they have some good books on nitro cars. And yes, forums, just post any questions you might have, there are loads of people on here that definately know there stuff.

when i first started i knew nothing about "tuning",i went to the track and started racing i learned more about tuning and diagnosing a nitro motor at the track than anywhere else.

ask as many questions as possible,without being annoying but the most important is to watch THEN learn and again dont be afraid to ask if your stuck

In your case, you need to join a local club that races MT's. That way you'll get 'hand's on' experience of racecraft and wrenching. Someone at the club will be willing to help you learn.

Forums are great also, but I appreciate that not everyone finds reading technical issues on these threads easy to understand. But you should still learn to use the forums to the best of your ability. They're a great source of tech info, up to the minute news and specialist reviews.

Reading tech stuff alone is no substitute for actual experience - remember that the next time you find it difficult to read a technical article! What you'll find is that as your mechanical skills improve, so too will your communication skills.
