yes you must have a glow plug and glow plug ignitor. It all depends on if it is a turbo plug and no-turbo plug. I am guessing it will probably be a non-turbo glow plug. These are about five bucks and the glow ignitor is about the same. You can get one that takes a D cell battery that will work. This is the wrong hobby to get into if you are looking for a cheap mess around project. LOL.

Well I got a traxxas rustler that I bought for $15 running with the stock 20T stinger n it. just n the pass couple weeks spent a few hundred went lipo with brushless and that is my high speed money pit car. I bought this for a project. Mostly just for the axel and gearing for it. If the engin works I may modify it into like a 1/8 or 1/5 truck Build my own chassis and suspension and such....I am a handy guy like that. Just never did research on a nitro engin, never worked on one so I am clueless. It says xtm 75 from searchin I think its xtm .75 but IDK. I am about to pull the engin off and clean it up right after I post pics. Everything will be moved to my other thread so there is not multiple threads of this. Please post any info to this thread here to help me out.
