Thumbs up N-N-Nitro Noob!

HEy guys, I just bought a used nitro car. It came with servos, rx, engine, pipe and rx batt.

I was just curious on what I would need other than what it came with to start racing?

-Thanks in advance

Model, make, motor, pipe, servos, etc?

Most people do this as a hobby or for just fun. Are you referring to racing it professionally or for just a hobby?

Sounds like you're good to go.
You need a glow plug igniter, a starter box (Make sure you get one that has TWO motors in it, ones that have only one SUCK, and fit two cheap LiPo batteries in it to make sure you got juice), a fuel filler bottle and some 25% fuel. Flathead screwdriver to adjust the carb. Some hex drivers. Set of AKA I-beam tyres. Then you're all set, if you have a transmitter...?

I'd go somewhere and try some different setups to see what you like. I'd ask some others what they run to get an idea where to start. There's so much in these cars is not even funny; shock oil, diff oil, camber, caster, toe, spring rates, shock mount, sway bar, clutch spring, clutch material, clutch teeth, spur gear, and a shit load I didn't mention. If it's a used car I'd take the time and check everything and get acquainted with.

Me personally I'd find a team drivers setting or highly recommended setting and go from there.

If you want to race the OS I'd buy another motor to practice with as well so you can save the motor. Also running an underpowered motor helps builds your skills instead of depending on just power.
