If this is your first nitro, I would reccommend buying the nitro basics book produced by RC Car Action. A little bit of education of nitro is probably the best hop-up you can buy if you're just starting into nitro. Learn how to tune your engine, read glow plugs, temperature variences, lean and richen out needles, piston, sleeve, and crank configurations, etc............the list goes on and on. Goodluck

is there a big difference in a rear exhaust and side exhaust with pull start? does it affect performance of the car?
