Default Nitro Newbie

Hello all,
I am the happy owner of a new RS4 3Evo+. This is the first nitro RC I have owned(I am 38 now). I have messed with the Radio Shack RC toys before but never anything like this. I finally got to put my first 4 tanks of fuel through it and will begin tuning it as soon as it dries up outside.
Why didn't you guys tell me it was this much fun!!!?? I had a blast. I even had fun cleaning the car and checking for loose screws.
Seriously, I would like to thank the posters in this forum for all of their advise that helped me pick this car. I am sure I will have many questions for this forum in the upcoming weeks.

Another happy customer

Seriously though, I would suggest breaking the engine in with another 6 tanks before you began to tune engine. This will insure that the Piston and Piston sleeve have had a good change to make a good fit. This will also make your tunning of the engine much more consistant.

While you are waiting for the weather to clear up read these articles:

The Break-in Bible and The Tunning Bible

Happy crashing...err...I mean, happy racing

It's refreshing to see someone excited about RC's again

I would also suggest for you to break that motor in a little longer. Have fun w/it and enter some local races..you'll really have some fun then
