I had taken the radio tray off to show a fellow board member what it looks like. That was a while ago. Still haven't ran it seems like it snows here every week.

You don't need to shut it down to refuel. Just fill it up and keep going. Keep an eye on the engine temp though. It can creep up when you run multiple tanks.

As for extra parts, steering knuckles, front and rear lower arms are a good start.

Keep the temp under 250 degrees for longer engine life. Some people run 280 to 300 and claim decient engine life. The older nickle plated FE's would die pretty quickly if you ran them too hot. The newer crome plates sleeves should be much more resistant to premature wear when overheated.

Something else to consider:
Nitro is a coolant so more Nitro in the fuel would in theory keep the motor cooler, but Nitro is also corrosive so more Nitro would destroy the motor quicker.
Here in the UK our 200mm Nitro classes are restricted to 16% (235mm and 1/8th run on 25%) and running on 16% it is recommended you do not run anything over 220F (some even believe that you should stay below 195).
