Default starting car after winter


i'm not into nitro cars, i race electric cars (tc3).

last summer i bought a SMARTECH nitro car for cheap and after some problems in the beginning, it was OK for parking lots.

now that spring's here i wanna go have some fun with it.
the problem is that i don't have any type of oil or anything, just air filter oil.

so i don't know how to start it? should i use some WD-40, just in the beginning?(i just wanna see that it still actually works and i'm not gonna drive it right now, just wanna see that the motor turns over) or what?

any help would be appreciated.


well if it still works i will probably sell it for cheap and buy a NTC3...but gotta find a place to race it first
