I looked for the car and all I could find was a Taiwanese website, that had no info. you will most likely need some nitro fuel, glow plug, oil, and some tools.

since you seem to have very little idea what you bought, return it and get a HPI nitro rs4 3 evo or a HPI sprint 2 electric car. Both will have loads of information, getting help with problems should be easy.

Sometimes you can find starter kits that will get you the majority of the things you need.
The basics are this;
1: glow starter & charger for it.
2: allen drivers (wrenches) from 1.5 up to 3 mm (in .5 increments)
3: fuel. Try to find a 20% (amount of nitro content per gallon) blend. A good brand to choose is Byron's.
4: 4 way wrench. There should be a small wrench that comes with the car, but this will cover a larger range of the bolts that could be on the car. Dont be afraid to buy more than 1, not a bad thing to have extras.

That sums up a solid start and all that should run you around 75-125$.
Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions! Used to work at a hobby shop so it comes easy to me

As your located in Sydney, I would suggest to look up your nearest hobby shop they will have a starter kit that you can get they will know what is needed to get it running on the day I would also suggest to get a spare glow plug as if it blows on the day it stops all the fun.

Bee im in Sydney.
Depending where you are located you can try www.nbhc.com.au if your on the Northern Beaches or if your from Western Sydney try Kelletts Hobbies they are located in Liverpool.

A nitro starter kit and nitro fuel is what you need.
