Questions?? serpent cobra GT RTR advice & set up

just bought the rtr kit. im brand new to 1/8 gt. what spare parts should I collect right off the bat? any factory issues that will prevent me from parking lot racing immediately after break in, bone-stock?

what glow plugs should I run in the .21 nova?

im assuming I will need a better/spare clutch, spare gears (suggestions?)

any suspension parts I should keep on hand for this chassis?

they say hindsight is 20/20.. if you bought the rtr kit, what would you wish you had known from the start?

only reason I ask.. I cant find any major recurring problems (online anyway) just trying to prepare myself. also, one major question, what size/type battery pack should I get for this thing? thanks in advance for any/all help!

Great choice. Give Paolo or Joaquin a call or email at Serpent America they can point you in the right direction as they both race the Cobra.
