Default Any help would be great!!

Hi all, I'm a bit new to all this so please be patient!! lol
My brother recently purchased what i assume to be a petrol radio controlled car. We seem to have most things for it but looks like it is lacking some form of battery pack on the car itself?
The only thing I can find on it is that it's a Kyosho with a Subaru imprezza shell. The two pin plug (for the battery?) is red.
Any help gratefully recieved.
Cheers all. Neil

Default Kyosho

I'm assuming the users guide (manual) didn't come with it. Go to Kyoshos web site and download it. It'll give you all the info you'll need to get started. If it's brand new, pay particular attention to engine break-in. Hope you guys have fun!

Hi, thanks for the quick reply! Yeah, was bought secondhand by his girlfriend as a present!Think i may have found what looks like it could do. Just a battery holder that takes 4 AA style batteries. Think it could be right?
Also, how can you tell if it is a Nitro car or just a petrol. Is there much difference?

By your use of the word petrol it leads me to believe you may be 'way
over yonder'. I would call it 'gasoline' and you do NOT want to use that
in a 'glow' engine. That would not be a happy thing.

Nitro engines, most common in Kyosho vehicles I've used
needs a 'glow starter' to apply voltage in the neihborhood of 1.5 volts to
the 'glow plug' on the top of the cylinder head. You need to get a 'glow
fuel' made for cars that has the proper lubricant content.
I use 30% nitro content but that's because we're at increased altitude and
race a lot. If you're not in those conditions 20% car blend is a starting

I try not to use those AA battery holders except for occasional testing. If you do use that it's not a bad idea to run a couple wraps of electrical tape around it to make sure the batteries stay where you want them. Make sure to check the 'polarity' on the wire connectors. Some connectors don't provide 'goof proof' features.
