    i know i am going to get angry responses for saying this. but what about getting something like a red cat they have nitro buggies that run about 120$ and i would pick up one of those just to know if you really are giong to be into nitro... learn the basics on it to and then when ur ready move up to the savage or the tmax or revo

    ^^^^ thats a good idea if your just getting into the nitro style and can replace it soon

    but if you want something that will last you then get a traxxas (nitro sport, nitro rustler, nitro stampede...) or an hpi (im not too familiar w/ their models but the nitro firestorm or the mt2 could work) those brands have good customer support and LOADS of aftermarket support

    As a first nitro don't set a low budget. Your money buys quality. For a beginner the best car would be a losi 8ight-t rtr and change servos. That it the best option for a nitro and real low budget.

    Well, I already got a nitro sport and I can't really get a second first nitro. Btw I have flooded my engine twice already and the ex start is a pain in the neck, the gears inside tue starter are not secure so when I attach it to the engine they move and end up not turning he engine over

    I have a tmaxx 3.3, they are fun and wild machines, and are great for bashing and playing around. I suggest, if your bying new, keep the easy start becuse it will cone in handy, but, if turmanals beake or u seam to start haveing problems, then you sould think about investing in a pull start, and a glow driver, that way you wont have to rely on the battery to start the car, yet if it dosent start within a cupple of pulls..........well good luck pulling! also, if you want to run loud and get a ton of fumes, use odonal 30%, that stuff burns good and smells great!

    if you get any of the traxxas models i recommend getting a glow ignitor and just rip out the blue wire. the blue wire that heats the glow plug is so frustrating to put on the glow plug and stuff and a glow ignitor is 100000000000000000x easier.

    To avoid fluding prime with ignightor off once u see fuel go in carb put on ignightor. If it fluds take plug out and turn car upside down to get fuel out. Normally if its fluds before strting plug is bad or your tune is to fat.
