    Thanks to Tmaxxfreak,
    Anything else beside all that????

    Need to know to add to my order for my first Nitro ....T-MAXX...

    RPM_ A-arm.... just incase.... lot of ppl got this broke at first attemp...
    How about RPM's skids ( 3 parts)...
    People go for RPM not just because the replacement policies or because it is good?
    hump pack or receiver battery: venom is good I have read... Do I realy need it?

    Thanks

    I swear by the rpm skids very strong.The hump back makes running alot longer instead of the batteries dieing. Plus they make the servos work faster (good thing). The failsafe will help in case of radio interferance (sp). Or dead battey I love when my battrey dies and the failsafe kicks on.

    Tmaxx freak,
    do you have the hump pack install ? do you have to modify the stock battery for the receiver, because the venom have 5 batteries nstead 4 ( that's why it is hump )...
    Thanks

    Yes I have the hump back installed. The venom is the fail safe not the hump back. The hump back fits right in my battery box. What I did was buy a new switch so I can charge the battery without removing.The switch has a extra plug for the charger. I also bought a extension wire so the wire for the battery reaches the reciever. I hope this helps if not let me know..

    Du-Bro makes a great fuel filter. They also have colors. Silver, blue, purple and red. As far as motor savers, I think they all serve the same purpose. It just a matter of personal choice. I see nothing wrong with the stock one. IMO. BTW, welcome to the world of nitro. Hope you many years of happy racing and bashing. I took so long posting, u posted again. LOL. Yes, they are easy to clean. You just unscrew them and clean the screen. Oh, btw the oring goes to the tank side of the hose. You will know what i mean when u get one.

    Your list looks good. Throw in some zip ties and threadloc. Nothing wrong with having a tube of glue around. And one gallon of fuel is what you want. One quart is goin to make you mad. I had to wait two days after i broke in my car to get more fuel. Because i only brought one quart, when i purchase my r/c. LOL. One other thing, it might want to look into. Waterproofing your servos. A can of plastic dip from your local hardware store, cost about 5 dollars.

    Thank you 0260MPH,

    But you have not fill in those I leave blank..... manufacturing....



    --- The items for later like venom and bat , tower hobbies don't carry them i have to pick up at LHS near, lucky they carry them if noti have to order from Venom....
    ---- Don't plan to run under water yet so plasti-dip is not need at the mean time... ( later tho for cost protection).... lol
    --- No need for those air an fuel filter right away while break in... could be a add on...
    --- I have the tie wrap... plenty....
    --- Having glue is not a problem but I afraid when we need it all dried... that is the problem... lol...

    How do you get all these out for racing??? any container that can store them all... I want just take the box, container and go... someone suggesion 19" tool box, but the width of the truck is much gigger don't you think evethought without the tires????

    Thanks

    I have a basic 2 shelf Fishing Tackle Box with all my parts in. Easy and well organized. I would put the fuel filter a little higher on my list if it was me. 1 peice of sand or something gets into your motor and its ALL OVER MY FRIEND! Just my 2 cents.

    Good point T-maxx1975,
    I will order the fuel filter with the truck, it is not included withthe kit then.... and make sure i install that before break-in... do i need extra fuel line tube then. since the fuel filter will be place between fuel tank and the engine.... stock come with only one piece???

    thanks

    I would move the Venom Fail Safe to the buy now list and the air filter to the later list. You will want to break the T-Maxx in with the stock air cleaner anyway. Get a gallon of fuel to start with and no, CA glue is not included in the kit.

    You might also consider waiting on the RPM skid plate covers until after you have broken in the max. You might change your mind to somthing else. Especially if you don't get the failsafe and get a run-away and smash an A-Arm, or somthing else. For glow plugs, McCoy MC-59's work great.

    Trinity makes a great carry bag.

    See Misbehavin's site for a great idea on a tool/parts box.

    Oh yea, move the WD40 up to the top. You will need it for the after run procedure. You will need it the first time you run the engine - not for cleaning the outside but protecting the engine internals from corrosion.

    EXTRA FUEL TUBING IS ALWAYS GOOD TO HAVE! You never know when a little pin hole will get in your line and ruin your whole day. Its Cheap and it comes in 3 foot peices I think. Lots of colors also!

    Look on eBay for the roll cages. Someone makes a nice one for about $40 and puts them up regularly. It also has a lifetime warranty against breakage. It' breaks, you pay to ship back, they pay to ship you a new one or your fixed one. I believe it's small diameter, tig welded steel tubing. Looks nice, I may get it once I start working again this summer.

    That's MadMaxx2.5 - and NO, Tower Hobbies does not have the McCoy MC 59's cheaper. The price at Tower is $4.19 for one glow plug while the link I gave you for RCBoyz is $7.49 for two plugs. Also, Tower does not have them in stock.

    Thanks Madmaxx2.5, this time hope that i get your name right, sorry....
    your're right did not look close the tower hobbies don't have it....
    then I guess I have to make to the LHS then, just for other stuffs, fuel ( 20%), venom failsafe, etc...

    It getting close to my limit expense ( 500.00)

    won't take long to go over it.....

    Just get the final list done, going to make a call to order....

    One more thing if you could help.. about the fuel line tubing, silicone, don't know what size..... can someone tell me the size???? 3' tubing?

    Roll cage ... Hmm... I have to wait then after the break in.... I will make sure not to aggressive during this time.... just running in the empty parking lot first.... and not cut the cornner too fast and zip tie down the shocks...





    Thanks

    Your LHS should have fuel tubing. From the description at Tower, its ID is 2mm.
