So I'm new to the forums and new to nitro cars. I have previous experiance with some electric cars in the past when I was younger. started out with a Grasshopper. I ened up crashing and wrecking that when I put a 540 motor in it which made it a lot quicker then the stock 380. So I ended up breaking it up from turning when it was going so fast and flipping it a million times lol. After that I bought a Super Blankfoot truck. That was ok but just to slow, also had a Traxxas Hawk. Anyways enough about that.
I'm pretty excited I just bought a Jato 3.3, received it from UPS today. Stopped up at the LHS and bought some juice, fuel bottle, battery, and charger. Got everything charged up and ready to go for tomorrow. I have to admit I'm a little nervous with this being my first gas powered car. One thing I was going to pick up and forgot was a failsafe, I think that's what they are called.I just wont drive to far away from myself tomorrow. Gonna drop the ol lady off at work and hit the parking lot next door to break in the motor. I have quickly learned this is going to be an expensive hobby. Maybe not so much now after having everything. So far I think I'm up to around $550 invested.
How long does a tank of gas last? Just curious how much time Im gonna be spending breaking it in and fighting myself to not give it full throttle lol.
