Ok, so I'm a kind of newb when it comes to RC vehicles. But it has been a hobby that has interested me from a young age (used to drive the little tyco's, and then moved up to x-mods, I haven't messed with either for a few years now. My grandpa also used to fly rc planes). I wanted a truck that I could use anywhere whether it be off-road or on-road and that could perform well. So yesterday I bought an ERBE, and I am now waiting for it to ship. In the meanwhile I've been trying to do as much research as I can to make sure I don't mess up my investment. I've already read the addendum, and have been trying to look for some of the other manuals for the rig. I've noticed a few of you saying that you did a little prepping before your first run. Could you enlighten me as to what you did to prep the vehicle?
