Well if it's not obvious, this is my first r/c car. I know a nitro probably isn't the best or friendliest starter, but i got a jato 3.3 for free from a guy at work. He said it was a money pit and he was tired of buying new parts from all the stuff that breaks. (he's not very soft on the freight at work either lol)
anyway, he said if I could fix it back up and enjoy it i could have it. I got it home, and am going through the stuff that needs fixed.
First: its the bottom coil stopper thing. its missing from the passenger side.
second was a bent tie rod that i already replaced from one of the 9 extra he sent.
third he said the glow plug was bad, but has a brand new one in this box of stuff so i guess ill tackle that soon.
fourth is all the dirt from it never being cleaned.
if y'all got any tips on what else needs to be cleaned and checked, i'd greatly appreciate it.
here's a few pics:
yes there is an auxiliary fuel tank plumbed in... not mine.
this is the thing i was asking about. the shock holder on the bottom.
