    New to this

    Hi everyone, I am new to the world of Nitro RC and getting my first truck on Friday. Any advice to help me along? Like what not to do, what they can handle and all that.

    Which truck are you wanting to get. You would get the best results with more information.

    I can tell you this though, read and re-read the instructions, espicially the break-in procedure. The better you do it, the engine will last longer and willbe more trouble free.

    Hi newby,If you're looking to jump dohnut etc,The T maxx or revo are for you.If you want a do it all truck (if a little slow)the summits for you.As for driving hints,You will break parts,its part of the hobby.Its wierd,but you have to learn how Not to crash,and learn what the truck can do.My trucks got RPM front and back,I beat the cr** out of it,My mates is all alu he's more gentle.There are other sites that are a little more relaxed than this one, just keep looking!lol
