Hey there. I'm looking to get some advice on how to get this T-Maxx up and running. I used to run electric RC cars when I was a teenager but it's been a good 10+ years. I've always wanted a nitro truck and an old friend offered me his when he moved out of state. I gave him $50 so I'm hoping I didn't waste it lol.
I know almost nothing about it so I'm wondering where to start. I know that it's been sitting in a garage and not been run in about 4 or 5 years. I know it ran when put away but haven't even tried to start it yet for fear of breaking something. And I know it's filthy dirty lol.
So what do I do first? What sorts of things do I need to check? Will it need stuff replaced just from sitting like the shocks or even the engine?
Also, I've heard that nitro is a pain maintenance wise. Is this true? Should I be looking to convert this to an E-Maxx if I don't want to worry about it after it's up and running?
I really appreciate any help I can get. I'll post up a couple pics of it when I get home. I'm excited to get any sort of RC vehicle up and running for the first time in a long time!
