Default longtime battery guy getting into nitro for the first time what do i need?

I am looking at the monster GT or waiting and hoping to get the LST it has an amazing amount of hop ups stock for hundred more then the GT. Ok what should i get fuel wise? Glow plug brands you guys recommend? And another question i have is what do i do to break the truck in? I have been into rc for 16 years so i am no rookie. But i am a newb to nitro.lol Another question who is gonna be selling the LST the cheapest on the net when it hits? I would appreciate any help on this thanks a ton.

The included manual will have the recommended fuel and glow plug listed in it. You can then make your own decision whether to use those exact items or a comparible brand. The manual will also guide you through the recommended break-in procedure.

Thanks for the info but i am gonna wait till the LST hits and weigh the options i want the best for the money. I love associated but i am reading alot of gripes about them and i dont want to have this break and be limited to engine size the way i keep reading on many forums. peace and thanks for the info
