Default What parts to buy with new RTR Revo?

Hi to all, this is my first post on RCU (sorr for my bad writien english :-) ).

I'm looking into nitro truck's for a month, and I decided to buy traxxas Revo RTR version. This would be my first RC car/truck.
Problem is that I can't buy anything in my country (Croatia) regarding RC cars.
So I have to order from towerhobbies ( or any other on-line store? name for any other good shop that would send good's in Europe). Shipping + taxes would be about 100-150$. And because that, i would like to order with my truck few spare part's so that I do not have to order in a month again, and pay again shiping and taxes.

So finaly my question :-)
What do you think that i need with new RTR revo? Arm's? Other set of whells ( I would drive truck on street too)? Any oil (after run oil?)? Any batteries?
Any comments will be apriciated.

after run oil would be good, the wheels will be fine on street. 8 AA batterys for the controller.

Hm...just thinking, what about glow plugs?! I'm not shure what would be glow plug, but i supose that is the thing that gives spark to fuel? Am I right?

glow plgus,
fuel
spur gears [many diffrent sizes]
clutch bell [ a few sizes]
some bodies w / paint
tires
rims
fuel line
air filters

becuase your shipping is so expensive i would get all the smallest cheep parts as i could get. Your going to want to try out diffrent gewra raios once you get the revo running and the extra air filters, glow plugs and spur gears are basicly a must.
