Default Kyosho Nitro Tracker (Newbie)

Hello all my new friends I just got my first real RC car and i thought i'd start with a Nitro (why make it easy) so i bought a second hand Kyosho Nitro Tracker and it works fine, but i wonder if anyone can share their thoughts and experience on this model. You know like recomended tune ups, part upgrades and usuall problems.. just trying to get an idea of what i'm up agains and what i should focus on...

See the picture regarding what it's equipped with...

Any tips etc are welcome, i've been waiting to get started with this hobby since i was 7 years old

Default Another picture of it

here's a pic with the body mounted, the car is a nitro tracker but it has a megaforce body.

What do you think of this car as a first choice? Is it a bad one to start with maybe?

if it starts easily then leave it at that setting ..then check your temps after doiin 3 laps maybe a 50footer or like i do it in the parkin lot i make 3 laps then check temp to see if its overheating.if its more than 270 youre too lean u need to richen the high speed needle..till you get the desirable temp..usualy id rather run it rich to make my engine life longer..
