Default Help with new HPI Savage X 4.6

Hello all,

today i just ordered the above truck after a 10 year break from the hobby. Most likely I will eventually get an electric as well, but I like to tinker.

i ordered McCoy MC9 plugs and Blue Thunder 20% Nitro (because that was all the website had and I wanted to take advantage of free shipping)

for some reason, I feel I goofed up in the plug and nitro choice. Can I get some advice please as I know that starting and breaking in the Savage can be a real b@#ch

thanks!

20% is pretty standard for nitro fuel, but those plugs are made for 25% fuel and up on cold engines. May idle a bit low and be a bit finnicky to start. I'd stick with what plug the Savage comes with. Welcome back to the hobby though!
