Default Lightning STR VX-16 exhaust mani screw missing, can't tune it

Had a lot of trouble setting this thing up for the first time, got it for xmas, sat in the basement till today when i got fuel.

Idle was wayyyy high and i couldn't get it to settle down and sit still, initial fire up it was screaming away, messed with the screws a bunch and prob just got myself in over my head... but I'm now seeing a possible reason... i'm missing a screw/bolt for the exhaust manifold and when i did have it running it made that side of the engine a greasy mess.

I don't think it fell out in just 10 mins of putting down the street, but oh well.

Where can i get them? i've looked at the schematics on RCR site and it shows the manifold and gasket but no hardware screws.

Was stoked to get this thing running today and have some fun, GF got me 2 gallons of fuel yesterday.

I don't know, are they the screws that would secure an exhaust manifold to the engine? This is my first nitro, as if I would know lol.
