    Pretty much all the popular brands offer a kit. Associated, HPI, Kyosho, Mugen, Ofna, etc... Just depends on what you want. Go to towerhobbies.com and look a nitro kits to get an idea.

    To me, it sounds like it is idling a little on the low side? Maybe adjust the air gap a little bigger with the idle stop screw. I think all nitro's call for a 1mm gap but sometimes just a wee bit...
