Heres the list Dark Corbin, if you need any more help give me a P.M. These are items from Tower Hobbies.


HPI Safety Engine Stop

Dubro Nitro Line 2'

O.S. A5 Glow Plug

Duratrax Gold Racing Glow Plug

Venom Smart Temp Fail Safe

Peak Performance Blitz 1400mah 1/8 Hump RX Pack

O.S. AA Slim Glow Starter

Ofna Flywheel Wrench

Duratrax engine tuning tool

Duratrax Clutch Shoe Tool

Golden Horizons Fuel Filter Blue

Duratrax Kwik Pit 500cc Fuel Bottle

Duratrax Pit Tech Tire Glue

Duratrax Pit Tech Thread Locker

Tamiya 7.2v Connector Set 59181

Trinity shock oil (weight is your choice, I choose 30)

HPI Air Cleaner Foam Element Set (might want to get an extra elbow too incase stock breaks)

Fuel 20% nitro Trinity

The total should be around 170- 200$


Some of these you can get more than one so you have spares and this is absolutely everything you need to get running and have some spare tools/ stuff to work with. Good help is hard to find sometimes and I understand your repost and frustration I feel the same way lots of times. If you are going to be bashing a lot I would suggest to get some shock shafts and shock body parts incase you blow some open. Hits from a 11 pounder can be hard


Good Luck and let me know if you need anything else, Shredder111[>:]

P.S. About the total$ It really depends how many times you get certain items and the amount of fuel. It could possibly be 20 bucks less depending on the stuff you pick.
