Default 1,000 questions of a beginer

My brother gave me his old RS4 Sport recently, its rlly scracthed up and dirty (front shocks have so much dirt they don't work). it is just a little bit slower than an E-MAXX. If anyone has the manual for the RS4 Sport if u could link it on that would help alot (already have 2 washers, from taking apart engine mount, taht i don't know where to put) also any thing you would recomend for a beginer, if you want the cars parts or pictures just ask. It currently doesn't have reverse and i have a tamiya truck with a reversable ESC just don't know if engine is reverse compatible.



Thanks for taking the time to read that.... any replies apreciated.

electric motors are not engines, Nitro and Gas are engines. And as far as I know all motors are reverse compatible or can be ran in either direction. The ESC just switches the positive current to the other side. That is how you know if your motor is wired backwards. Actually some motors have to be run in reverse to move the car forward in certain chassis configurations.
