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.

Sounds like the clutch shoes/springs are toast. Try to move the clutch bell with your fingers without the flywheel turning. If not, sounds like the clutch is poo!

My Savage 25 was like that. I leaned out the idle screw until it started and then adjusted from there. Make sure you have the 1mm gap on the idle stop too.
