What Red Bullie said is really all you need. The bike even comes with it's own little fuel bottle and fuel line connector! Get a few of those OS plugs to have spares. The rx pack is a 5 cell 1400mAh Rx hump pack. A four cell pack won't fit. You will probably have to bend the battery holder tray down some to keep the swingarm from hitting the top of the hump pack (I did). Also get a pack of small zip-ties to secure your battery, wires and such. You can't run r/c bikes without zip-ties!

Have fun and don't get too frustrated if it's not easy getting it handling like you want at first. There is plenty of help here if you need it.

do you mean something like this http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=395580

its an air or fuel line that is used in a industrial machine, kind off hard plastic tubbing! you might buy some place near you . look at this to http://www.rc-motorradshop.de/produk...ilder/?RGX4142

inside off the tubbing is a steel rod!

The Italian guys use a very tightly wound spring over the crash bars. I imagine they last forever. But I'd also think they were heavy.

yep. They are plastic, The mounts act as a spacer on the axle, but you can replace them with washers.

I ran the nitro duc for the first time today. it was great. I ran my r1(electric) after, two completely different animals. the new front wheel and flat tire on the duc makes all the difference. Hard to start at first. get a good drill or starter. then it is fun city

right there.

I have one to put on the TT nitro too. There's plenty of places to put one of the mini-fail safes on the frame under the seat.
