1 4 Scale RC Car
Gas RC - Have I made a good purchase?

I just bought a HSP sonic 1/10 4WD car, and I want to know if I made a good purchase. I am new to Gas RCs and I know nothing about them, but I do know I need glow plugs, and a glow plug warmer, 15% nitro fuel, and I need to break the engine in (2 tanks on idle, 1 tank on 1/4 throttle, 1 tank on 1/2 throttle, and 1 tank on full throttle) could you give this link a look and tell me that its a good starter car.

Thanks

P.S. How fast should this car run at?

Don't run 15% run atleast 20% to 30 %,it will be faster then electric,mabye 40 to 50mpr depends,15% is to week,get a hot plug after the one that is in it is shot,and get a higher % fuel.Break it in properly,if it's new,always be sure there is a steady stream of blue smoke coming out,not to much or you'll foul the plug.Feel free to mail me if you have any problems,i have several of them,i've been doing this for yrs.
