Hi elven wizard

What fantastic cars you have.  I am a rc newbie and I have got a XTR-3e, which is brand new.  Do you have any tips or recommendations on what to buy for the car etc.

Thanks, StarGazzy

Always maintain the XTR-3e. Filter always clean with air filter oil, after run oil and always fresh batteries in the transmitter and receiver. Know your XTR-3e's limit's ! If you want, change the rear tire's to suit the traction for the terrain your in. It is a extremely fun car. Have fun. Good luck ! Smile

Hi Tan 786 I don't send anything anymore to the South Africa part of the world. I have had to many shipping problems with the item never arriving at it's destination. Check forums, online market places, or Schumacher itself.

Hi Dean at the moment I am out of town on the road looking for barnyard XTR's. I have a ton of the XTR3'e  manual's. I can give you the reading's of the Thunder Tiger engines off of my head, but I like to give you the exact reading's from the manual. The settings can be a little different between engines even if there the same depending on the condition of your Thunder Tiger engine.

Only place I can find that still stocks the alloy front wishbones (and a BIT pricey!).  I can't find the rears anywhere online.  You'll have to keep your eyes peeled for eBay and places like that as per Elven Wizard's advice...

iv come into a problem with my car and I'm not sure what's wrong with it:( everytime I try to prime it either blowing the exhaust line and putting my finger over the end exhaust, the fuel just doesn't want to go through to pipe it's so hard to get it in. so I put a drop of fuel into the carb and it's starts for 5 seconds and cuts.. this is because fuel can't travel up the line. if I blow through the pipe and open the throttle it goes in fine! iv read about it being blocked pipe or blocked carb or lack of pressure in my fuel tank? any help is appreciated a lot!
