With a starter box, this process is made simpler by eliminating the requirement to perform a pull start. It provides the boost required by the engine to break in and the car gets going in hardly any time.
Without fuel of course, the possibility of you going anywhere with the car is zero. The owner’s manual will recommend a specially formulated fuel kind for you, which varies from car to car.
And if you’re doing the refueling job yourself, you will probably require a fuel filler bottle. You can choose from number of sizes, with angled, long tips that prevent spills.
Additionally, rags and a fuel cleaner will prove handy in case of spills and drips.
3. Glow plugs:
Keep spare glow plugs in case your glow plug fails and spoils the fun. They can be easily changed along the course. The best idea would be to stash your box with a small kit which includes glow plug igniter, spare glow plugs, a charger and a glow plug wrench.
4. RC tools:
RC tools are specialized tools that keep the vehicle going. A magnetic balancer, temperature gauge, gear puller, glow plug wrench and tool pouch are standard tools included in an RC tool kit.
5. Air Filter Oil:
It is mandatory to replace the air filter at regular intervals. It is convenient if you carry a special air filter oil along with you which can improve the air filters function and increase the engines life.
