lol this truly is funny.

You see that black box thing? You plug that into the wall outlet (110V) then you take the other end which is kinda squeeze the circular thing on the ignitors shaft and pull it then stick the pointy thing in and release it lol

Yeah Galaktik if you don't know that, don't feel embarrassed to ask any other Q's. Just in case,

When you get ready to start, triple check this:


Always make sure you have a signal going to the car before you try to start or it can go to wide open throttle and blow the engine. It's a pretty common mistake. Also verify the antenna on your TX is UP and all the electronics are working correctly before starting.

The other thing that gets lost in the excitement is how do you shut it off once it's running?

The preferred method (safest, doesn't cause flooding, can be done with body on, and is immediate using your toe (with shoes on) set the car on your foor so the flywheel hits your toe through the access hole in the bottom of the chassis. This will stop the engine immediately.

Second (it takes a half-second longer and some claim it floods the engine but I've never had problems) using a rag or your show, plug the exhaust completely.

Third, pinch the fuel line right up next to the carb to cut off the fuel flow. (Requires body off and actually takes longest to shut down, up to a second or two, and after you do it enough times the line will leak where you're pinching.)

Have fun, run safe, stay outta the street!
