Old RELIC!!!!!!!

I will start by saying Hi my names Adam, I am new to most of this R/C business,
And the forum.

Yesterday while having a couple beer in my buddy's garage we started playing around with an old( and I mean OLD) nitro buggy he had on his shelf.

We fired it up and it ran great. Long story short he sent it home with me.

So now I have a Kyosho Sandmaster ( I am assuming it's the MK2) anyhow it's a cool little buggy but it needs some work. nothing major though just some new rims and tires and I need to pick up a few things for it. Like Nitro obviously and some new glow plugs and an igniter. one thing i did notice though is that the rear wheels seem to wobble a little inside the rear hub, which I am hopeing is just a bearing issue. So I might be busy figuring some stuff out with that.
Anyhow it's my first nitro car. And If anyone has any decent pointers for getting started with this buggy I'd greatly appreciate it.
Oh it came with an old Airtronics controller aswell.

Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of a decent shop while I'm at it. I live in Aurora. I don't know if there are any in Newmarket or not, and all the ones I used to know about in Richmond Hill are gone now.

Thanks alot and sorry about the novel.
(and Yes I know I won't be able to find parts to easy for it, but I can make a lot of them myself If I have something to go by.)

There is a shop in Newmarket, called Zoom Room, in the plaza on the south west side of bayview and Mulock.
I personally recommend going the distance to pinnacle hobby in Markham though, @ 48& 16th. but for ease of access, Zoom Room is excellent.

What you have there is actually a bit of a collectible for some. If you REALLY want to fix it and actually run it, parts will be very difficult to come by.
You might have a better experience with the hobby if you sell it on ebay or by other means as a collectable and use the funds to purchase a good quality used kit.
Theres a guy on here named Ron Prinzen who's right into the vintage stuff. I'm sure he can help you out for ideas for parts if thats the way you want to go. Also I think Jordan Krupp and maybe David McLean might be able to help you out as well.

If you looking for parts, ebay is your best bet. With the these types of older cars getting parts is rather difficult. It all depends on how much you want to use it and what you want to get out if it

Really I only intend to play around with it a little. nothing too serious though. If I decide to step it up a bit I will definatly upgrade, likely to a truck or rock crawler.
Thanks for the pointers guys.
