Redcat Racing's Lightning STR 1/10 Scale RC nitro car will light up any track like the Fourth of July! Its Vertex VX-16 power is transferred through a centrifugally shifted two-speed transmission to all four wheels for massive acceleration, while a beefy but lightweight aluminum alloy chassis, disc brakes, aluminum capped oil filled shocks provide exceptional crisp handling. The Lightning is truly a nitro-fueled, pavement-pounding terror in the RC world!

Can I upgrade to a bit faster motor? And are the tranny gears metal or plastic
There is an upgraded pipe and manifold that you can get for it to increase performance. You can also get other brand engines to fit so it is upgrade able. The internal diff gears are metal along with the ring and pinion gear, the main spur gear is plastic.
is it a glow plug and if it is dose it come with the starter
This is a glow engine and does come with a glow plug. It also comes with a pull start but you can purchase an electric start for it, (part # RED70111E-KIT).
What is the top speed?
With a fully broken in engine and with it properly tuned, this car should be about 35 to 40 mph.
