Hi. Iím looking for an entry-level ready-to-run R/C car and need advice. Currently I have a $30 Nikko car from Target, so basically I want something faster.
Iím not ready for nitro cars. Iíd like a quick electric car (preferably a street car instead of a buggy or truck) for around $100 because I donít play enough to justify a high cost. If possible at a low price, Iíd like interchangeable wheels so I can get drifting tires. Iíve been looking on the internet at all kinds of sites for a while now, and itís hard to find the perfect r/c car. I may have to go up to $150.
Some cars Iíve come across are the HPI Dash kits, and the Carisma (almost RTR) Ferraris. I like how you can remove the body on the HPI Dash and how the tires look. I believe both HPI and Carisma have a 380 motor, which is apparently slow from what people say, but I donít know how it compares to my Nikko Bullet.
Additionally, thereís a Nikko Enzo Ferrari that says it can go around 230 MPH scale speed, which sounds fast. Maybe I should go with this, even though itís non-customizable? Oh, and thereís this car called the Real Driver something, which has an interesting controller.
I also ran across a couple small trucks, such as the Associated RC18T, and DuraTrax Mini Quake. There are also Kyosho mini cars (about 5Ē long?), but those might be slow.
Maybe I need something with the 540 motor, but again, I donít want to spend too much.
Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I canít wait to get a fast r/c car and start playing.
