I have never driven an onroad car and I'm not really planning on competing with it. I have plenty of 2s 50c packs. I would use my own ko radio and I can upgrade the servo. I see hpi has a drift specific rtr car and then there are several others. Any suggestions and why.
Thanks in advance.
Tamiya TT-01 is a great intro car, if you are more experienced get the TA-05, Yokomo Spec D, ABC Genetic, HPI Sprint 2. I don't recommend Team Associated TC ANYTHING, Nitro Anything, or Red Cat. The car you buy also depends on if you prefer belt driven or shaft driven. Shaft is easier to maintain in my eyes, and belt has better response but is a pain in the ass.
