Questions?? Recommend me a good RTR touringcar

Hi !

Im a noob in the RC-world....ive only been driving for a few months (Traxxas Slash 4x4 1:10 and the Traxxas Boss 302)...and i need your help.

Im looking for a good touringcar/onroad for racing on asphalt. Preferable 1:10 or 1:12.

Also since im technical like an elephant it needs to be RTR, no kit since i dont know how to build stuff at all. I really like cars that look like cars and not Buggys or something like that.

Any recommendations ?

Ive been looking a bit at the HPI 2 Sprint Flux.....any good ?

Maybe the new Traxxas Rally 1:10 would be good for aphalt ? since ive got Traxxas already it would be easier with parts, batteries etc.

any help is appreciated !

First, welcome to the forums.

Second, there is a lot of information here, and the search function can, and will, do you and a lot of the members here a lot of good.

That said, there are isn't going to be a lot of digging for you to do, to be honest.

You mentioned racing--by that, I'm assuming you mean organized racing on at least a temporary parking lot track with timing and regulations per class. Instead of focusing on a specific RTR car, go to your local track, look at all the different classes that run, decide which class you wish to start in that is appropriate for your skill level and budget/time constraints, and then decide if a car in that particular class is available in RTR form.

Aside from the "catch-all" entry level classes (if you're lucky to have one at your track), you will need to learn to work on your car. At the very least, you will need to be able to change speed controllers, motors, and gearing to race in a specified class, whatever that may be.

I would not discourage you at all from participating in racing, but just because it is with "small toy cars" does not mean that it is no less technical than their full-scale equivalent--even at the club level, there is a lot of tweaking and maintenance to go around.
