Which on-road car - TC4 TC6 Sprint 2 ?
I already searched in the forum, but I am still not sure which care to get. I had an eRevo brushless, but sold it as I was mainly driving it on the street or gras. I than brought a Traxxas Ken Block Rally and have fun with it. Now I am looking for a 2nd car, not sure if my young son or my wife will start racing with me, but there are not too many tracks around (if somebody knows something around the bay area north california please let me know. norcalhobbies seems to be mainly off road).
I initially thought of another Traxxas Rally, but why the same car again. Next was a HPI Sprint 2 flux. Reading through different posts I got interessted into a TC6 or TC6.1, but that seems to be racing car whil I am not sure how often I will really drive to a track. Not sure if it is worth spending that much money, also I read that many recommended a TC4 for starters. Not sure if I am still a starter, but I am for sure not a serious racer. Xray seems to be expensive too.
Checking the local hobby stores they have parts for Traxxas (all), Team Associated, HPI, not sure which other brands.
Right now I am thinking more of a TC4, but some guys mentioned that the shaft drive has issues with very powerful motors. Is this right and what kind of motor would be recommended? The standard seems to be with 17.5T, how low could/should I go? is 10.5 still okay
