1. Tamiya and Kyosho are both great names but..Tamiya support through hobby shops seems to be much better than Kyosho
2. Don't concern yourself with brushless yet. The Tamiya probably comes with a brushed "can" motor. This is a very inexpensive "disposable" type motor. FYI, it is basically a industrial motor.
3. If you decide to race and there is a local shop that offers Tamiya Challenge Series (TCS) racing; you could use your car to race a novice class with little change.
4. Don't be swayed by cool bodies or paint jobs. Many different bodies are available. Tamiya, Kyosho,HPI and other companies make them. Learning to paint will take some time and you must consider bodies as disposable. You will ruin bodies and you WILL break parts.
I honestly believe the Tamiya would be a better choice in the long run. This is your first car...not your last. Sometime in the future you may try another brand and find you like it but you won't know until you can actually recognise the differences.
Good Luck and most of all...HAVE FUN !!!!!
Thanks rctrackman. I just want to get a value for money car since this is my first car, I tends to be more careful.
Do you recommend buying LiPo battery and its charger for my first car or upgrade to LiPo at a later stage just like the brushless motor?
