My question is for a beginner to onroad, what do you recommend? I want to be competetive in a stock or sportsman class. I am sure all will do, but are there good points and bad points I should be aware of?
I was looking at the TC4 RTR, would this put me at a disadvantage over buying the TC4 kit and adding my own radio?
I know alot of it is preference, but I guess I am asking what is yours?
Thank you in advance for the help!
Hey Kc, welcome to the fold!
Well...Honestly I would always recommend that you purchase a kit as opposed to an RTR. Why? Because you learn the car inside and out while building it, thus making subsequent maintenance much, much easier.
Second bit of advice. BUY GOOD TOOLS!!! Select your car, then depending on if it uses standard or Metric screws, buy an allen-driver set for the car. It will make building and working onyour car so much easier.
I recommend a set by OFNA, ASSOCIATED, HUDY or RACERS-EDGE.
Now...as far as what car to get. Well first get what you can afford, and get what you have good local parts support for.
Personally, if you have the dough and want an "easy" car to drive fast...Pony up and buy the XRay.
