rc is a great hobby but can be very expensive if you want to get competitive. the price of the car is nothing compare to the price of the equipments you going to need to build, maintain and run your car. here is a shopping list for you.
car = $400
body/paint = $30
esc = $150
servo = $100
motor = $30 (stock) $40-$60 (modified)
tires/wheels = $20 - $35
batteries = $40 - $70 a pack (one pack = 2 runs/day) you need more than 1
radio = you want the best of the best car so u want best of the best radio $250 - $350
charger = $119.99 - $500
power supply = $70 = $300
equalizer = $70 - $100
soldering iron = $70 - $100+
those are the things you need to RUN your car. then theres....
tools, tool box, spare parts.........
if you are just starting out and money is tight, i suggest getting a RTR (ready to run) car and go from there.
