Default Help Needed On First On-Road RC

Hi guys,

I'm looking forward to buy my first on-road RC and I'm standing up in front of the following dilemma:

- HPI RS4 Sport 3 Flux (hpiracing.com/en/kit/114350)
- Kyosho FAZER VEi Dodge SRT Challenger 2015 HELLCAT Green (rc.kyosho.com/en/rccar/eponroad/34051t1.html)

I'm not going to express my feelings yet about both cars as I do not want to affect somebody's opinion.

Thanks in advance for the help.

It depends if you are planning to do on road racing later, If so I suggest the TC 4 from Team Associated which will give you a good starting point on the learning curve.

It's going to be just for fun. Go to some empty parking lot or something and spin around. But I'm wondering between only these two.

Is there a reason you're specifically limiting yourself to those two choices? The TC4 previously mentioned is also a shaft drive chassis and generally has better parts availability.

Thumbs up

I'd steer clear of any belt cars for parking lot bashing. The tc4 club racer would be perfect and is still available really cheap.

I'm not limiting myself but I live in Europe outside the UK and I'm going to order everything from there and what I can see in ebay for Team Associated is not too much as for the HPI and Kyosho things look better.
