Default help me

1.I have been considering getting a cheap offroad nitro vehicle.Are there any good ones that are durable,yet easy to tune? 2.If I get one,it will come with 1-2 hours of labor on the vehicle. What would I want to do with it in that timeframe? 3.What are good fuel brands? 4.I have been told by the guys at Big Boy Toys that you cannot drift with these machines. Is there any way to get around that? 5.What accessories or spare parts would I need to start???

Pretty much any RTR would be good for a beginner, just depends on how much you want to spend. A good one i have seen and used is the Robitronic Protos. Its pretty durable, but like any RTR you have to locktight the screws down.

as far as drifting i dont have a clue lol

Like jason said the ofna buggys are goood rtrs. i use traxxas top fuel. as far as drifting, i suppose if you like driving on sand or dusty pavement you could drift it but it would be more like controlled spinning out. ive done plenty of that

All these buggy's are great starting cars. A good kind of fuel to use would be o'donnel. As far as drifting, I guess you could drive the car with the rims ONLY. I now that if you have a touring car, you can put PVC pipe around the tire to get the same effect, so just run the car with no tires on.
