Default New Car-For beginners

Hi guys,

I am new to Nitro Cars and wondered if anyone had any advice on a car to get. I have a budget of about 60 and im fairly praticle and could fix some problems with cars. My brother had one a few years back but he sold it and didnt get another one. I really enjoyed using it now i have some money was thinking of getting one myself.

Thanks alot,

Tom

TBH for 60 you are not going to find much nitro powered from new, also do you have any items already or would you be needing a RTR with everything included, im guessing that the closest to your budget will probably be a small scale 1/16th 1/12th elec truck/buggy with everything included, let us know exactly what you have already what power source you would like and maybe more ideas will appear
