Holy 2 years old batman, this thread is OLD......

The only thing worth it for that price will be the HB D8.....and thats not exactly the pro model. Nitro and EP Chassis cost about the same. I have never had a problem tuning an engine when its a quality engine.

Default If I only had 450 I'd drop it on a...

X3 saber or a HB D8.

Parts are a bit more expensive for the Saber...

The stock Hara chassis is a bit to flexy...

Both have a good deal of set up info here on tech... Even though the D8 guys - me included do a heap of tinkering to the car - but it handles awesome.

The Sabres I have seen handle great too...

Your call really... HB due to release something new later this year though

Oh an Ofna........... I see...... I wasnt tryin to scare anyone. I just have never seen one or heard of it, thats all. When ever I advise a car, I always think of support.

Can you get parts easy and regularly? Amain is out of alot of parts at the moment.

Can you get support at the track? Not if no one has it..

Im not saying its bad or not.

I think that there are a couple of good ones on that page for example the Hot bodies is a fairly decent car.

that plastic servo tray looks like it will kill throttle servos.
