Default warhead

hey everyone, i am new to nitro cars, and just bought myself a hsp warhead, it was cheap and has been good for me so far,

um i was just wondering :"

i want to race it at the track do you tthink it would stand a chance, i am probably going to upgrade it to aluminium parts and get a .21 engine in it ?

but if i dont get the engine would i havbe a chance ?'

i am only 13
kind regards james

hey buddy,

i beleive put in the right hands it could win a race or two but i would recommend as a beginner to look at uprgrading the whole vehicle if your budget allows that. A cheap good option is a hot bodies d8. But as far as the war head goes it will break alot and you probably will find that frustrating if you cant seem to finisdh a rac just my thoughts good luck and stick with it

ok thanks mate, i will try upgrading most parts to alluminium so it wont break, but the size of it, it is a 1/10 th scale buggy is that small to go into races ?

and is it fast enough ?

I HAVE ALLREADY GOT A UPGRADE KIT ON IT WITH ANEW EXAUST AND SOME ALLUMINIUM PARTS

KIND REGARDS JAMES

some clubs will let you race it.Try heading down to a race day and getting some of the racers opions they will be able to tell you more and show you the differences between theres and yours.I strongly advise thinking about upgrading though hsp is very low line.
