Thumbs up New guys help

Hello guys

I'm am very new to this forum and one thing I can say is that everyone is very willing to help.

But what I have found missing is info for the new boys like me,if a new guy wants to stop the rtr and step up his game what buggies and motors ect ect should he go with.

For me I'm looking at a d8 or sworkz or jq buggy and a Werks motor or just about any motor from rcrenew ( very good guy with good product) ..

Now what do you think and why?

hi.

you should go to your track and see what the best gays there are using.
It is more easy to get help with setup your car if the brand is the same.
The same goes for the motor.
Almoust any "kit" car is good/better than an RTR.

To drive fast you just need to practise,a lot. And practise is more importent than setup.When you know the cars reaction to the track,thats the time to put words on what you want more or less of.
You need to find your style.Dont just copy a setup that fits the best gay,it may
be worst for you.

You should also consider if it is possible to get parts for the car in your local store.If you are driving a lot...

I am currently running an SWorkz with a Werks B6 and it is a great combo. The car is awesome and the fact that the guys distributing the car are easy to get a hold of and always willing to help is a HUGE plus. The car is super easy to drive and very durable, plus you get quite a few options in the box. It is a great deal. The Werks motor has been good to me so far. Easy to tune and tons of power.
