I guess first step would to go to the track and see if they have a class you can run your Revo in. Race and see if you do like it. Then see what class you would like to race in if you want to race another vehicle.

Not many tracks run a MT class anymore. Checkout the tracks and try to get an idea what class you'd be interested in and what they run. After that, you can go on to decide on brand. Racing isn't cheap, so be prepared with $500 - $1000.
