not true. what if your hobby shop stocks crap cars? i'm more than certain your store stocks more than just tamiya. it would be stupid to do this, (stock only tamiya). check weather they have hpi, kyosho, mugen, serpent, NEO. maybe take your time and drive to the second nearest store? get a good car from the start.
don't take this the wrong way, i'm not saying the tg10R is bad, all im saying is don't let the hobby store sell you shyt that you don't want just cuz they stock it. i've seen a few tg10's (non R versions i think) and they were pritty bad. they are not really even good for a begginer to use for racing. i'd say go with hpi, or a kyosho v1s, NEO t21, or a mugen (the beginer vrs's). maybe the R is alot better.
the layout is a little like the tc3 noticed?
