I am trying to get my Dad into the Hobby of Nitro R/C On-road. He has barely any intrest in it. His birthday is on July 22. I was thinking of fixing up my old NTC3 which needs engine, shocks, electronics, steering servo mounts, and screws for the fuel tank. But then again that might be somewhere around 220(about 180 for engine, 40 or more in parts). What do you think I should do? He has never driven a R/C before. So durability is the key here.
That is a really interesting thread. It can be useful to know how other guys have gotten their dads in the RC hobby. They can help you with your hobby with their experience and also with their cash. I took my dad to a race and after that i got some pretty neat stuff for my car. When they see the actual race and the problems that are connected with it. So if you can hook your dad on RC it will be the best thing you can do for your hobby.
