its more of a basher's car. You cant race these at the club races cause of the engine size and because it just cant keep up with todays touring cars. If you put in a proper engine the drivetrain may not be able to handle the power. If you have the HPI cup in your area wherein everyone drives the same car thats a great place to start racing.
I enjoyed the Rs4 Nitro RTR Evo 3 +. I know it is a mouthful to say but the engine starts right up and has plenty of power. Just watch the ball cups, as they are prone to coming off if you hit something.
