November 1... You have to remember that most of the drivers here have been in the hobby for alittle while... Some like to race there cars on a true RC track and not just drag race... Not that that's bad and since you're new to hobby and just want to learn and have fun.... Traxxas is good company and great support, the N4TEC is a good RTR as well... I even had one myself
Here's a link to there forum page and may I suggest that you give VirtualRC a try as well... It has almost all the fun of racing and you can learn how to drive many of the top 1/10 & 1/8th scale on road cars free of charge... Here's the link to Traxxas forum page and Virtual RC as well... Good Luck.
